A MESSAGE IN A TROUBLED TIME

Clun Town Council with Chapel Lawn are not in a position to meet in the normal way during the current COVID-19 emergency.  However we are able to communicate as a Council using video conferencing facilities but currently cannot make any formal decisions this way.  We are awaiting guidance on whether the Government will relax the rules and so enable that to happen.  

Neverthelessless we are continuing to work on behalf of all residents of our Parish.  We have been in close liaison with the Good Neighbours initiative Tel 01588 640016.  Do make sure you contact them if you need support in any way.  The Council and Good Neighbours are also in close contact with the national support initiative for residents who may be shielding, which is being managed in this area by Shropshire Council.  We are also in regular contact with Nigel Hartin to ensure we are fully briefed. Additionally we will continue to meet, using video technology, with Shropshire Council on progressing the traffic plan, and have had our first successful such meeting.

We would especially like to thank all residents and Businesses in the Parish who are working hard to ensure they comply with the directions we all have had from the Government.  We need to recognise that in our locality we have a higher than average proportion of the population who are in the vulnerable or extremely vulnerable groups.  So the need to ensure that the virus doesn’t arrive here or if it sadly does  arrive, it is even more important that we avoid  it spreading. 

The council will be considering if there are other ways we can support the Parish, and looking forward at how we can all work together to ensure the economy of the area gets back on its feet as soon as possible afterwards.  In the mean time look out for one another, support the businesses that are allowed to trade in any way in the Town  as much as you can.  Buying locally also reduces any unnecessary journeys.  

Do let us know if the current emergency is creating any particular concern to you and if we can we will help or guide you on who to contact.  

In the mean time we do hope you stay safe and well and remember:

You can only leave your home:

• To shop for basic essentials, and only when you really need to

• To do one form of exercise a day – such as a run, walk or cycle, alone or with other people you live with

• For any medical need – for example, to visit a pharmacy or deliver essential supplies to a vulnerable person

• To travel to and from work – but only where this is absolutely necessary

As a community, we are all anxious about the impact of the COVID-19 virus, and how it may affect us all.

Everyone's priority must firstly be protecting one another from spreading it.

Support is available through the Good Neighbours Scheme. Some information is attachd below.

We must apologise, but there was an issue with the recording of the February meeting, which meant the sound was inaudible. A new piece of recording equipment will be purchased for future use.
