The Coltishall and Horstead Community Support Group was set up in lockdown, to help those in need during the coronavirus pandemic.
The support group cares in a range of ways for those having to shelter due to being vulnerable, from food deliveries, to safe prayer, the group has become a lifeline for those without local friends or family to help.
Local shops and the Luncheon Club have started deliveries, Reverend Christopher Engelsen puts on Private Prayer sessions each week and Good Neighbours continue their service of lifts, deliveries and befriending services.
The group follows the Government guidelines, implementing safety measures to keep everyone involved safe, such as wearing masks, wiping things down regularly, using hand sanitiser and keeping socially distanced when possible.
The group has shown the power of a community to adapt and pull together at a time of crisis to help those in need and keep everyone safe.
