Dear Residents,

As a result of the Covid-19 virus we are all experiencing unprecedented and worrying times. Individuals, families, and business are already experiencing the effects and repercussions across the Cheswardine division and in the face of a national crisis it looks like this will most certainly escalate in the coming weeks, and potentially months.

It is very important that all residents follow the official advice, which is changing daily, this can be found https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/ Information regarding guidance and advice from government can be found https://www.gov.uk/government/topical-events/coronavirus-covid-19-uk-governmentresponse Advice can also be found on the Shropshire Council website https://www.shropshire.gov.uk/coronavirus/ I appreciate that not all residents have access to the internet, if anyone wants to speak to me my details are below, and I would be more than happy to verbally update them on the information from these websites. Likewise, I would like to ask all members of the community to do the same for those for those who might not be able to easily access the information. It has been fantastic to see the community spirit that has already been demonstrated across our parishes. All evidence available to us suggests that we are all going to have to support those elderly and vulnerable members of our families and wider community. I know we have wonderful communities and at times like these, we all pull together.

Please do not hesitate to contact me if you need any help or support from the local authority or myself as a member of the community.

Please all look after yourselves and others.

Yours sincerely, Rob Gittins

(Shropshire Councillor for Cheswardine, Childs Ercall, Hinstock, Sutton upon Tern)
