The Mayor praises the town’s effort

Cheltenham’s Mayor, Councillor John Rawson, said today,

The whole town has come together to cope with this crisis in a quite amazing way. Hundreds of people have given their time unstintingly to help their neighbours and their local community by distributing water, filling sandbags, supporting frail and disabled people, and in dozens of other ways. I am extremely grateful for the terrific work the Cheltenham volunteer centre has done to encourage and co-ordinate voluntary effort. I am also immensely proud of our council employees who have worked long hours to delver the services people need and to keep the public informed.

The Mayor continued,

These are difficult times for Cheltenham residents, but our strong sense of community has helped us come through. I have spoken to many residents, especially at the water distribution points, who couldn’t be more grateful for the help and support they have received.

    Hear Hear! A huge thank you to all the council staff who have volunteered during this current crisis, manning phones, making sure everything is co-ordinated and standing out in all weathers distributing bottled water.
