The scan works similarly to google maps. For example, if you press your curser on a door you will be able to move through. We hope everyone finds this virtual tour interesting and look forward to showing you around and holding events in the building in the not too distant future.

Lockdown help is a just click or a phone call away

A voluntary scheme that supported residents in the first seven months of the pandemic is getting ready to help out again as we enter a second lockdown.

‘Care for our Community – Sevenoaks District’ was set up in March to support vulnerable people, including those shielding. Around 1,500 volunteers came forward helping those in need by collecting their shopping and prescriptions, having a friendly chat and more.

The scheme was stood down in the autumn as the transmission of the virus fell. But, volunteers are once again getting ready to do their bit as a second lockdown looms.

As the nation prepares to stay at home once again to limit the spread of the virus, anyone who needs help is being urged to sign up to the ‘Care for our Community' scheme. To request help, residents should visit or call the Council on 01732 227000.

Cabinet Member for People and Places, Cllr Lesley Dyball, says: “Our volunteers have made a huge difference to the lives of hundreds of residents since the start of the pandemic. Once again, we are calling on their support as we head in to another lockdown and uncertain times.

"We know the next month is likely to be tough for many. But I want to reassure anyone who needs assistance that help is available. Simply contact us so we can put you in touch with a local volunteer."

'Care for our Community' consists of volunteers, town and parish councils and Sevenoaks District Council.
