During the current Coronavirus situation the Yetholm Resilience Group has been using Facebook as a means of sharing information with members of the local community. However, the group is aware that not everyone uses Facebook so we have set up an email address to broaden our reach in communicating with the community. If you would like to be added to the distribution list please send an email to email@example.com
All E-mails from the Yetholm Resilience Group will be sent using the (blind carbon copy) bcc function, so your address will not be shared with others in the distribution list.
Unfortunately, communicating via Facebook and E-mail will not reach everyone in the community. If you have friends or neighbours who are not on E-mail etc., perhaps you could give them a phone call to share any updates that might be useful to them.
Yetholm Resilience Group – Medication Pick-up Service
We are putting in place a pick-up and village distribution service for prescription medication for Yetholm residents from Boots and Lloyds in Kelso. We have arranged with the 2 pharmacies that if you contact us with the following information we can make the pick-ups on your behalf:-
Once we have collected the medication we will arrange delivery to your house. In order to maintain social distancing, the volunteer making the delivery will put the medication on your doorstep and then knock/ring the bell, before standing 2metres back from the door while you open it.
To access this service, please e-mail us on firstname.lastname@example.org . Alternatively you can phone 07904 165240 but if at all possible we would prefer to receive an e-mail. Please give us as much notice as possible and we will do our best to get your medication to you. Please be assured that any information you provide will be used in the strictest confidence.
Yetholm Community Council will Not Meet in March and for the forseeable Future. Please see CC page for further information.
