Virtual Parish Council meetings

Town-House
Melanie Chammings, Parish Council Clerk 

You will know that Barley Parish Council (BPC) cancelled its monthly meetings in April and May due to the Covid crisis. Clearly the recovery period will be longer than any of us imaged so BPC has decided to go 'virtual'.

 

The first virtual meeting will be held, via Zoom, on Monday 1st June at 7pm. This will be the Annual General Meeting, at which the Chair and Vice Chair will elected for the coming year. It will also be necessary to sign off the Annual Governance and Financial Assessment for external audit.

 

There may be additional items for the agenda which I will publish as usual closer to the meeting date.

 

If you wish to attend you will need to have access to Zoom, and I will send you the joining link if you email me at barley.parishclerk@gmail.com

 

This will be a new way of delivering our public meetings, probably for a few months to come so if you decide to join us in June, there may be a few teething problems so please be patient.

COVID-19 Vaccinations Update

 

Have you had your first Covid vaccination yet?  If not, and you are in a cohort between 1 and 6, please contact us as soon as possible to arrange an appointment.

 

If you fall into one of the cohorts 7 to 12, please ring 119 or go to https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/coronavirus-vaccination/ where you can directly book your first dose appointment at a central vaccination centre.

 

If you need to book your second dose, NHS England guidelines state that patients should return to the venue where they had their first vaccination, as the second dose will be allocated and sent to that original venue.

 

As always, if any of the Covid vaccination guidelines change we will let you know via our website www.grantamedicalpractices.co.uk and our social media platforms. However, please don’t hesitate to contact us direct if you do not have access to the internet.

 

We would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for your continued support and kind words, as well as all the biscuits, chocolates and other lovely treats. The goodwill shown to us whilst we deliver the vaccines means so much to all of us.

Update from Royston & District Community Transport

From Monday 12 April Community Transport should be back to normal - barring last minute Government change of mind of course!

 

We are once again available for hairdresser and similar appointments, shopping trips, gym, and social visits (as long as they are meeting up outdoors or at a garden centre), BUT we will keep our precautions as before - our rules for one household per car remains, preferably with one person in the back although we are flexible to take carers or allow sitting in a front seat if back seat is too difficult, and of course, don’t forget your face mask.

 

As usual we will try our best to meet your needs, please ring the office on (01763) 245228 between 9:00am and 3:00pm Monday to Friday.

 

We look forward to seeing you again…
