Covid-19 Update (July 2020)

Coleford Town Council


Covid-19 Update (July 2020)

Whilst there are hopeful signs that the covid virus is diminishing, with less cases being confirmed, there is still high risk, and ‘social distancing’ rules should still be applied, and respected.

It is encouraging that communities are beginning to take steps forward to re-establish some level of normality, although we must asll still take account of Government advice, to prevent any resurgence, and second wave of cases, etc.

In turn we also recognise that some parishioners, will still be isolated, and not able to leave their homes, and the Town Council therefore continues to be active, as a ‘Community Hub’, particularly still serving the more isolated, vulnerable residents of the area, especially in respect of prescription, and grocery deliveries, as well as other more specific needs, and errands, etc.

Councillors and staff seek to do all that we can to help, wherever possible, in this continuing, and challenging situation. Also still working with a greatly valued, team of volunteers, who we owe such appreciation to and, just being available, even not used – as yet, has been no less valued. A true testimony to a Community ‘pulling together’.

The well-being, safety and security of all parishioners and visitors, remains paramount, and our main office is now fully re-established, and open to the public. Office Hours:09.30 am – 4.00pm Monday to Friday

The main office has been risk assessed for staff to work safely, with clear protocols, and procedures, in place, regarding ‘social distancing’, for visitors attending the office also.
