Covid-19 (Coronavirus) Latest News
The Town Council has suspended its normal meeting schedule for the immediate future and has delegated powers to key members/staff to continue its functions. We will be posting regular updates on our website, as further information becomes available. In the meantime, please refer to the following sources of advice/information:
1. County Council Services
The County Council will be posting regular (daily) updates on its website. This will give details of any of its services which are affected by the virus and will be available on the news page at: http://www.conwy.gov.uk/en/Spotlight/Press-Releases/Press-Releases.aspx
2. Public Health Wales
If you have any concerns about the health of yourself or any members of your family, please refer to the advice and information on the Public Health Wales website:
3. Local Information/Support
We are in the process of compiling a list of local shops/pharmacies etc that can accept orders and payment remotely and arrange delivery. These will be added to this site over the coming days so please come back here to check regularly.
The Local Authority is the point of contact for anyone requiring additional support, due to self-isolation. Contact details will be posted here once they are available.
4. Local Volunteers
Should you wish to volunteer to help out in your local community, there are several ways you can get involved:
a) By delivering a postcard to the properties in your street offering support to those who may be self-isolating. If you are not able to print these yourself, please contact the Town Hall on 01492 532248 and we will assist, where possible.
b) We will share details in the coming days of the local shops offering home delivery services and let you know if any are looking for volunteers.
c) By contacting one of the voluntary support groups active in your local area. Further information and contact details will be posted here in due course.
Note: If you are involved in organising a local action group and you would like to be included, then please contact us with details.
(d) Conwy County Borough Council have established a Single Point of Contact (SPOC) within the Authority so that the most vulnerable individuals within our communities are able to call a single number with any concerns re shopping, picking up medical supplies etc.
If you are able to assist, please provide the Town Council with the following details to be added to the County Borough Council’s list of volunteers:
• Phone number
• Availability – When convenient or not?
• Further details; Car? How far willing to travel? Any other information.
As and when more information is available about the type of additional support needed, we will update this section.
5. Other Assistance
Should you need any further support or advice, please contact the Town Hall on 01492 532248 or one of your local councillors:
