Update on Covid-19 from the council

The council is keeping us up to date on its web site www.bathnes.gov.uk

Here’s some recent news…

We understand Bus passes can be used before 9:00 and we believe that the U1 is running to the holiday timetable but the U3 has stopped running.

If rubbish hasn’t been picked up don’t call, check their  current collection problems page for information on specific roads that have missed collections.

Community Support Flash Briefing

It contains information on how local community groups can respond to the evolving situation, information on useful networking tools, a list of key contacts and details of PHE resources which we hope you will be able to share with your community to support each other as much as possible.

Bath & North East Somerset Council is working with our local 3rd sector infrastructure organisation 3SG and Virgincare to support communities and the most vulnerable in their own homes during the coronavirus pandemic.

3SG is recruiting volunteers through its #CompassionateCommunities scheme to offer support to community groups and charities as they work to help the elderly or vulnerable people self-isolating. You can read their most recent newsletter here.
