Coronavirus (Covid-19) Preparedness in the Village

Alnmouth is a caring community. It is also a community with an age profile heavily weighted towards the upper end. According to the 2011 Census around 40% of the Parish population was over 65; double the national average - and that was 9 years ago!


Consequently, the village is taking the threat of the Coronavirus very seriously.

A number of support groups exist to assist those who may need help. These are being co-ordinated within Alnmouth, Hipsburn and Lesbury by:

Parish Council - At Risk 'Spotters'

The Parish Council, together with Nick Mattlock and Helen Holden, have set up a team of 'spotters' who live around the village and who can identify those at risk in their vicinity and ensure help is at hand. They are working hard to ensure a supply of essentials are available in the village.
