Coronavirus advice, support and returning to school

Latest on keeping safe, accessing support and local services

My week by Cllr. Steve Curran 2020

6 - 10 April

Hi Everyone,

Hope you and your family are keeping well. It’s been a very challenging week again for everyone, especially with the warmer weather and the Easter holiday fast approaching. I wanted to thank the vast majority of our residents who are complying with the Government’s instructions; stay at home, protect the NHS and save lives.

I know how difficult it is for those of you who live in flats, this is why we have kept all our parks and open spaces open for people to exercise in. They are not to be used for picnics, barbeques, football or cricket, all dogs should be kept on a lead and under no circumstances should you be removing tape or barriers from playgrounds or sports pitches to gain access. If you do so and/or don’t comply you will be fined - our Enforcement teams with the Police will be out patrolling in force this weekend.

We still have many more challenges in weeks ahead of us and following on from the Queen’s speech last weekend. We will all meet again, and we will all come through this by working together as a team and by staying home, protecting the NHS and saving lives.

I wanted to pay particular thanks to not only the NHS and other key workers, but to Council staff who are still providing vital services to our residents and businesses. Our highway crews and street cleaners are out every day, keeping the Borough clean and safe. I would also like to thank our waste and recycling teams for the excellent work they are doing, and the social care workers who remain so dedicated in some very challenging conditions. I should also mention all the other staff in the Council who are working so hard during the crisis, I’m very proud of them and they are all a credit to Hounslow.

Below you will find links to information on how the Council is tackling the coronavirus crisis and where you can find help and support.
