Message from Gill Cookson, chair of Scarborough and Whitby CLP, to all members and friends:
The CLP has more than 900 members, who now find themselves in very different circumstances. To those who work in health and care services – or who are on the public frontline in shops, public transport, education, deliveries – I hope you know that you’re appreciated as never before.
We also know that many LP members will be in physical isolation because of their age or health conditions. This shouldn’t also mean social isolation. Please know that we will help if we can – perhaps find a local (or online) ‘buddy’ to keep in touch.
The priority for everyone: please do your very best to keep safe. I’m sorry if that sounds like a platitude, because some of you are taking risks every single day. But be as safe as you can, and do let us know how we can help.
