COVID 19

In consideration of the Covid 19 situation, and government advice, the Emersons Green Town Council Offices will be closed to members of the public with immediate effect.

The post box will be checked periodically and phones will still be covered.

The best method of communication is by email; clerk@emersonsgreen-tc.gov.uk.

We hope that residents stay safe and well during these unusual and difficult times.

 

ALLOTMENTS

Please see guidance from the National Allotment Society on attending allotments.

Current guidance is that attending allotments counts as ‘exercise’. Allotment holders can continue to attend their plots, as long as they are not self isolating or have a member of the family who is ill. Allotment holders should also maintain the 2m distance from others.
