We can all help control the virus if we all stay alert. This means you must:
- Stay at home as much as possible
- Work from home if you can
- Limit contact with other people
- Keep your distance if you go out (2 meters apart where possible)
- Wash your hands regularly
Self-isolate if you or anyone in your household has symptoms.
“As we head into this extended period of lockdown, I want to once again thank everyone in our community who is helping those who are in need. Of course it goes without saying that huge thanks go to those who are working and helping continue to provide essential services in Crowborough. The frontline NHS workers, GP’s, pharmacies, care home workers, supermarkets, smaller grocery stores, petrol stations, takeaways and delivery drivers, you are doing an amazing job for all of us. And a special thanks to the team at the Crowborough Hospital and Birthing Centre for continuing to work through this crisis.
Over the past few weeks I’ve been overwhelmed by the support residents have been offering to their neighbours. I follow closely what is happening on social media and it’s testament to the good nature of the residents of Crowborough that hundreds of volunteers have come forward to offer help to those who cannot leave their homes. You’re doing an amazing job, please keep it up and continue to help wherever you can. The longer this continues the more that people will need help, especially the elderly and most vulnerable in our community.
The Town Council continues to operate as fully as possible, although remotely from home. The Town Hall Offices at Pine Grove are closed, and currently no Town Council meetings are taking place. If you do have any problems or just need to be directed to someone that can help, then our phone lines are open and emails are being responded to. There is also a wealth of information on our website which is regularly updated.
It’s heartbreaking to know that we have lost residents of our community to this terrible virus and it’s likely we will lose more in the weeks to come. Words cannot express how sad I am for their loss, and my thoughts and prayers go out to their family and friends at this awful time.
It’s more important now than even that we continue to follow the government’s advice on social distancing, be under no illusion that somehow we in Crowborough are protected, the virus is in our community and taking lives, stay home as much as possible and continue to help stop the spread.“
Councillor Greg Rose
Mayor of Crowborough
