Looking Forward to Coming Back!
Lock Down is easing. This is important. For jobs and things to do. For mental and physical health - and the health of our local economy!
Your Lib Dem led Council is deeply involved in those 'Covid Secure' discussions.
To make sure returning to shop, explore and eventually to eat and drink and meet up, is safe and enjoyable.
Great progress has been made, with partners to help those in need, the 'shielded' and the vulnerable and to help businesses and jobs return after the crisis!
Over £30M in business grants has been provided, helping thousands of employees and customers. Now we have secured a further £1.7M for Council discretionary grants of up to £10,000 to help those businesses who 'fell between the cracks' and those they employ. This is great news for a great and vibrant town - that will return to a new normal slowly - starting 15 June.
It will take time for every store to open but be confident that our Lib Dem led Council partnerships will help them revive and open safely, keeping the best of recent times, to make it easier to walk and cycle, and keep that cleaner air!
Play your part. Help us help others. Take care. Enjoy every step towards more usual times.
