Why do I need to wait for the COVID-19 Vaccine? 

Updated 05/01/2021

We are all in unprecedented times and we’re all trying to do our best for everyone as we tackle the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Councillors initially met on Tuesday 17th March to discuss their plans to tackle the coronavirus and the impact it will have on the provision of services during the current outbreak. As the situation is changing daily, please refer to this web page regularly for up to date information. The Prime Minister has announced a further lockdown starting from Tuesday 5th January.
