Acharacle Community Council has issued some help and support information for local residents during the current COVID-19 pandemic.

Acharacle Keystore has offered to deliver shopping to homes in the Acharacle area free of charge – please call them to place an order (01967 431257).

The West Lochaber Hospital Transport Project has advised that the vehicle can now be booked to undertake other necessary journeys, including for shopping. Please contact Jane Gaze, Project Officer (07749 613468 / 01967 431411).

The community council added: ‘Please check that friends, family and neighbours are receiving any assistance they require. This might include otherwise fit, active and healthy people who don’t usually need any help, but whose movements are restricted. Simply offering to drop their daily newspaper into them, might be all the support they need.

‘We are all likely to be feeling a little isolated over the next few weeks, so please try to keep up with contact by telephone and internet. We are fortunate to be surrounded by ‘the great outdoors’, so take the opportunity to get out and enjoy it!

‘If anyone is struggling with anything as a result of this situation, and you don’t know who to turn to, please let us know and we will try to help.

‘If you are aware of any situations which aren’t being dealt with adequately, please let us know and we will try to help. We will post updates as necessary.

Please post messages on our Facebook page or contact Joanne Matheson on 07976 439190 –’
