Pangbourne Parish Council is working with churches and charities to organise a local response to the COVID-19 outbreak.
It has called upon members of the community to volunteer in the event residents are forced to self-isolate.
Volunteers will be tasked with aiding elderly and vulnerable residents.
The parish council’s website states: “Pangbourne Parish Council are working with the Churches and the Pangbourne Volunteer Centre to put together a community help network of volunteers.
“With the COVID-19 situation escalating we are keen to expand our network of volunteers within the village who will be able to pick up shopping, post mail, and be available for a friendly phone call, should residents need to self-isolate.”
