Walsham le Willows Parish Council

Coronavirus Support

The Parish Council is maintaining confidential registers of vulnerable people and of volunteers and matching these when asked to do so.  The information collected to facilitate this is shared appropriately but with due regard to data protection law.

The aim is to ensure that no-one in the village is left alone without support as evolving government advice (or orders) are put into practice. Priority may have to be given to those older people who are living alone (or elderly couples) without nearby family support.   Some volunteers, due to their own vulnerabilities and need to self-isolate, are not able to shop or collect prescriptions but have offered to keep in touch with people by telephone. So please do ask if you would like someone to support you in that way, particularly if you are living alone.

Please contact the Parish Clerk (preferably by email) to advise any of the following:

  • If you need support
  • If you know someone who needs support
  • If you are willing to volunteer to support someone
  • If you are already supporting someone
  • If you and/or family are already self-isolating due to illness

 

For the duration of the Coronavirus lockdown, Parish Council meetings are being held online at the usual time by means of the Zoom conferencing app. You can join the online meeting to observe and you can make a representation to the Council in the usual way.

The link for the next meeting can be found on the village website at: https://www.walsham-le-willows.org/parish-council-meetings-during-lockdown/

 
General Details

The Parish Council is a tier of government as defined in law with particular statutory responsibilities and duties and its members are elected by public vote.

A Public Open Forum is held when the Chair allows 5 minute representations from members of the public to the Parish Council. Parish Councillors will often engage with representations in the same meeting but are not required to respond immediatley in any way.  This is to ensure that Councillor's have time to make a considered response.
