Changes to you Council Services Due to the Coronavirus  

Following the instructions from the Prime Minister 23 March 2020, the Town Council have implemented the following measures;

Council Offices and Community Centres

The Town Council offices are closed until further notice, but we can still be contacted on the usual telephone number. Due to this office closure, no post will be collected during this period, therefore please send all communication and invoices by electronic measures. 

If you would like to receive recycling sacks, these can be ordered from Milton Keynes Council to your home. Due to the office closure these will be unable to be collected from the town council offices until further notice. Hodge Lea Meeting Place will also be closed for bookings until further notice. 

All council and committee meetings now take place via video conferencing.

Allotments  

The town council allotments may be worked as part of your one form of exercise for the day. However, visits are limited to two people per plot, from the same family only. Social distancing must be adhered to and you may not visit the site if you have any symptoms of the coronavirus or you are self-isolating. The council see the provision of allotments as a key opportunity to grow your own produce, obtain daily exercise and support your wellbeing, so will strive to keep these sites open to allotment holders. However, if these rules are not adhered to, the council will be forced to close its sites until these measures are relaxed. 

Businesses 

The government has detailed a list of those businesses which must close due to the coronavirus. The full list with those exceptions are detailed here

Support for Charities 

Milton Keynes Council is providing £50,000 to kick start the appeal, with MK Community Foundation adding another £50, 000. All the money donated will be distributed to groups in Milton Keynes who play a vital part in supporting vulnerable people, such as Age UK and The Food Bank.

We'll be encouraging local people to donate and local groups to apply:

Support for Food Supplies
