28th January 2021:  Update from Ivy Court Surgery:  "Following the arrival of our first delivery of the AstraZeneca vaccine, we have been vaccinating our over 80’s every day this week. By the end of this weekend we will have vaccinated the vast majority of our over 80’s (those that we have been able to contact, and who are able to travel to the Surgery). We are planning to start vaccinating our housebound over 80’s next week. With our next delivery date confirmed, we are pre-emptively booking our next cohort of patients which is our over 75’s. As before, there is a large number of patients in this cohort and we ask that you please bear with us while we work through this list."

Call for volunteers

We are asking volunteers to come forward to help their immediate neighbours, as many of you already are. We need to understand what is going on so that no-one is forgotten and everyone is protected and helped. 

There are lots of different roles that need covering but Volunteers should be aged 18 or over.  Some need to be ‘out and about’ but others can volunteer without leaving home.

You may have specific skills or be prepared to assist the community in different ways. If you wish to volunteer in any capacity, please register now so we can be sure those in need are covered. Please telephone the Town Hall on 01580 762271.

Are you in need or know someone who is?

A team of “callback” volunteers has been specifically set up to help those in need. Please contact ‘Helping in Tenterden’ (based at the Social Hub) on 01580 761060.
