As we are all aware the coronavirus is a very serious risk to those aged over 70 and those in this age group must remain in self-isolation at home in accordance with UK Government guidelines. For those in Glyntraian and in self-isolation without family or friends to help, ‘Helping Hands’ volunteers will be able to assist with delivering groceries and prescriptions. If you are a Glyntraian resident and have no access to family and friends for support, please contact Davena Davies (Community Agent) on 07870 337091, or Stephanie Masters (Clerk to Glyntraian Community Council) on 07535 733418.
Mandy and Phil at the Pontfadog Post Office are taking orders and are doing their best to meet these. They will advise about payment at the time the order is placed.
You can order groceries from Stans (St Martins) over the phone (01691 772348) and pay for these with your debit card. Each week orders must be placed by Tuesday and will be ready for collection on Thursday. When calling to order groceries you must state you are a Ceiriog Valley resident. If you are a Glyntraian resident and aged over 70 or self-isolating with no access to family and friends for support, ‘Helping Hands’ volunteers will be able to collect and deliver your order to you. Once you have placed your order with Stans you must inform us that you have ordered groceries that require collection by calling Stephanie Masters (Clerk to Glyntraian Community Council) on 07535 733418.
The Glyn Ceiriog Doctors’ surgery is now closed. If you need a repeat prescription, you can take it to the pharmacy in Glyn Ceiriog and it will be sent to Llangollen Health Centre where your request will be dealt with. Alternatively, you can call to arrange a prescription by phoning the doctors surgery in Llangollen (01978 860625). Any prescriptions will come back to the pharmacy in Glyn Ceiriog for collection. Allow 3 days for this process. For those aged over 70 years and/or become ill in self-isolation ‘Helping Hands’ volunteers will be able to collect and deliver these to you.
The Chirk Doctors’ surgery is also closed to walk-in patients. However, if you take your prescription and post it in the repeat prescriptions post box near the front entrance of the surgery it will be processed.
