Pulling Together Ludlow

The community site to combat coronavirus

We are not able to give medical advice, please contact 111 on-line or call your GP or call 111 out-of-hours.

Pulling Together Ludlow is a coalition of groups in Ludlow, including the Portcullis and Station Drive GPs, Hands Together Ludlow and the Pulling Together Ludlow Facebook group. We have set up this site to help the community act together deal with the coronavirus. Our emphasis is on connecting people who want to help with people who need help. We do not want to duplicate official guidance that is available elsewhere.

NEW LOCKDOWN from 5th November 2020

Government guidance can be found here.

HTL continues to operate as it has done since the end of the last lockdown. The Helpline and all our volunteer services ARE STILL THERE FOR YOU. The Pulling Together Ludlow Facebook group and NextDoor.com for Ludlow are also means for the community to keep in touch and help each other.

We have set up a helpline for those who need help.

We are starting with food deliveries. If you need help, please call this number:

01584 817 250 

At present, the help line is open 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday to Saturday.  At other times, when the number is in use  and all day Sunday, please leave a message and we will respond as soon as possible.  These times may change in the future. Please be patient, we are busy. 

When you call the number, you will be asked to press “0”  (zero) to proceed. We have done this so that we can add more options in the future, if needed.

You can email us to ask for assistance by clicking here.

We are collecting information about people who would like to volunteer.  This could be help with shopping, talking on the telephone or social media to someone who is in self-isolation or helping us by taking calls on the helpline for an hour or two each day. You can email this information to us using this link  or use the downloadable forms below or use the ‘Contact’ option at the top of this page.

If you are a person who is regarded as ‘extremely vulnerable’ by the NHS, you should have received a letter from them about this in the last week or so and, as a result, you will be known to the local authorities etc.  If you think you (or anyone you know) are in this group and have NOT received a letter, CONTACT YOUR GP.  More information is available here.
