Covid-19 Corona Virus

Although the parish council office is closed we continue to work with our City Councillors, Wardens and Highways Steward. The Parish clerk will continue answering emails and responding to phone messages. We would also like to thank all the councillors, volunteers and all the NHS and Social Care staff who continue to work so hard at this difficult time.

Residents are reminded that they should not congregate, use play areas or meet up with anyone other than those in their household. Please look after your neighbours and don’t go out unless it is absolutely necessary and if you do, keep to the 2mtr/6ft distance. This is the only way we can hope to reduce the impact of this pandemic, on our NHS.
