Agenda For Next Meeting
Minutes Of Previous Meetings
Welcome to the Theberton & Eastbridge Parish Council
In accordance with government guidelines all Parish Council meetings have been postponed until further notice. The Parish Council is still operational therefore please contact the Clerk or the Chairman if you have any queries or concerns.
All communities will be impacted by this virus and as time goes on it is likely that further measures will be recommended by the Government to help reduce the spread of the virus and protect lives, particularly of those most vulnerable.
This is the time for the Theberton and Eastbridge community to come together in mutual support ensuring in particular that food and medicines can be sourced for those self-isolating who have no other means at their disposal.
If you need help in any way to get you through this difficult period please do not hesitate to contact the Chairman, Councillors or Clerk of the Parish Council, details as set out below, who will do their best to meet your needs. Of course, they may be self-isolating themselves but they will know someone else trusted to assist.
To help the community through this difficult period assistance will be needed from those less affected.
If you are able to volunteer even in a small way to support others less able then please contact the Chairman, Councillors or the Parish Clerk.
By taking the Government’s advice that is developing daily and looking out for others we will hopefully all weather this particular storm and come out at the end a much more cohesive community.
