A message from the Chairman

After 18 months the various restrictions that were placed on our lives have now gone but we do need to exercise caution in our daily lives as the virus is still out there. Despite the lifting of restrictions in England we should not forget that we are still in the midst of a pandemic. This is defined as a global epidemic and whilst we are managing it in this country, we should not forget that many other countries are not as far forward as we are in their vaccination programme. We still need to continue to think about the impact of our actions on others and we do need to keep washing hands, wearing masks and maintaining social distancing when asked to do so.

To repeat earlier messages, I would remind you that the Parish Council office remains closed to the public. If you need to contact our staff please either telephone or email.

Coral Shepherd
Chairman Dersingham Parish Council
