This special edition of Around Ealing is entirely related to the coronavirus pandemic and its impact on local services and local people. You can view it in interactive and PDF formats below.
In his introduction, the leader of the council Julian Bell wrote: ‘I have been deeply saddened by the news that people from our borough have died because of the coronavirus (or COVID-19). My sincere condolences go out to their family and friends.
‘I am asking people, pleading with people, to stay at home. If people do not do this, more people will die; and we will put our NHS staff under intolerable pressure.
‘There really is no need to go outside unless you are a key worker; or unless you need to go to the shops for vital food and supplies or as a volunteer helping the vulnerable. One bit of exercise per day is also permitted outdoors on your own or in groups of no more than two people – but I will say more on this later.’
As well as tackling the issues around making sure we are all social distancing during the coronavirus emergency, the magazine gives you details of the Ealing Together project set-up to support those in need in our community, an emergency fund; and also some ideas for keeping active – mentally and physically – when you are staying at home.
