Bude-Stratton Town Council has set up a dedicated C-19 Facebook response page to provide support and information to all our local community by sharing updates on the latest guidance from the National Government, Local Council, County Council and Public Health England. The page is also supporting local volunteer groups in their fantastic efforts to help our community.
For those without the internet the Town Council is running a telephone support service where you can call and be provided with your closest point of contact should you be self-isolating or vulnerable. The telephone number is 01228 353576 and is manned Monday-Friday 10 am-4 pm.
The fantastic community group Bude and surrounding areas Quarantine Support Group have been collating the huge amount of help offered by our community into one map provided by Neetmaps. This map will enable people who are in isolation to find out who their closest volunteer is should they need vital supplies such as food and medication. Please be aware that the people listed are volunteers and we ask all to maintain the upmost respect when contacting them, this is a true community effort, and we thank everyone who has been instrumental in organising this and volunteering to support those most at risk in our community.
Latest Update: 15 May 2020 – Following the government guidance issued this week which came into force on the 13th May we will be re-opening the public toilets.
From Monday 18th the Cresent toilets will be open. Summerleaze and Crooklets toilets will re-open on Monday 25th May. Social distancing guidance will be in place, please ensure you follow these to protect yourself, others and our facilities team.
At present all other Bude-Stratton Town Council maintained properties remain closed, this includes The Castle, The Library, The Parkhouse Centre, Pitch & Putt and the Play Parks. We are monitoring the situation on a daily and weekly basis and will respond to guidance issued appropriately.
This week we also wanted to put a spotlight on wellbeing and mental health awareness, especially during these times of uncertainty. It’s normal to feel stressed, anxious or nervous but there is lots of support available and you are not alone, please reach out to local or national networks.
To support you we have uploaded specific guides from Cornwall Council that cover a range of areas and useful information:
