WE ARE CURRENTLY WORKING TOWARDS OPENING OUR INFORMATION OFFICE

We have taken advice government advice and are preparing to open this office on a trial basis. All risk assessments relative to COVID-19 are being carried out and once approved we can once again offer this service to our residents and visitors. 

 

It is with deep regret that Peacehaven Town Council has made the hard decision, following Government and NHS guidelines and advice, to close Community House and the Information Office, until further notice.

All planned events, council meetings, coffee mornings, markets, etc are cancelled or will be put on hold until further notice. For those who have purchased tickets or paid in advance for any function, please hold onto your tickets until we can re-schedule. The Summer Fair has been cancelled for this year.

In accordance with Government advice, PTC staff will now work from home until further notice. We are equipped to operate from home with staff able to access their emails. Please be assured that any PTC staff seen working are fully adhering to the most rigid precautions in order to perform security and maintenance work.

We are doing everything we can to support our residents and the need to consider their health, so your support with this decision would be appreciated. Please share this official notice and we thank you for understanding.

So do please do contact us on 01273 585493 or info@peacehaventowncouncil.gov.uk and we will do our very best to help you.

We hope you remain safe and well and look forward to seeing you in person again soon.

A MESSAGE FROM THE MAYOR

Take extra care of yourself and be kind to others.

Dear residents,

Within a couple of weeks, the threat of Coronavirus has completely changed the way we live work and socialise in Peacehaven. So many are now working from home and with increased exposure to media, fear has spread very quickly, and we are all genuinely concerned.

At Peacehaven Town Council we are following all advice made by the Government to keep our staff, councillors and community members safe.

Despite the fear, I’d like to say that it is in time of great challenges that we see kindness, love and solidarity at their best in the community. In the shopping centre yesterday, someone I did not know helped me carry my groceries. I received a message from a neighbour offering to help any elderly who needs food, medication or support with shopping.  This filled my heart with hope and reassured me that we will never be alone.

With so many people already lonely called to self-isolate, I am now confident that our collective effort will overcome today’s challenges in Peacehaven. Here are some simple steps we can take to strengthen our community:

  1. Think about others and be kind to everyone.
  2. Reach out to your neighbour, friends and relatives and offer to help.
  3. Stay informed and follow Government Guidance.
  4. Support the most vulnerable members of the community
  5. Share accurate information and advice.

Yes, together we will prevail over Coronavirus.

Take extra care of yourself and be kind to others.

Claude Cheta,

Your Mayor
