MESSAGE  FROM  THE  MAYOR

We are living in unprecedented times but the Woburn Sands community has always been resilient and supportive - characteristics which are now serving us well.  Various volunteer groups have been established in different parts of the town and are providing valuable, and much appreciated, help for the elderly and vulnerable.  Thank you to all those involved.  We are also fortunate to have two supermarkets in the town where all essentials can be obtained - but please make sure that you practice social distancing.  We are very grateful to those restaurants and pubs which are providing takeaway services - a welcome addition to the domestic menu.  Asplands continues to provide an excellent service given the difficult circumstances under which they are working but please follow their guidance if you require medical help.  Although the Council's office is closed you can get in touch via email (l.stapleton@wstc.org.uk) or phone (01908 585368). We have also set up a COVID-19 page on this website where you can get all the latest information.  The Annual Town Meeting (planned for 21 April) has been cancelled but the reports which would have been presented will be available on this website - if you have any questions please do not hesitate to get in touch.
Normality will return at some point but, in the meantime, please follow the Government's guidance and stay safe.

Mike Geddes
Town Mayor
