Coronavirus action

Parish emergency documents

As we come to the end of the first week of the restrictions introduced to attempt to slow the spread of the Coronavirus, it is pleasing to see such a positive response from the community.

I would like to thank all those who are supporting parishioners who are self-isolating by shopping, collecting prescriptions, caring for pets, etc. The parish council has invoked the Emergency Plan which formalises some the work that has already taken place. In addition, the council is operating under special measures detailed in the High Consequence Infectious Disease Policy to allow decisions to be made without the need for the council to meet face to face.

We are looking at further measures that may assist parishioners. I have been in touch with Lloyds Pharmacy to explore the feasibility of setting up a scheme to allow the collection and delivery of prescriptions for those who are entitled to free health care. If we are able to achieve this, it will reduce the number of parishioners having to travel to Chinnor for prescriptions.

The documents noted above can be found via the menu bar above under Parish Council > Publications.
