At this very difficult time for us all, your TOTTINGTON Cllrs want to place on record our thanks for all that you are doing to support our local community.
We hope you are all coping with the challenge of being in your homes day and night and looking after your own well-being and those close to you.
We want to place on record our thanks to our Council staff who are working around the clock to ensure local services are kept operating
We don’t intend to give you the usual updates on casework and the meetings we have attended since our last updates. As you can well anticipate all the ongoing issues are still very important but on the back burner now and of course meetings are all suspended too.
The Council have to concentrate on keeping everyone safe and importantly that those vulnerable people in need of assistance will receive help promptly.
Bin services are disrupted due to staff sickness and we understand that the bin alerts some receive by email are presently not accurate …..as there is a problem in stopping the mails being sent !
Public waste bins have been covered as staff are needed elsewhere .A small ask is to please take your doggie bags home and place in your own bin.
Two weeks ago a “ Phone a Friend “ scheme for our Ward was set up by Yvonne, and she has over 40 volunteers. It is very heartwarming that so many people of all ages responded quickly to my appeal. Thank you for this and all the many acts of goodwill which are taking place in our township.
However despite delivering flyers to targeted homes where the elderly live, the take up has been slow… If you know of someone who would benefit from a friend on the phone calling, do let me know but please note that I do not need any more volunteers at present.
Following next week will be details of hot food which can be delivered to your door by Proprietor of the TOTTINGTON Tea Room ( in the Library) Kelly Ann Simister.
Here is a link to an update from Eamonn Boylan, Chief Executive of Transport for Greater Manchester Combined Authority, regarding the impact of Covid-19 on public transport in Greater Manchester and work being undertaken by TfGM in response.
Finally, please see below a useful list of small local companies who deliver food etc.
Please stay home and stay safe !

Food Suppliers- Delivery or collection
We have been informed that the following suppliers will deliver food to homes, or that can be paid over the phone and then food can be collected.
This may help with people who cannot get out of the house, but who cannot wait for the next on line shopping slot for food.
Please be aware that these are NOT recommendations from us or the Council and not an endorsement, it is just who we have been made aware of who can supply food. If you would like to, please feel free to pass onto to your friends and neighbours.
