Revised Guidance for support
The Nethy Support Activities are classified as essential by the Government. We serve only those self-isolating, including age 70+ and NHS staff. Delivery of groceries will only be in a meaningful amount of essential items. Details of doorstep delivery service from Nethy Shops are below. If you require any further information use the ‘contact us’ link in the green footer below
RSPB offices, car parks and the vehicular access track to Forest Lodge are closed. The Abernethy Reserve remains accessible on foot/bike to people living in the area, following Government social distancing guidelines.
Abernethy Golf Club
As required by the Government, the Golf Club is closed. If you choose to take a walk on the golf course, provided that you keep a safe distance from everyone else, the club will not object.

Village contact list
The support we are offering is changing quickly, faster than we can leaflet all the homes in Nethy, so
we have to switch to email and online updates (with phone backup for those without email)
Moving forward please check nethybridge.com and
the Nethy Facebook page
If you agree that we (volunteers working with Nethy Community Council) can store your details only
for this campaign, please send your name and phone number to email@example.com. We may
pass them to health and other government authorities if the situation requires it, but no-one else. If
you do not have access to email please ring Heidi on 07734806765 to register your phone number.
Of course send us any support requests you have that your area supporter is not able to help with.

Support Local – Doorstep Delivery Service
It is so important to support our local businesses through this tricky time and together we have pulled
together a service to home deliver fresh produce to your doorstep.
