Dear Residents,
We are living through very difficult times and I fear that things are going to get worse before they get better. Many of our friends and family members are already in full or partial self-isolation, our local businesses are suffering and despite their best efforts they have been forced to close their doors. There will be great anxiety within our community about what the future holds and we are all concerned about the well being of our family members particularly those who are living alone and who are elderly. Our great NHS is doing its best to help us despite such stretched resources and local care services will continue to struggle in caring for those most in need. I urge everyone to follow Government advice and some of the important links to that advice follow this message.
From the gloom there have been examples of great community spirit with local groups and individuals coming to the fore offering help to those who are in the highest risk category. Local businesses, including those forced to close, are offering help with takeaway food delivery services. On behalf of the Town Council I applaud them and thank them for their kindness. Details of some of those groups and businesses also follow this message for your information.
On behalf of the Town Council I wish you all the best and hope that you and your families stay safe and healthy through this difficult and unprecedented time.
Please keep following Government advice.
Cllr Nick Holroyd
Kirkbymoorside Town Mayor
