Message from Cllr Judy Pearce

Judy Pearce

We are of course disappointed to be in national lockdown, however it was inevitable that it would happen sooner, rather than later as infections rise quickly around the country.

There is growing pressure on hospitals in our region and we must do what we can to support the NHS. We know that these difficult times are extremely hard on our communities and we want to assure them that we are continuing to do everything we possibly can to support them.

It seems there is light at the end of this tunnel with vaccines now being rolled out and we must continue, as we have been already, to work together to keep our vulnerable residents and communities safe.

Cllr Judy Pearce, Leader of South Hams District Council

Message from Cllr Neil Jory

Cllr Neil Jory

Despite the best efforts of our communities, we find ourselves once again in lockdown, which is disappointing, but not entirely surprising when we look at the national picture.

I thank our residents again for continuing to follow the government’s guidance, with the increased hope that infection rates will soon decrease now that vaccines are being administered around the country. By mid-February, our most vulnerable residents and critical health workers will be protected, with the rest of our residents following soon afterwards.

West Devon Borough Council will continue to do everything in its power to support both our communities and our businesses. 

Cllr Neil Jory, Leader of West Devon Borough Council
