Dear residents and partners,

The beginning of the week saw the Prime Minister announce the new guidance for social distancing to be implemented from 4 July. This included changes to the two meter distance rule, the relaxing of rules for certain shops and venues, plus changes for those in the shielding category.

These announcements will have come as good news for residents and local businesses but we would urge everyone not to jeopardise the good progress our county has made so far in slowing the spread of the virus. Support our businesses and make the most of the relaxation, but please continue to take the necessary precautions at all time.

Finally, before you take a look at our latest updates below, we would like to say a massive thank you to everyone who makes up the Armed Forces community, especially for all of the help they have provided our county during the pandemic. Tomorrow is Armed Forces Day and here are some ideas on how you can show your support.

Keep safe and thank you for your continued support.
