In the light of Government advice on the Coronavirus, Crowborough Town Council has made the decision to cancel or postpone committee meetings and council-run community events.
This includes the 75th VE Day anniversary commemorations (8th May), Boundary Walk (17th May), Sussex Day (16th June) and Summer Fair (11th July).
Council committee meetings will be postponed until the end of April.
In addition to the above measures, the Town Conference scheduled for the 22nd April is postponed until further notice.
The Mayor of Crowborough, Cllr Greg Rose, has issued the following statement:
Today we are announcing this series of measures to ensure the health and wellbeing of our staff and residents. Whilst these measures will be disruptive, the council will continue to operate all essential services and serve the town as best as possible. Our offices will be working on a skeleton staff and I request that all residents where possible phone or email the council rather than attend in person, and as of Monday the Council Offices will be closed to walk-in enquires.
The health of the residents of Crowborough is our number one priority and we will endeavour to help wherever possible.
From Monday (23rd March), due to limited staffing, the Council offices at Pine Grove will be closed to walk-in enquiries. All residents should direct their enquiries via the Council office email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or telephone (01892) 652907, or contact their councillors using the information on their website: www.crowboroughtowncouncil.gov.uk.
