National Lockdown 2021 - Help is available

Here we go again...    it seems we’ll be in a national lockdown for some time, at least until mid-February.

As before the Parish Council is keen to signpost where you can get help.  We’ll continue to update our website with useful sources of information.

How can you HELP?

People have been instructed to stay at home to control the virus, protect the NHS and save lives. Everyone can play their part during the lockdown period, by following advice and staying at home you’re making an important contribution to the national effort. The Parish Council urges everyone to follow the rules to keep you and the West Hill community safe. Stay Safe!
