Following the Prime Minister’s Coronavirus briefing on 10th May, OPC continues to review its services in light of new guidance to protect its staff, Councillors and members of the public:

The Parish Office remains CLOSED to the public but staff are still working – working from home where possible or maintaining social distancing in the office.  Please email or phone the Parish Office rather than visit in person.
Playgrounds remain CLOSED by order of HM Government but the multi-use-games-area (MUGA) will be opened on 12th May to allow exercise and sports with family members.
Open spaces and allotments are OPEN but residents are reminded to follow the social distancing 2m guidance.
King St toilets will remain OPEN as long as cleaning can be maintained.
The King St Cemetery remains OPEN but please avoid the cemetery if a burial is taking place as there are currently strict rules on burials during the Coronavirus pandemic.

Face-to-face Council meetings will not be held until the government rules on social gatherings are relaxed.  Normal Council meetings are being held via Zoom as permitted by the Coronavirus Act 2020.  Members of the public may attend and  details will be published on each meeting agenda.

Councillors are working hard behind the scenes to provide a local support service to vulnerable residents. We will continue to do our best to provide a local service to residents but ask for your understanding during this challenging time as there will be times when our minimal resources will need to prioritise Coronavirus related work.
