Update on Morham Resilience

Firstly, a big thank you to all those who have offered support. We have a great, supportive, community and things are moving quickly so the main thing is that we are connected.  So, to update on where and how to access information and assistance.

General Morham-specific information:
The main information channel for Morham residents will be ‘Morham – We Live Here‘  Facebook group. This is only for residents and will be used for Morham-specific information.
We will not be replacing national advice channels so please continue to refer to Scottish Government, NHS and East Lothian Council for updated information (see below for links).
If you are not happy to be on Facebook, please contact us through the contact form below to make us aware that you are not able to access this loop.

Requests / Offers for specific Assistance:
The assist/risk register is our central record of residents who have opted in to help out or would like us to know they may need extra support. This list is protected and confidential within the Resilience Group, and all data held according to the Data Privacy Policy of Morham Village Hall. We will use this register to create links in response to requests for assistance.

We have contacted a volunteer from this register in many of our housing clusters to ask them to be a point of contact in case our movements are made more limited. Please let us know if you are able to help with this, we are not yet 100% coverage.

Examples of Morham Specific Services you will see on the Facebook group:
– The owner of Lanterne Rouge is a resident and is offering delivery of evening meal from the cafe to those stuck at home as he heads home.

– Johnson’s Fruit and Veg van will visit the car park behind Mainshill Steading on Tuesday at 11am. If you are not currently leaving the house, please let us know as they can make up boxes for doorstep drops.

Obviously things are changing rapidly so please join the group for most up to date information.

Message for Morham residents

We know that in this little community you will be looking out for each other and helping your neighbours at a time like this but we want to ensure that everyone has the support they need.

The Morham Resilience Register already exists as a community-wide list of those who have offered to provide help in the event of local emergencies, and those who consider themselves especially at risk. It allows us as a community to ensure we’re kept informed of current coronavirus guidance, and to offer a network of support for those who need it.

This is co-ordinated through the Village Hall Membership, as this facility could become key in any type of emergency response, and membership provides consent to contact. If you haven’t already, please do sign up to be a Member of Morham Village Hall.

We will also use the private Facebook Group ‘Morham-We Live Here’ to make requests for specific help such as shopping and picking up medicines etc for those self-isolating. Morham residents can join this group and to keep an eye for ways you could help. If you are not active on Facebook, you can register to join a response group with your mobile phone number.

Please contact us through the Hall enquiry form:

Village Show 22nd August and Seed Exchange 30th May

The Village Show will take place on Saturday 22nd August. A couple of things to note on the schedule:

  • Show/village bunting: Next year the Show celebrates its 70th anniversary and we think bunting will be required! So this year’s schedule includes 2m of bunting, which can be donated to make a big bunting for next year.
  • Children categories – strawberries: We are having a strawberry planting session outside the hall on Saturday 30th May – all kids welcome to come and plant strawberries for the Show.

You can see the full schedule at:

Seed and Seedling Exchange – Saturday 30th May

We are holding a seed and seedling exchange outside the hall on Saturday 30th May (alongside strawberry planting) – watch out for further notice. Bring along spare seeds and spare seedlings to swap/share.

 

The hunt for Morham Castle

Due to the exciting initial finds made in the recent dig (there’s a report on its way), the archaeologists are keen to return for two weeks this time and will be looking for volunteers again.
Even if you’re unable to volunteer, pop along and have a look, we’re so lucky to have this wonderful opportunity to discover more of the history on our doorstep!

Dates to follow but likely end of March.
