  • Office Closed March 26, 2020

    Due to the Coronavirus outbreak, the Town Council office is now closed until further notice.

  • Closure of Play Areas and Public Toilets March 24, 2020

    Following the more stringent measures announced regarding Covid-19 and social distancing by the Government on Monday 23rd March 2020, the play areas at Mill Lane Recreation Ground and Henry Smith Playing Fields (which also include the outdoor gym, skatepark and table tennis) are now closed to the public until further notice.

    The Public Toilets are now closed until further notice.

    Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience caused.

  • Coronavirus and contacting the Town Council March 19, 2020

    Following updated guidance from the Government and their professional health specialists, the town council offices at the Community Centre will be closed for face-to-face visits for the foreseeable future. However, we can still be contacted via email on pottoncouncil@btconnect.com or phone 01767 260086.

    At this time (19/03/2020), our hireable facilities remain open and we wish to reassure users of our facilities that whilst we always maintain a good standard of cleanliness, we have increased cleaning of high touch areas. If the situation changes and we feel we must close the Community Centre and Pavilion at Mill Lane, we will provide an update on our website www.pottontowncouncil.co.uk, Facebook page and will contact hirers immediately.

    At this challenging time, with daily changes to the situation, we urge all residents to be mindful of your elderly or vulnerable neighbours. Perhaps you could offer to collect their shopping or prescriptions? This confusing and perhaps frightening time will see some people, particularly in isolation, feeling lonely. Perhaps you could consider passing those people your contact number, spend some time chatting to them on the phone, and a regular call to make sure they are still well.

    Please ensure you keep yourself fully informed on latest Government and NHS updates, which will be issued on a very regular basis.
