Face Masks

More and more people are using face masks when out in the public, because of Covid-19. They are compulsory on public transport and required if you enter a Doctor’s Surgery or Hospital. There are various means of acquiring them and prices are not as crazy as they were a few week’s ago.

In the area where Nick (our Service Co-ordinator) lives, there is a ‘Cobra Community Group’ made up of volunteers. They provide a range of Covid-19 related services for the vulnerable, from shopping to collecting prescriptions, etc  Their latest initiative is to make and sell a range of hand sewn faces in varied sizes – adult, male, female, child and in some funky materials. They are on sale on ‘mask trees’. One is outside a house on Bashurst Hill, Itchingfield, another outside a residence in Barns Green in Two Mile Ash Road, decorating a well.

A pop up one will start on 29th June at Westons Farm Shop,  Weston’s Hill, Itchingfield, Horsham, RH13 0NT. The shop has proved hugely popular during the lockdown for fruit, veg, meat, bread and other daily essentials. A wide variety of masks will be on sale in baskets by the tills. Proceeds from the sales, after production costs are taken out, are being shared amongst local good causes. WSMS has kindly been nominated to be a beneficiary. There is a suggested donation of £3 per mask. Most are very unique. Grab yourself the latest ‘must have’ accessory, and help keep yourself and others safe.
