Coronavirus Update - May 2021

At midnight on 6 May 2021, the Legislation allowing for the Town Council to meet remotely ceased.  The Town Council is now required to return to face-to-face meetings and as such, for the foreseeable future, they will be held in the Public Hall.  The Council has written a Risk  Assessment to ensure the safety of all taking part in these meetings and that document can be viewed here.
