A series of local, streetwise, neighbourhood coronavirus resilience groups are being set up across Eskbank and Newbattle to organise neighbours who can offer help and neighbours who need help. These are coming together through closed Facebook pages administered by residents of each neighbourhood, and residents should find their local group on Facebook and apply to join.
Different neighbourhoods will have their own organisation and ways of communication, especially with neighbours who don’t use Facebook or even use computers or other smart devices. Additional intra-neighbourhood communication may be set up, for example WhatsApp groups. Join and find out what your neighbourhood is doing.
A list of local neighbourhood groups is given in the table below. Click on the group name to go to their Facebook page.
