What is the Council doing during the Pandemic?

What is the Parish Council doing during Covid 19?

The Council is still open for business despite the Sports Centre being closed during the Pandemic. Council Officers are continuing to work from home to ensure that the Council is still operating albeit at a reduced level.

The Full Parish Council are unable to meet in person at the moment due to social distancing regulations. There are plans to hold a Full Council meeting using Zoom in the near future. A public link to this meeting will be available on the published agenda.

As well as Officers still working, some of you may have noticed the Parish Handyperson going about his business in the village. He is helping out Killamarsh Pharmacy, on behalf of the Council, delivering prescription medications to the most vulnerable in our village who are unable to leave their homes. The Pharmacist is very grateful for his services and we have seen some lovely messages of thanks from residents too.

The rest of the staff who work within the Sports Centre and Parish Pump are currently furloughed and the Council will be putting in a claim to the Government to receive the 80% salary rebate for these staff. We hope that they are all staying safe and sane at home during the pandemic.

The Council have already taken advantage of the Business rates relief scheme which will mean that £117,760 of our budget can be used in other areas to help the Council get back on its feet once restrictions are lifted.

The Council are aware of the wonderful community spirit that has evolved during this crisis. There may still be quite a way to go until we are all able to get back to "normal".

Remember, the parish council is here for you on their usual phone number and email.
