During this National lock down OVRA wants to ensure that the elderly and vulnerable in our community are being supported if they need it. We are well aware of and have collected details for many of the local groups of residents who have organised support within their roads or immediate area, and we are trying to establish a network of volunteers for those areas which are not so covered.

If you want to help us ensure that no residents are isolated, please contact us.

If you are isolated and are not supported by family and friends, please contact us.


OVRA's 2020 programme of events has been cancelled/postponed until September.
