CORONAVIRUS help and advice

As the Coronavirus situation has become more serious, Bayle Residents Association has been taking steps to support our members

The health of our members is our biggest priority and we are closely following the advice of Public Health England and the World Health Organisation. General advice can be found on the NHS website, click here…

Like many other organisations, BRA will try to take decisions which balance the need to protect people and avoid spreading the virus even further, with the importance of maintaining day to day life. For the foreseeable future we will not be holding indoor BRA meetings or group events. Instead, we will focus our efforts on how we can all help to look out for each other as good neighbours.

If you are feeling worried or unwell

We are here to support each other and to listen to any suggestions regarding extra care for anyone who needs help. As a local community, we may be able to assist if you are struggling with shopping, for example.

If you think we might be able to help in any practical way – or you would simply like someone to talk to – please do not hesitate to call the number below.

You can reach us as usual by email or telephone:  01303 240432 (answerphone) or if you feel that it is urgent, you can contact the Chair, Jon O’Connor directly on his mobile: 07958 663458

The possibility of social isolation affecting your well-being is something we can help with.
