The last few months have been a challenging time for us all in many different ways and this will continue as we adjust to everyday life in the ‘new normal’. I am certainly pleased to see the winding back of some of the COVID-19 restrictions but conscious the threat of COVID-19 is not over. Some of the changes for Council include the reopening of the offices and the library, still of course with personal distancing and hygiene measures in place. You can check the Council’s Facebook page to get a full listing of these changes. We are however still encouraging you to attend to council business on the phone or via our website if possible.
