South Lakeland District Council sent us a great message!
Like us, they are all still there and committed to working. The District Council look after bin collections, environmental protection and benefits and want to reassure you that these will be maintained.
All the Councils (Town, District and County) are working with each other and the NHS to keep everyone safe.
If you need to contact the District Council you can phone them on 01539 733333 or email as usual to firstname.lastname@example.org
It's really encouraging to see how quickly everyone is moving to make sure that everyone in the community is looked after. Pop a note through your neighbours door, say hi and let them know they are not alone. For those of you who may be feeling alone, we'll be posting details of help very soon.

March 21: Trial By Jury & Pirates of Penzance
