News & Useful Resources

Whilst we all work through this unprecedented time, we thought we would put this page together to help support us all. We will put useful links here to resources that will help educate you on what is going on, links to places to entertain yourself, good news stories where individuals or companies have taken affirmative action to support the community and hopefully some stories to put a smile on your face.

If you have a good news story, or a link you would like included please let us know!

Tips from the World Health Organization:

  • Wash your hands frequently.
  • Avoid touching your face.
  • Sneeze and cough into a tissue or your elbow.
  • Avoid crowds and standing near others.
  • Stay home if you think you might be sick.
  • When in doubt consult with a healthcare professional.
