Today I had my hair cut,
After many lockdown days,
I’ve put on lots of pictures,
Had it styled in many ways.


I’ve missed a few appointments,
And trimmed my fringe myself,
It was a little wonky,
At this I don’t excel.


I used to wear it shorter,
But it’s grown a lot since then,
I cut off all the straggly bits,
And they went in the bin.


I’m sat here now and looking,
What a great job she has done,
But for now I hope, we stay like this,
Not right back to square one! ✂️

Avoid Coronavirus Scams


Be careful who comes to your door, all Andover Neighbourcare helpers are CRB checked and should have identification.


Scammers are taking advantage of fears surrounding the Coronavirus.

Thieves offering to shop for elderly but keeping money


People have been preying on the vulnerable as they stay at home and self-isolate.


Online scammers target vulnerable Internet users during coronavirus outbreak Common types of coronavirus scams

We have received reports of:

  • phishing emails and phone calls impersonating entities. These include the World Health Organisation, government authorities, people confirmed to have the coronavirus, and legitimate businesses such as travel agents and telecommunications companies

  • people receiving misinformation about the coronavirus, being sent by text, social media and email

  • products claiming to be a vaccine or cure for the coronavirus

  • investment scams claiming coronavirus has created opportunities.

Protect yourself

  • Be aware of fraudulent emails claiming to be from experts saying that they have information about the virus. For the most up-to-date information about the coronavirus, visit the Department of Health and the World Health Organization (WHO).

  • Be careful of fake online shopping sites requesting unusual payment methods such as upfront payment via money order, wire transfer, international funds transfer, preloaded card or electronic currency, like Bitcoin. Information is available at:

Wash your hands frequently

Regularly and thoroughly clean your hands with an alcohol-based hand rub or wash them with soap and water.

Why? Washing your hands with soap and water or using alcohol-based hand rub kills viruses that may be on your hands.


Maintain social distancing

Maintain at least 1 metre (3 feet) distance between yourself and anyone who is coughing or sneezing.

Why? When someone coughs or sneezes they spray small liquid droplets from their nose or mouth which may contain virus. If you are too close, you can breathe in the droplets, including the COVID-19 virus if the person coughing has the disease.


Avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth

Why? Hands touch many surfaces and can pick up viruses. Once contaminated, hands can transfer the virus to your eyes, nose or mouth. From there, the virus can enter your body and can make you sick.


Practice respiratory hygiene

Make sure you, and the people around you, follow good respiratory hygiene. This means covering your mouth and nose with your bent elbow or tissue when you cough or sneeze. Then dispose of the used tissue immediately.

Why? Droplets spread virus. By following good respiratory hygiene you protect the people around you from viruses such as cold, flu and COVID-19.


If you have fever, cough and difficulty breathing, seek medical care early

Stay home if you feel unwell. If you have a fever, cough and difficulty breathing, seek medical attention and call in advance. Follow the directions of your local health authority.

Why? National and local authorities will have the most up to date information on the situation in your area. Calling in advance will allow your health care provider to quickly direct you to the right health facility. This will also protect you and help prevent spread of viruses and other infections.


Stay informed and follow advice given by your healthcare provider

Stay informed on the latest developments about COVID-19. Follow advice given by your healthcare provider, your national and local public health authority or your employer on how to protect yourself and others from COVID-19.

Why? National and local authorities will have the most up to date information on whether COVID-19 is spreading in your area. They are best placed to advise on what people in your area should be doing to protect themselves.
