HALESWORTH TOWN COUNCIL COVID 19 RELIEF SCHEME

Halesworth Town Council is concerned that the COVID-19 Virus emergency measures are causing serious financial hardship for some residents in Halesworth.

Although the Waveney Foodbank continues to provide wonderful support for those in need, the majority of the provisions are in the form of dry goods and tins. The Town Council has decided to compliment by providing fresh fruit, meat and vegetables through a voucher scheme in Halesworth with the help and support of some of our local shops.

This relief scheme is aimed at those who find themselves on very low income due to the current crisis. If you are a Halesworth resident and you need help please apply to the Town clerk on 01986 874517 or email clerk@halesworthtowncouncil.org.uk. The Office open hours are Monday, Wednesday and Fridays; 9am – 1pm. Vouchers will be issued dependent on the need and size of the family and only during the current lockdown measures.

The vouchers must be provided to the retailer either in person if you visit the shop, or exchanged on delivery (if this option is available).

There is a similar but separate scheme for the villages surrounding Halesworth supported by their own Parish Councils. This will be organised through the Blyth Valley Ministry (07771 556391).
