Following the prime minister’s announcement, we wanted to reiterate the importance of following the new rules on staying at home and away from others. This guidance impacts on all of us and there are additional needs to self-isolate or shield from contact depending on your situation.
It essential that we all follow these rules to slow the pandemic and to support our NHS. Both NALC and the Society of Local Council Clerks (SLCC) are asking local councils to stop holding any physical meetings or gatherings during this time. This includes full council, committee meetings, annual parish or council meetings. These are extraordinary times, and they call for extraordinary measures.
The health and safety of the local community is our first concern and we look forward to meeting with you again soon.
In the meantime, should you have any Parish Council related enquiries, I am always available by email firstname.lastname@example.org, or you can leave a message on my answerphone 01258 880383 and I will call you back.
