A leaflet posted through residents’ letterboxes last week is not a scam, according to Reepham Town Council.
The letter, headed “Self-isolating? You are not alone! Reepham is here for you”, which offers support to those residents who need help during the coronavirus outbreak, is genuine – despite containing a London telephone contact number.
Town clerk Jo Boxall explained that this number was the only one that could be diverted to different volunteers’ phones, although she admitted it had caused concern to a number of residents.
The support is being co-ordinated by Reepham Good Neighbour Scheme (RGNS) with backing from the town council and local businesses.
