Our Town Update

Yesterday the leader of the council published a five-point plan outlining the council’s response to Covid-19.

He said although we didn’t envisage being in this situation, he knows the borough will pull together and our sense of pride and cooperation can be relied upon.

As a result of current government advice we will be postponing the up and coming Our Town cleaner greener works and Marketplace events which were due to roll out across high streets in the borough in the coming months. Similarly the Our Town events fund application process has been temporarily suspended. We will be in touch all applicants directly and will update you as and when we have further information regarding the fund.

The Our Town Writing and Photography competitions remain open and you can still nominate a superstar neighbour who goes above and beyond for the Our Town Awards. Now is the perfect time to say thank you and give someone well deserved recognition.

There is an amazing sense of community spirit in our borough and the response from organisations, volunteers and people wanting to help has already been incredible.

You might have seen we’ve recently launched the #BeKind movement and you can find out more about it on our website.

Please see attached Resident briefing.
