One Point of Contact
"We are in unprecedented times and your Area Board, the Town and Parish councils across the community area are working together to support our community.
We have been overwhelmed by the community response to the challenges of Covid-19, and number of volunteers who have pledged their time and support to help those in need. As local councils we are working on a co-ordinated response to make sure that those who need support receive it and we maximise the effectiveness of our volunteers, whilst at the same time ensuring our most vulnerable and isolated residents are safe.
Please look out for our information leaflet which will be delivered next week with the Melksham Independent News. It contains details of the dedicated advice and support telephone number, email address and website which will be going live this week.
There will be regular updates on the councils’ websites and social media accounts.
Finally, we would like to say a huge thank you to those who have already taken the initiative and set yourselves up as community organisers and so that the community effort continues in all circumstances we are urging you to share with us your database of volunteers so they are all in one central point.
With our grateful thanks,"
