STOP PRESS NEWS : Posted 7th November 2020
Our Digital Distractions programme of one-hour online events between now and 2nd December is growing.
With the colder weather and renewed restrictions keeping us indoors over the next month we are offering a programme of activities via zoom for our Neighbours in New Milton, Ashley, Bashley and Barton-on-Sea. A series of one-hour sessions over the whole of November some for fun, some for information but all with the intention of keeping us connected and maintaining our wellbeing.
The New Milton Covid Support Group will host every meeting but we have invited special guests along to lead talks and activities to entertain and fill at least one hour of your day with a distraction from the limitations of lockdown.
Learn more about these sessions.

ORIGINAL MISSION :
The Group recognises that everyone is at risk of being affected by this pandemic, but that a pandemic doesn’t hit everyone equally. That’s why we’re concerned to ensure there is sufficient support for the most vulnerable, including the elderly and those with pre-existing health conditions, during the outbreak.
This group is to serve people who live in the geographical area of New Milton, Ashley, Barton and Bashley.
Beneficiaries should be aware that volunteers are not DBS checked however basic safeguarding protocols are in place. All volunteers are simply kind, community minded individuals who want to help out their neighbours at this time of crisis. The Organising Group and volunteers accept no liability or responsibility for damage or loss of property, infection or other issues resulting from contact between volunteers and beneficiaries.
