Despite the Covid-19 crisis, we are continuing to provide core services whilst observing government guidelines. This includes managing the dog bins, ensuring our allotments are open (whilst providing guidance to allotment tenants), and carrying out maintenance work throughout our parish. 

The Town Council is working to co-ordinate and deliver support to our residents. Our team helped to deliver emergency food packs to the community and we are continuing to provide a Food Bank Xtra collection point at Spotlight. We also continue to support other essential services which are helping our community.

We are continuing as many services as possible at this time. If you have an inquiry, please ring our office on 01908 649 469.

We have also created pages on our website where there is information about local organisations and charities and the support that they can offer our residents at this difficult time. There is also a page of suggested activities for all ages, which you can complete at home.

The Community Larder is a membership programme where anyone can buy their shopping for a little as £3.50 per week and help reduce perfectly good food going needlessly to landfill.
