A message from the Mayor of Whitchurch, Cllr Bev Duffy
“The news of a third lockdown for England, may be an unwelcome announcement for many, but we all have our part to play in reducing the spread of the virus and protecting our wonderful NHS. As a community, we must to continue to support our friends, families and neighbours, especially looking out for people who live alone, as we have all done before. The infection rate in Whitchurch and Shropshire is lower than the national average, which doesn’t mean to we should be complacent, but can give us some reassurance.
It is important to support our local businesses whenever we can. Perhaps consider using click and collect or ordering food from a local establishment to enjoy at home? This will help to keep our High Street going both now and in the future.
