Comments Off on Covid-19

We are living in uncertain times. Coronavirus is having a massive impact on all our lives. it impacts all of us, in many different ways. We just wanted to pull a few local websites together so that if you or your family is struggling, we want you to know that you are not alone.

Remember Stay at home!

– Only go outside for food, health reasons or work (but only if you cannot work from home)
– If you go out, stay 2 metres (6ft) away from other people at all times
– Wash your hands as soon as you get home
– Do not meet others, even friends or family. You can spread the virus even if you don’t have symptoms.


Stay Safe. HWRA Team


Headline CBC news is:
– No garden waste collection
– Council owned car parking is free.
– Loughborough Markets are suspended.

PACT is an opportunity for residents and residents groups in Shelthorpe & Nanpantan wards to meet with the key service providers, share information about what’s happening in their area and agree how partners will work together to tackle any issues.

If anybody has any issues that they would like discussing please let HWRA known. Alternatively if you are a member of a local group and think that PACT maybe of interest or help to you get in touch with the group coordinator. PACT meetings aim to take place every 3 months at different locations around Shelthorpe, Outwoods and Nanpantan Ward.
