As the Lockdown continues, Goldshaw Booth PC has suspended all meetings until further notice. Any essential issues are being communicated and actioned via emails between Councillors.

The risks are very real and we should all conform to social isolation as requested by the experts.

It is odd to think how quickly our freedom was rescinded when the virus arrived. It is of course for the best that we remain isolated for all but essential needs. Please spare a thought for anyone who may need help in our community.

I had hoped to be talking about village activities such as preparations for the Best Kept Village competition etc but sadly that is not the case.

The new Parish website is now up and running and can be found at – there is plenty of informaRon and photos to occupy your time. Any news will be communicated here also.

I would like to wish everyone well and hope you all stay safe at this time.

— Bob Donovan – Chair, Goldshaw Booth Parish Council
