A call line has been set up to help those on the north Norfolk coast who are in need of a “friendly voice” during the coronavirus crisis.
Wells Churches Together has set up a call line for anyone living in Wells, between Blakeney and Burnham Market, and its surrounding villages. It is for anyone who needs a friendly voice to talk to.
Alison Bowles, one of the organisers, said: “This is simply for anyone who is feeling fed-up, lonely or just wants a chat.
“This is not a counselling service but just for neighbourly contact down the line. However, referrals for advice can be made on behalf of the caller.”
The call-line is run by a coordinator who then contacts one of the team to ring the caller back.
