Your Questions Answered

corvid 19 support Lytham

Have you any questions or queries but not too sure where to ask them or getting conflicting advice on your posts??
This originally started as ‘Ask the Panel’  where several kind people (listed below) agreed to help try and answer your questions, and whereas we thought the questions would be of a practical nature, we were shocked to discover most turned out to be very sad and basically cries for help.


A broad brush summarising the questions so far,  they have been 
Singe parents/parents not coping with their children
People very anxious
People on their own and not being able to see ‘loved ones’
People who are Disabled or with limited mobility getting essential shopping
Queries over the 80% being paid by employers
Whether Lytham Festival will go ahead (still not confirmed)
Employees not being kept in formed by their employers
Furlough information
Where to find help with school work


All these have been answered directly or channeled to somewhere/someone who is more qualified to provide an answer.
So I changed tack and have tried to encompass all the info (and links to them) that you may need and some just to help boost your health and well being. without you having to trawl through Facebook to find the posts.
