Stay apart to keep us all safe, pleads Cat

* Cat Meade, with her young son Connor, has pleaded with people to observe social distancing.

The woman who has spearheaded Llangollen's fightback against coronavirus has made a heartfelt plea for people to observe social distancing.

Immediately the Covid-19 crisis began back in March Cat Meade, whose day job is at Wingett's estate agents in Castle Street, launched the Llangollen Coronavirus Help Group.

Since then she and a team of dedicated volunteers have devoted many unpaid hours to ensuring people isolated in their homes have been supplied with everything from food to daily newspapers.

To finance the organisation and support hard-hit local businesses she has started a series of highly popular daily raffles offering a host of valuable prizes.

There have also be regular updates about the group's work on Facebook.

However, Cat has just taken to social media to put out an urgent plea to local people who she says are not following the Welsh Government's social distancing rules.

Late yesterday she posted: "Social distancing is in place for a reason!

"The amount of kids I have seen out with their mates today is shocking - very close, playing footie, riding bikes, walking side by side.

And she added: "Please do not think they are invincible to this and also could be carriers.

"I know the kids are missing their friends and its hard, but it will much much harder to have your child take this awful virus.

"The R rate has already stopped schools opening over the border in Cheshire.

"Please be responsible and keep your kids and the rest of us in Llan safe."
