Town Mayor launches ‘LEAVE NO ONE BEHIND’ campaign in Haywards Heath, working with Haywards Heath Covid-19 Mutual Aid, to help the community in these unprecedented times
Cllr Alastair McPherson, Town Mayor of Haywards Heath comments:
“We live in unprecedented times.
On Monday evening I and my fellow Councillors resolved at a Meeting of the Full Council to close the Town Hall building for the foreseeable future, based on government guidance about limiting gatherings of people.
At this meeting we also agreed upon a plan to support our older and more vulnerable residents in our Town. This is a difficult and scary time for many residents of our Town and we have agreed to do all we can to help the community in this extraordinary time.
It’s now Thursday and we are launching our community network response to support this most important section of our community and ‘LEAVE NO ONE BEHIND’ as they potentially self-isolate for the next few weeks.
It is hoped that the vast majority of our residents will experience few issues, except perhaps a change in their day to day activities, but we must be proactive and protect anyone who is older and more vulnerable in our society. It is all of our responsibility to ‘LEAVE NO ONE BEHIND’, so I’m here to explain what Hayward Heath Town Council is rolling out for our community and Town over the next few days.
