Like other parish council's the measures required to manage the virus have impacted all areas of their community. As a council, we are established under law and have regulations on how we run, report on our activities and have responsibilities. Much of this goes back to, or is based on the formation of parish councils in 1894!
Our buildings at the Brimp (Youth Centre) and Cross Park Pavilion are looking to re-open over the next month. The Play Equipment at the Recreation Ground is available for use, but care should be taken to ensure social distancing and high levels of hygiene (wash hands thoroughly before and after use). Volunteer activities carried out by Cllr Trevor Bowley and Jan continue (please keep a safe distance from our workers and volunteers to avoid any spread of the virus).
Meetings will return to face to face after June 27th (as there has been no extension by the Government to allow remote (ZOOM) meetings, the June meeting will be cancelled and the next is planned for July 14th at Cross Park).
