Statement from Sleaford Town Council amid the Coronavirus concerns

Press Release

In response to the developing situation surrounding Covid-19 Coronavirus, Sleaford Town Council is continually reviewing its operations.

We take our responsibility to our customers health and wellbeing seriously and while working hard to maintain levels of service delivery, fresh assessments are being taken on a daily basis to ensure the welfare of residents, staff and councillors remains paramount.

The Council is open and fully-functioning and most services continue to operate fully – where possible, with extra measures in place to limit the potential for transmission of the virus.

In the interests of public safety, scheduled events such as Sleaford Town Awards and St Georges Day Market have been cancelled.

The Market will continue to be available on Mondays, Fridays and Saturdays as part of the vital supply chain. Following NAMBA advice it is considered that markets are considered safer than retail outlets due to their fresh air atmosphere.

Whilst the Town Hall reception remains open, where possible we encourage residents to find alternative methods of contacting us as face-to-face contact and meetings are limited to those which are essential only.

You can continue to access council services through the reporting on line form via the website at www.sleaford.gov.uk or email enquiries@sleaford.gov.uk or telephone 01529 303456 or message our Facebook page.

Residents are encouraged to follow latest Government advice in light of the developing situation.
