South Molton Corona Community GroupThis group is for those who are in isolation or finding it difficult to walk their dogs, access food, medication or other essentials and for those who feel able to help those in need during this crisis.

One South Molton website gives a list of all support available in South Molton.

South Molton Medical Centre - The clinics and other services offered by the doctors’ surgery have a website you can visit for NHS and Public Health England updates.

South Molton Volunteer Car Service - a volunteer car service providing door to door transport to hospital/medical, optician, dental and chiropody appointments in South Molton, Barnstaple, Exeter, Plymouth and further afield if required. They cover South Molton and the surrounding communities and there is a small mileage charge of 45 pence per mile plus £1 admin charge. Telephone 01769 573167, leave your name and telephone number on their answering machine and a volunteer will contact you to help you with transport.

The Barnstaple Memory Café - The Memory Café supports people living with dementia and their carers and loved ones. It normally meets on the first and third Friday of the month at the Library but the lockdown has seen it change into a twice monthly friendly phone call to members. The are looking to reopen the Barnstaple Memory Cafe at Barnstaple Library with effect from Friday 2nd October.  This will then happen on the first Friday of every month (subject to government guidance).

They have a Facebook group where members can keep in touch with each other and share pictures and stories.
