Our Facilities During Lockdown

As we head into a new period of lockdown between November 5th and December 2nd this is a reminder that Witney Town Council is still operating and here to help you if we possibly can.
Here is a list of the facilities that are still open and available to you.

With shorter days and fewer opportunities for social contact be sure to make use of our green spaces for taking some exercise, or enjoying some fresh air, or just for a change of scene.
Witney has a fantastic community support network, so please keep looking out for your immediate neighbours.

Our staff are working from home for the most part, but you can still contact us by telephone and email and we will be continuing to issue information on our website and social media platforms along with press releases, copies of which are placed in the public noticeboard by the Town Hall.
We look forward to resuming normal service again in a few weeks and in the meanwhile keep Hands, Face, Space -ing!
