Working Together, Grosmont

Because of the spread of the Coronavirus, many people are feeling very vulnerable. However, we are not alone. We are all part of a community, a strong Grosmont community, and we will try to help each other. We can start by minimising the risks to ourselves and others by following the guidelines.

 If we have symptoms of the virus (a new continuous cough and/or a high temperature):

  • We should stay at home for 7 days (self-isolate). If we live with other people, they should stay at home for 14 days. (It may take 7 days for their symptoms to appear)
  • We should not go to our GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital.
  • We do not need to contact 111 to tell them we are staying at home. However, if we feel we cannot cope at home, our condition gets worse or our symptoms do not get better after 7 days, we should complete the coronavirus symptom checker on: If you have no internet access, call 111 from your phone. In a medical emergency, dial 999.

Need Support?

If you are self-isolating, we will try to give you practical support, e.g. with emergency shopping or collecting prescriptions. Local resident volunteers will deliver your goods but not enter your house, to keep them and you safe. We are not a professional body but will do what we can within reason.  If, at any point over the next few weeks or months, you need someone to help in some way please contact one of the coordinators:

 By email:    (saying what kind of help you need and contact details).
By phone:
Alison or Richard Brown – (01981) 240563        Paul Sheridan – (01981) 241047

 Jenny Harter – (01981) 241488                                         Jan Chatfield – (01981) 240692
