To all residents of the community – you are not alone

A special message to all Melksham residents from the Leader of Melksham Town Council

Dear residents of our community,

I know we are currently facing unprecedented circumstances in our community and across the country. Some residents may be feeling quite anxious and even a little scared at the measures we are all being asked to take. It’s OK to feel that way, you are not alone. 

Over the past few days I have taken many calls and answered dozens of emails from residents who are concerned over how they and their loved ones will be supported through these coming days and weeks, if not months. 

Your Town and Parish Councils have been working tirelessly to set up a Melksham Community Support hub which will organise volunteers who wish to help those who are having to self-isolate. If you are self-isolating or would like to volunteer, we encourage people to do so through the dedicated website, email address or phone number. 

I’d like to reassure residents that your Town and Parish Councils will continue to adapt to the changing needs of the community. I have been incredibly impressed at how our community has come together to support one another and would like to continue to encourage residents to be kind and considerate to each other. 

Many of our key businesses are still operating to serve the community and they deserve our respect and patience during this time. I will continue to provide updates to our residents as things progress, in the meantime let’s remember that the virus will pass, however our kindness towards one another will always be remembered. 

Cllr Vanessa Fiorelli

Leader of Melksham Town Council
