Cllr Seb Lowe, Conservative Leader of Rugby Borough Council and Leader of the Conservative Group has led a joint party statement reassuring residents in the Rugby Borough.
The statement said, “The first lockdown was difficult for many of our residents and businesses, but it also showed that our communities can pull together to do what is right for Rugby."
“As a council, we are prepared for a second lockdown and will continue to run the services that our communities rely on. Waste collection, homelessness services, housing repairs, and cemetery and crematorium services, for example, will continue."
“And, with hospitality venues and non-essential retail again required to close, we are preparing to distribute a further round of financial support when the details are finalised."
“Last month we called all of the residents who relied on our food delivery and emotional support services as part of the Shielding programme and offered them further support."
“We remain ready and willing to help our most vulnerable residents should they need us."
“A further lockdown period brings with it another period of uncertainty. However, if we all follow the guidelines and remember to wash our hands regularly, wear a face covering in enclosed spaces and keep apart from people we don’t live with, we can reduce the rate of infection and give ourselves the best possible chance to see things get back to normal soon.”
