Volunteers have been working hard to bring meals on wheels to Sidmouth residents that need it the most.
Sidmouth Voluntary Services (SVS) would normally pick up residents each day and take them to Twyford House where lunches are served and they are returned safely home.
Under current lockdown measures and social distancing requirements, this is no longer possible.
Instead, the kitchen has been pre-cooking meals, before volunteers deliver the food to people’s homes by the minibuses.
The kitchen at Twyford House was forced to temporarily close after a team member developed Covid-19 symptoms, and had to self-isolate, but deliveries will now resume on April 14.

SVS volunteers are also offering phone buddying, calling vulnerable elderly residents who would like someone to speak to or may have specific needs.
