Lightwater Resilience Plan

The Lightwater Resilience Plan is organised  by Windsor Rackham of Lightwater Live and Windlesham Parish Councillor Katia Malcaus Cooper. Through a network of volunteers from the village we aim to assist those isolated and self isolating due to the Coronavirus or other conditions.

What we are doing

We have split Lightwater into 22 zones and assigned volunteers to each zone. The Lightwater Resilience Plan will be the first port of call for residents in that area and we aim to provide essential services to those isolated or self isolating. This is a Community Led project responding to the Coronavirus crisis.
