The Parish Council met on 23rd March and followed good practice guidelines regarding social spacing at meetings. However, this is likely to be the last formal meeting for a few months, due to the current health crisis and the most recent advice received from the Government.
You will all be aware that a Community Group of volunteers has already been formed within the village to offer help to the elderly, vulnerable or key workers, to assist with essential food shopping and the collection and delivery of medical prescriptions, therefore the Council did not wish to duplicate their work. All Parishioners have received a leaflet with outline details of what the Community Group is able to offer, including preferred contact numbers for the volunteers.
The Parish Council will continue to monitor national and local advice and will regularly post this information on its website and the Parish noticeboard. In addition, the Council is already making arrangements to meet remotely, using internet-based facilities and any decisions made during these meetings will be communicated to Parishioners, by these methods.
Whilst it is vitally important for all residents to adhere to the instructions of the Government, if anyone is aware of a neighbour or resident who is in need of assistance, please do not hesitate to pass on their details to the Community Group or any member of the Parish Council. Contact details of all Councillors are listed below and in the latest Newsletter.
Please remember that this health crisis will not last indefinitely, but whilst it is prevalent, we should all remain vigilant and follow Government advice, as closely as possible.
In the meantime, please look out for each other and keep well.
With best regards
Everdon Parish Council 23rd March 2020
