Community Response team

The Covid-19 Deanshanger Community Response Project (CRP)

Deanshanger Parish Council has established a Community Response Team (CRT) to coordinate parish-wide community support during the Covid-19 emergency. The team has set up a project to link up those who have volunteered to provide support with those who have need and have requested support.

Those needing support may include residents who are vulnerable, self-isolating, key-workers or those who are suffering from the Covid-19 virus. The types of support that can be provided include grocery shopping, collecting medication, posting mail and telephone calls to someone who is feeling isolated. The project will not provide advice or information on health care issues nor is it intended to pass on information being issued from Government or Public Health England. Where a resident needs and has requested support, the team will allocate a volunteer.

Referral to the Project

If residents in the Parish need support to deal with the impact of the Covid-19 emergency or if anyone would like to volunteer to support the project, they should contact


Telephone: 01908 566373

Or they can complete and return the form that has been put through their door.

89 Bus- During Coronavirus

Posted: Fri, 20 Mar 2020 14:14 by Teresa Floyd

Dear all

I know several of the local parishes are co-ordinating volunteer groups to help vulnerable people who are self-isolating.

We know that many, if not most, of our passengers on the 89 bus are classed as vulnerable and as such are self-isolating at the moment. For that reason we have decided to temporarily allow anyone who is shopping on behalf of a pass holder to travel free of charge on the 89, provided they bring the pass and a letter from the pass holder confirming they are acting for them. More »

We have made both Milton Keynes and Northamptonshire councils aware of this and they are in agreement. However, it is entirely our own choice and not funded by them. I'm not sure if this is going to be of practical help to anyone, but the offer's there if it does; naturally we will have to review this if it is abused by some.

Also, to confirm that we are currently expecting to keep the 89 running throughout this troublesome period, though it is quite possible that we may have to delete one journey in the afternoon in order to make it possible for one driver to drive for the whole day, rather than two as at present.

We are taking a decision on the 86 and 90 next week.

If the situation becomes very bad- as it might- and it becomes impossible to keep a full service running then we will be looking at some sort of demand-responsive service to cover the area of the 86, 89 and 90. We will do absolutely everything we can to avoid anyone being completely isolated.

Please feel free to let me know if there's anything else we can do to help.

Many thanks
