Local Support For The Residents Of
Shenington and Alkerton
The Shenington With Alkerton Community Response led by Gill Marshall has set up a team of coordinators who provide support for every home within the parish. All houses have received a leaflet advising them of the name of their coordinator, how we will communicate, the traffic light system and arrangements for ordering and delivery of shopping and collecting prescriptions.
Prescriptions can be collected Monday to Friday. Ad-hoc queries are handled on an individual basis. Please click the file to the right to view the information.

Please be aware that during the Coronavirus crisis the fraudsters are trying to take advantage by sending malicious texts, emails and making phone calls.
Please be careful and don't click on links within emails or texts if you aren't certain where they have come from. Fraudsters often use the logo of official organisations but neither HMRC or the Police will ask for payment or your bank details in this way. If you aren't absolutely certain if a link is a fraud or not please contact the organisation first by locating the telephone number independently yourself and not using one quoted on the message.
