In light of the recent Covid lockdown in January, we have taken a number of steps in line with Government guidelines to protect our staff, Councillors and members of the public.

Council staff are now working from home but will be responding to emails as normal.  We will also be visiting the office to collect mail and pick up answerphone messages but please email if your enquiry requires a prompt response.

The majority of Council owned facilities remain open to give residents the opportunity to still enjoy and exercise outdoors.  The playgrounds remain open and are regularly inspected but not sanitised.  However, the multi-use-games-area at the Recreation Ground has been closed in line with Government  instructions.  The public toilets in King Street remain open and are cleaned Monday-Friday.

All users of Parish Council facilities are reminded to follow Government guidance on maintaining 2m social distancing, limiting the number of people congregating in one place and regular hand washing.

Face-to-face Council meetings have not taken place since March and will not resume until government rules on social gatherings are relaxed.  A lawful Parish Council meeting must be open for every resident to attend and, for this reason, OPC will continue to hold virtual Council meetings until further notice.  Members of the public can also join virtual meetings by following the link published on each meeting agenda.

Councillors are ready to re-start a prescription and hearing aid delivery and we are in regular communication with Lloyds chemist to step as soon as Lloyds indicate they need support.
