Our apologies – an advert for the post of Activities Assistant was advertised, briefly, yesterday. The post was scheduled 2 weeks ago before the Coronavirus situation escalated; Solva Care subsequently decided to postpone the appointment. Watch this space as it will be re-advertised in the coming months.
Everyone myst stay at home to help stop the spread of coronavirus.
You should only leave the house for 1 of 4 reasons:
- shopping for basic necessities, for example food and medicine, which must be as infrequent as possible
- one form of exercise a day, for example a run, walk, or cycle – alone or with members of your household
- any medical need, or to provide care or to help a vulnerable person
- travelling to and from work, but only where this absolutely cannot be done from home
These 4 reasons are exceptions – even when doing these activities, you should be minimising time spent outside of the home and ensuring you are 2 metres (6ft) apart from anyone outside of your household.
You can spread the virus even if you don’t have symptoms.
Bay View Stores will be closing from 5pm from today and will be open daily from 7am – 5pm. This is so the staff can focus on deliveries to the community. If you could like a delivery, message them on Facebook or call on 01437 729554.
Solva Care understands that this is a worrying time for you and your families. We have suspended our regular activities and events, although – with Solva Community Council – are co-ordinating volunteers to help with shopping, delivering food, dog walking or picking up prescriptions. If you could help with this, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call Lena on 07805 717556, and if you would like some assistance to cope with staying home, let Lena know too.
In order minimise footfall and therefore reduce the risk of transmission, Solva Surgery has decided to keep their door locked and patients are asked to ring the doorbell. Anyone wishing to collect a prescription are asked to do so between the hours of 10.00am – 12.00pm and 2.00pm – 4.00pm.

We have started a community blog where we can all share positive stories about what we are doing over the next few months, when many of us are stuck at home. The idea is to spread the word about things we can do from home, be it baking, reading, learning a new language, watching a musical online or trying out a new recipe!
There will be different sections, such as keeping active (exercises), keeping busy (books, quizzes, films etc), a kids’ corner along with poems and stories BY YOU. Anyone can contribute by emailing their suggestions, photos, links and other ideas to email@example.com The only rule is that it should be uplifting.
Who knows this could become a historical document as we live in unprecedented times! Just follow the link and please spread the word.
Pleased to hear the ripple of applause across Solva this evening. Thank you from everyone.
Information on Solva Surgery arrangements during the Coronavirus. Prescriptions can only be collected between 10am-12 noon and 2-4pm. If you would like your prescription collected and dropped off to you, Lena is co-ordinating volunteers who can do so, and is on 07805 717556.

Please see the message from Gwyn of Bay View Stores:
Based on the most recent government advice we will now limit the number of customers INSIDE the shop to 2 at any one time. This is for the safety of you and our amazing staff. Please space yourself outside the shop and you’ll be invited in. (I hope you’ll understand why we are doing this)
For the safety of others and our staff we would encourage you to place you orders for delivery, simply message us or call us on 01437 729554 and we will get the order to you as soon as we can.
Thank you again for your support and let’s all work together to help those who need it. We may look at closing a little earlier going forward to help us out so keep an eye out on here for updates.
