A group that was started by just a few residents last week to help people in Newtown during the Coronavirus has grown into a major support network.

Newtown Network - Rhwydwaith Y Drenewydd is providing information and support throughout the town with organisations now also involved.

"We started out as a few volunteers and we are now a "Network" involving volunteers and professionals from a few organisations in the town including the Town Council, PAVO Community Connectors, Ponthafren Association, South Montgomeryshire Volunteer Bureau, the Salvation Army and All Saints Church," says the group. 

"We are evolving by the day in response to what is needed in the town. We aim to be a focal point for information and support volunteers to help people access food, complete errands etc - particularly those who are elderly, disabled and/or immunocompromised."

The Mayor of Newtown, Cllr David Selby, has praised the volunteers for their work which is helping ensure people know who to contact if they need help or advice or even food.

It has issued a newsletter with advice and contact telephone numbers and other information.
