Village Vets Formby and Crosby
Here at Village Vets we’ll be continuing to offer our usual services for as long as we can to people who are able to come to us but we are putting contingency measures in place too.
We are currently asking that only one person attend with each pet and make us aware if you are unwell or self-isolating so we can arrange the best way for you to access our services.
We will be offering video or telephone consultations where appropriate as well as home delivery of any medicines or pet food we usually supply to anyone vulnerable and/or self-isolating while we still have all of our team at work and will continue to do so as long as we can.
As a team of relatively healthy young types, currently all still able to work, we would like to additionally offer help and support to anybody vulnerable in the area. Please do reach out to us by telephone or email if there’s anything we can do.

Paws 'n', Claws Formby
In view of our current unprecedented situation, I thought it necessary to write a post explaining our position. After speaking with the team, we are more than happy (for as long as we are allowed) to continue with our dog walking/boarding service. However, we are aware that some of our lovely customers have had or continue to be in vulnerable health situations. With this in mind we want you to know we are all carrying hand sanitizer and we are very conscious of distancing ourselves when collecting and dropping off. With this in mind, we can collect from a designated space, eg, garden, secure porch or utility room, therefore minimising our contact with you.
During our walk, we very rarely come in to close contact with people and we can ensure we avoid all people during this time. On return, we can place your dog back in to the designated space and will use anti bacterial wipes to clean any leads.
I hope this helps and we can continue with as little disruption as possible.
Keep safe everybody.

Parker & Crowther Vets
***** Imporant Information ***** Please Read
To our valued pets and their owners, Parker and Crowther Vets want you to know that we are here to help. We want to offer the best service possible over the challenging weeks/months ahead. Unfortunately, because of the school closures and self-isolation next week, we have no choice but to temporarily close some of our surgeries on certain days. We will notify you by telephone if there will be any necessary changes to your appointment, and apologise in advance for any inconvenience caused. To make appointments or get free advice, please phone the usual branch number (calls will be diverted as needed).
To help with the fight against Covid-19 we are encouraging everyone to practice social distancing. Therefore, we are asking that only one person brings their pet to the appointment, our team are there to assist. If you are in self-isolation and your pet needs us, please call, and a Vet or Nurse will be able to help. We will also be offering telephone and video consultations soon. If you need a repeat prescription please can you give us a week’s notice wherever possible.
Where appropriate, we hope to be able to drop of medicines and pet food to help those in need. Please ask a member of our team. We want to do whatever we can to help the community in this difficult time and ensure everyone keeps safe.
Please allow 72 hours for repeat prescriptions and food orders due to our delivery service reduction.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank you, our lovely clients, for your patience and understanding.

Little Acorns Soft Play and Sensory Centre
❗️Following on from the latest government advice Little Acorns will be closed until further notice ❗️
As a Community Interest Company we have to put the welfare of our staff and customers first and protect all those that we can.
From a business perspective, this is a very worrying time with not much guidance or support currently from the government.
We, like you, will be following the news and advice as it happens and hope to keep you updated on when we will be reopening as soon as we can do.
We are absolutely devastated to be closing and wish we could offer an alternative but the safety of everyone is our priority at this time and morally we feel this is the right direction to take.
We hope you all stay safe and support one another through this really difficult and confusing time.
Love from all the team at Little Acorns x

In light of Covid 19 events we have decided it would be sensible to cancel this weeks talk. Our next talk is in May but that too also looks in doubt and will depend on Government advice nearer the time. I’d be grateful if you could please update the post regarding this weeks talk. Many thanks.

Following the Government Guidance on Covid-19, I have taken the difficult decision to CANCEL the FREE COMMUNITY TAI CHI SESSION that was due to take place at Holy Trinity Church Hall Formby on Friday 27th March.
I feel this decision is in the best interests of all the Tai Chi class participants, and the health and safety of our wider community.
I will reschedule this event at a later date once we get a green light that it is safe to do so.
