The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted every aspect of our lives, but one thing that never changes is the remarkable way the Merton community pull together when people are in need. From delivering food parcels to neighbours, to supporting older and vulnerable people, to donating to local charities, Merton residents are showing why our borough is such a great place to live.
