Covid-19 and Our response to date

As all countries around the world were left reeling when in March 2019 the Covid-19 Pandemic suddenly seemed to close the whole world down, Barry Town Council as a small local government entity had to deal with the fallout for Barry, the community and it’s own staff.

 

This is what we have done so far …

Throughout the pandemic we have used social media to keep residents up to date with Welsh Assembly Guidelines.  We have strictly followed all guidelines issued including closing our community spaces and limiting cemetery access when required.

We will continue to keep updating our usage guidelines, in line with Government guidelines and recommendations. please keep visiting out Facebook, twitter and website for details.

 

Also:
In the last year, Barry Town Council awarded over £194,000 to 150 businesses and organisations to aid in the town’s recovery from the Covid-19 global pandemic. Barry Town Council was overwhelmed with the response to the fund, and as a result has committed a further £44,000 to the fund which is available to local businesses.
Barry Town Council has also committed £19,000 to the fund available to community organisations based in Barry to apply for. This fund has also ring-fenced £4,000 which is available to community groups specifically for projects which demonstrate an environmental impact.
