Bo’ness Community COVID-19
Bo’ness Community Council are aware that we are facing uncertain times as a result of the COVID-19 virus and it is now more important that ever that we as a community come together, whilst adhering to the advice from Scottish and UK Government on Social Distancing and personal hygiene.
Falkirk Council have created a dedicated page on their website pulling together the most recent updates from NHS Scotland and impacts on local services within our Council Area, this information can be found here
In accordance to the guide lines Bo’ness Community Council have cancelled our April meeting and also postponed the annual presentation of our McLaren Trophy. This year’s recipents are Unison Kinneil Band. We will continue to monitor the progressing situation for future meetings and will continue to connect with the community via both our Facebook and Twitter accounts.
In the community a new group, Bo’ness and Blackness Community Response Covid 19, has been formed to help residents reach out to neighbours or those who require additional support at this time, if you think you can help visit their website this site also links back to their own Facebook page which is the main source of co-ordinating the response.
Scottish Government have also made available an extra £350 million for communities who are struggling during COVID-19 pandemic. The funding will be made available to councils, charities, businesses and community groups and designed to be flexible, cutting down on red tape to enable them to respond swiftly and according to local need for people impacted economically or through reduced contact with society, including anyone struggling to access food. If you think your group can benefit from this funding you’ll find full information here
To all our residents, stay safe and be kind to one and other.
