A message from Blockley Parish Council:
Supporting Blockley Parish through the COVID-19 pandemic
Dear Blockley Parish resident,
We hope you’re well and adjusting to the lifestyle changes we’ve all had to make recently. As your local council, we’re here to update you with the latest information as circumstances change, which they certainly have done in the few weeks since our last message.
Firstly, a big thanks to everyone who has come forward to volunteer, and those who are helping in other ways to support the parish through this pandemic. It’s fair to say that our community has never felt stronger, and if there is a silver lining to all this, it’s realising the truth that adversity brings out the best in us.
By staying calm, working together and looking out for each other, we can keep everyday life running as normally as possible and help everyone readjust, for however long that may be until circumstances change.
If you need help please use the contact details on this page to get all the supplies and support you need. Rest assured we are reviewing our processes all the time and will keep you in touch with any relevant updates.
All the best, and stay safe
Blockley Parish Council
