From the beginning of lockdown The Royal Burgh of Crail and District Community Council recruited volunteers to make deliveries from local shops and also implemented a dedicated phone number that people can call or text for information and also to volunteer assistance. The number is also accessible via WhatsApp.
The Community Council (CC) also collated details of local shop opening times and ordering arrangements which are published in the weekly newsletter Crail Matters.
Facilitated by the Royal Burgh of Crail and District Community Council and funded by Crail Matters, 400 face coverings were made and distributed free in the community via Crail Pharmacy.
The CC also appealed for young volunteers who would be willing to deliver papers, milk, etc. to those in the community who may need support.
Funding to enable the CC to respond appropriately to the Covid-19 crisis was received from the Crail Settlement Trust.
