COVID-19 coronavirus is having an immeasurable effect on daily life and we are all having to reassess our activities and adjust as necessary. Here’s my current thinking regarding RG10 magazine, which is in line with many other small independent publishers.
I feel it is important to continue publishing the magazine, as long as it is safe and viable to do so. RG10 is well positioned to collate and disseminate information and advice about local support to residents, especially those vulnerable members of our community in isolation at home, and parents coping with the closure of schools. RG10 also plays an essential role helping many small businesses market their services across the area, and now more than ever we need to all pull together and support each other.
Our publication is delivered through letterboxes by a valued team of local residents who I hope will confirm their continued involvement after reviewing new guidelines that will be communicated to them shortly. I value their contribution immensely and take their safety very seriously. I am therefore monitoring advice from Public Health England and any change in practice by Royal Mail for their postal workers.
Therefore I am still planning to issue the May/Jun edition of RG10 magazine at the end of April, which will of course include information and support relating to the coronavirus situation. In the meantime I will do what I can to share information via social media, blog and newsletter.
Stay well everyone.
