Working together as local communities during the Coronavirus

We know the spread of Coronavirus is causing difficulty and concern. Equally, from Queensferry to Muirhouse and from Kirkliston to Cramond, we’ve been blown away by the local community spirit and the willingness of local people to help where they can.

As your local representatives, we want to make sure vulnerable people in get the help they need.  This could be help with groceries, getting a prescription or posting urgent mail.

It is why we are working together to match people who need help with others willing and able to volunteer. This scheme covers Queensferry, Kirkliston, Cramond, Davidson’s Mains, Ratho Station, Newbridge, Muirhouse and Gogar.

We want to hear from people who may need assistance over the coming weeks as well as people who can volunteer locally.

If you think you might need help or know of someone who does, please complete our online form here.

If you are prepared to volunteer to help someone else locally, please click here.

We also want to highlight local Facebook pages set up for Kirkliston and for Queensferry to help coordinate help locally and provide information and ideas on services that you can get direct to your door.

Please do let us know if there are others ways we can help. Equally if you’d just appreciate a call from one of us to talk through any issues and to help with any questions, please let us know by replying to this email.

With best wishes,

Cllr Kevin Lang                                Cllr Louise Young
Alex Cole-Hamilton MSP               Christine Jardine MP
