COVID-19 Update

The Parish Council is aware that these are difficult times for many and have therefore made changes to the following in order to protect both staff and residents wherever possible.

The Council has suspended Public Meetings for the foreseeable future and is responding to Government advice as and when it receives it.

Covid-19: Coordinated support for the parish

The Parish Council is working closely with Wealden District Council and various groups and organisations to support those in need across the parish. We are liaising with volunteers in our 3 main settlements of Frant, Bells Yew Green and Eridge. If you have not already heard from them and need assistance because you are isolating, please contact us and we will connect you.
