Residents booklet: Helping you through the COVID-19 Pandemic

Message from Cllr Elizabeth Campbell

Leader of the Council

Tuesday 7 April 2020

These are extraordinary times we find ourselves in as we face the biggest national crisis of a generation.

I know these are anxious and uncertain days for many of our residents and businesses and we are doing all that we can to support you through this pandemic.

I’m really pleased that our residents are listening to government advice and are staying home and staying safe.

To the many local voluntary and community groups who are playing their part in the community, to our NHS staff who are working tirelessly to tend to the sick, to the volunteers who have given their time for free and to local people who are helping neighbours with shopping and medical supplies, I want to say thank you. By working together we will ensure our borough comes through these extremely worrying times.

In this leaflet you’ll find information on how we too are supporting residents and businesses.

We have set up a Covid-19 hub to support our clinically vulnerable residents to ensure they have access to food and essential medical supplies and you can read more about that in this leaflet.

I want to assure you that the Council, alongside the NHS, government and of course our exceptional community groups and volunteers, is working tirelessly to ensure services adapt to changing regulations, and that residents are informed and supported.
