A message from Terri Butler MP:
Thank you for everything you are doing to keep everyone safe during the pandemic. As our communities try to get on top of the most recent outbreak, everyone has been pulling together to do what’s necessary. We have seen some remarkable selflessness and community spirit from locals, and I am really grateful to everyone who has done their part.
