First online event for Ross-on-Wye Community Development Trust

This Thursday (22 October), the Ross-on-Wye Community Development Trust will launch the first in a series of live Facebook events designed to connect more effectively with the community and to address local issues affecting Ross-on-Wye and Herefordshire.

The topic for this week’s free online event – starting at 6pm on www.facebook.com/rosscdt – will be ‘Keeping Ross-on-Wye Safe’ and will cover how the threat of a second wave of coronavirus and a possible UK-wide lockdown will be handled locally and what the community can do to prevent further spread.

Dr Simon Lennane, GP and Clinical Primary Care Network Director, will be joined by Dr Sarah Aitken, a senior public health director with experience of coronavirus hotspot areas in Wales and Cllr Jane Roberts, Chair of the Ross-on-Wye Community Development Trust. If you have a question for the panel, you can email comms@rosscdt.org.uk in advance of the event, or send your questions in via their Facebook page or Twitter feed.

Dr Lennane commented: “We’re aiming to answer as many questions as we can, covering Covid-19 and how we can stay safe. We hope that this week’s live Q&A session will be the first of many regular online video events connecting the community.  Live events such as this offer a way to rebuild some of the connections we are all missing. Future topics will be led by local organisations, allowing us to discuss local issues and highlight the support available in our community.”
