    • Providing normal public services
      Here is a message from the Mayor of Polegate Town Council, Councillor David Watts about the Council’s response to the need to limit the spread of Coronavirus, Covid-19:
      Following the latest advice from the UK Government and Public Health England, the Town Council is continuing to provide its public services to the people of Polegate. Other Category 1 agencies are responding to the needs of the vulnerable in our community as required of them. We are currently putting in place plans for most staff to work from home where possible and in accordance with the latest guidance.
      At present, some public meetings have been either postponed or cancelled.
      Our existing contingency plans have been modified in line with the latest guidance to deal with the unprecedented situation caused by the Covid-19 virus.
      At the present time our public reception area at our High Street offices in Polegate is closed, we would encourage residents to email or telephone wherever possible. Our emails and voicemails will continue to be monitored.
      Our outdoor staff have been given guidance so they can continue with their duties and take sensible precautions until such time as the advice changes.
      “We should all continue to follow Public Health England’s advice about good hygiene and social distancing. In difficult times, it is important that communities work together, particularly to help people who may be facing periods of self-isolation. The internet and the telephone will become increasingly important as we work together to support each other, keep in touch and manage the effects of the pandemic.”
