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!
