A NEW Facebook group created in response to the COVID-19 pandemic encourages Bass Coast residents to combat social isolation by getting to know their neighbours online.

‘The Bass Coast Connection,’ founded by new Dalyston resident Faith Stanes in early April, aims to forge meaningful connections between locals during COVID-19 and beyond, with members invited to introduce themselves online for the time being, and plans for face to face meet ups when health regulations allow.

To join in, go to facebook.com/groups/thebasscoastconnection.
