This SCAM warning has been sent to WI members, but is of general interest.
There is a scam going round which you might like to warn the Federation about. People are being sent an e-mail supposedly from the N.H.S. asking them to fill out a form if they want to have a vaccination against Covid 19. They are asking for personal details and ultimately details of a bank account in order to pay! We know this is not necessary as every eligible person will be contacted by their surgery in order of priority and more importantly there is no charge but this is a clever scam with no spelling mistakes or obvious alarm bells. There is always someone looking to make money when people are at their most vulnerable so I thought I should pass this on as a lot of our members will be waiting to hear when it will happen. It is always worth reminding our members to be vigilant and not to believe everything they read.

Letter from OneVoiceWales
I am writing to inform you that amendments have been made to the Health Protection (Coronavirus Restrictions) (Wales) Regulations 2020. The new regulations clarify the arrangements for funerals and crematoriums; and confirm that cemeteries can remain open but social distancing must be taken into account, as well as the need to take all reasonable measures to maintain the 2 metre rule at burials.
Guidance has been prepared to complement these changes to the Health Protection (Coronavirus Restrictions) (Wales) Regulations 2020, which will come into force on 7 April, and this can be found at:

Gladestry Community Support Group
Dear fellow Gladestry villagers,
In response to the advice from both the government and local NHS staff , several people in the village have come forward offering to support those who might need some help in the coming weeks during this very challenging time.
None of us know how this will affect us so we are keen that EVERYONE knows there is a support system in place, as and when people need to access it. It may be that you are self-isolating, in the more vulnerable category, have mobility issues or your relatives who would normally support you are isolating themselves. There is a team of people locally who are happy to help in whatever way is needed. For example:
There is a centralised number you can call if you would like to be included in this support scheme and if no one is there in person to answer your call please leave a message and we will make sure someone in the care team will get back to you as soon as they can.
There is a large team ready and willing to help

We will do our best to make sure this letter goes to everyone however if you know of anyone who did not receive one please let us know and we will make sure they get one.

The GACF was set up in November 2003 in order to administer the money still left in the Millennium Fund. A constitution was agreed, and the following objectives defined: - To stimulate and support activities, events and projects within the Gladestry Community Council area. - To aim to use the fund as a sort of seed capital for projects, whereby if a profit is made, some reimbursement is requested, but is not a requirement.
