Trusting The People

It is good news that the Coronavirus outbreak is well past its peak and on the decline, thanks to everyone’s efforts to stay at home as much as possible over the last couple of months. Social distancing remains important, but it is also important for people’s health and wellbeing to get outdoors to exercise and enjoy the sunshine.

Government Support for West Sussex

The scale of government support for our town during the coronavirus outbreak has been unprecedented and very welcome. In total, government support for UK local government and communities since the beginning of the pandemic has been almost £27 billion. This includes direct support for our local councils, emergency funding to support rough sleepers, business rates relief, and grants for small business.
