Easing Lockdown

Thanks to the devotion and care of our frontline workers, and the sensible measures by local residents, the first steps in easing the lockdown are now being introduced. If we see the virus numbers reduce, we can relax more measures. If matters deteriorate, we will have to lock-down to stay safe. This means adding a little more risk but it is vital that we protect your wellbeing, general health and liberty in addition to protecting you from the Coronavirus. With common-sense, we can get through this and return to happier days.
