CLOSURE OF SKATE PARK AND FITNESS EQUIPMENT DURING LOCKDOWN
In line with Government guidance it is necessary for Ledbury Town Council to close the outdoor fitness equipment and skate park at the Bye Street Recreation Ground and these areas will close from 5 November 2020.
The Government, when providing guidance, has recognised the importance of the need for playgrounds to remain open. Playgrounds are a valuable community asset that provide children with a stimulating and tactile experience to exercise and learn through play.
These are temporary measures that have been put in place from 5 November 2020 following Government guidance regarding the lockdown.
Statement from the Town Mayor, Councillor Dan Vesma in respect of the Covid-19 outbreak at Mathon.
I would like to express my concern regarding the COVID-19 outbreak at Mathon.
First and foremost, I wish a full and speedy recovery to those who are dealing with symptoms and offer my sympathies to their family and friends who will no doubt be finding this to be a very distressing situation. I also offer Ledbury's support to those working to contain the virus within the farm, although from what I understand, every action is already being taken to limit the wider impact.
I know that the schools and other local organisations are in close contact with Public Health England, and I am reassured that they do not see additional risk to Ledbury's population. COVID is a cruel virus, and this outbreak should be a reminder to all of us that we are far from out of the woods. I would urge my fellow citizens to be respectful towards each other's health and take every opportunity to reduce the risk of transfer, give each other space and use masks where appropriate."
Councillor Dan Vesma

COVID-19 – support for Victims of Domestic Abuse
Measures announced over recent weeks to tackle coronavirus (COVID-19) have seen people’s day-to-day lives drastically altered. These changes are essential to beat coronavirus and protect our NHS.
The government acknowledges that the order to stay at home can cause anxiety for those who are experiencing or feel at risk of domestic abuse. There is never an excuse for domestic abuse, no matter what the circumstances are.
For anyone who feels they are at risk of abuse, it is important to remember that there is help and support available to you, including police response, online support, helplines, refuges and other services. You are not alone.
If you are in danger and unable to talk on the phone, dial 999, listen to the questions from the operator and respond by coughing or tapping the handset if you can. Then follow the instructions depending on whether you are calling from a mobile or a landline.
