It is vital people remain in touch

Phone Spot on Mary Street has been providing an important service which will hopefully help isolated people remain in contact with loved phones. Breaking, damaging or losing your phone at any time is annoying, but right now, there could be serious implications of a damaged or broken phone.

This is why it is great to hear of a local firm offering a delivery service, with no delivery charges, to ensure local residents stay in touch with others. The Director of Phone Spot, Fateh Singh, spoke to Dorset Echo, and said; “Taking into consideration the current crisis, I am starting a new collection, repair and deliver service. If you need your phone or tablet repaired we can collect, repair and deliver it back to you. We can also deliver phone accessories in case you need any.”

Fateh continued by saying; “Phone or tablets or laptops are as important as anything else. So I thought if I can do collection, repair and delivery service, that might help lots of people in these hard times. I am not charging any delivery charges just to help our local residents. In today’s world our mobile phones are very important for our everyday life, and I think my service will keep many people’s lives on track.”

Food boxes for those in isolation mean so much

Something which may be of interest to some residents is the initiative launched by Keep In Touch. They are offering boxes of essential food to vulnerable residents in Weymouth and surrounding areas. Many people aren’t able to leave their home, and may not have relatives or friends who can support them.

With online delivery services being overwhelmed, there is a need for more support for isolated people, and this service is invaluable during the current situation.

Keep in Touch was formed in the early stages of the outbreak by Cherry Clarke of Refresh; Churches Together in Weymouth and Portland.

Cherry said; “We are really pleased to be able to help the community in this way during these difficult times. We couldn’t do this without our huge army of volunteers; on the other end of the phone for our residents and coming forward as volunteer drivers to help, and I would like to take this opportunity to thank them all. Without them we could not run this scheme.”

Refresh are currently working alongside Weymouth Town Council, and hopefully this will provide a lifeline to those who need help most at this time.

We know many people have questions and queries right now, and we are here to help as best we can. Please get in touch with Austin Property Services if there is anything, we can assist you with.
