Crakehall with Langthorne Parish Council is concerned for the health and well-being of all its
residents at this difficult time. The council has no direct responsibilities in relation to this matter but
urges everyone to follow the advice given by the relevant national and local agencies. The council is
particularly concerned about the elderly, the vulnerable and folk who live alone and so it urges
everyone to pull together as one strong, caring and supportive community.
Most villages and areas are setting up groups to make sure that everyone is looked after. Crakehall
and Langthorne are no exceptions. Most people have family, friends or neighbours to help them if
they need to stay at home for an extended length of time but some have no one they can call on or
need additional help. Your support could make a massive difference to their physical and mental
Also, BEDALE COVID-19 MUTUAL AID has been set up with a 24-hour helpline to make sure that everyone
in the Bedale area can get help. HELPLINE: 01677 455056. If you ring, you will hear a recorded message asking
for your name, address and phone number and a brief description of why you need help. Someone will ring you
back, though it may not be immediately – but they will check messages throughout the day and into the evening.
