Coronavirus (Covid-19) - Duntisbourne Support Group
Parish residents will be fully aware that in response to the current situation the Parish Council set up a volunteer ‘Duntisbourne Support Group’. A letter introducing the Support Group was written by the Chair of the Parish Council to provide details of the key personalities together with points of contact. The letter informed residents that the email address DuntisbourneHelp@gmail.com had been specifically created to manage access to the Support Group. A second supplementary support letter was written by the Support Group which usefully highlighted local services and support available to Parish residents. A third letter was sent in January 2021.
Cotswold District Council
Cotswold District Council has been providing regular Covid-19 Briefings. These briefings have been aimed primarily at County and District Councillors as well as Parish Councils. The Briefs have however inevitably benefited from wider circulation in order to inform and educate the wider community relating to action being taken as well as impact on service provision. The first Cotswold District Council Covid-19 Briefing was produced in April, a further Brief followed in May with the last Brief seen being dated June. Additionally, a Cotswold District Council Business Support Update was produced in May.
Ermin Ward Councillor
As Ermin Ward Councillor, Julia Judd provided an initial E-Mail Covid-19 Report to the Duntisborne Support Group which helped to highlight a number of important issues of relevance and interest to parish constituents. She subsequently provided a fuller District Councillor Covid-19 Report in May once greater clarity on numerous inter-related issues had been achieved.
