Welcome to our latest edition of Your Norfolk.
I hope you, your family and friends are safe and well. With the outbreak of Covid-19 our world has changed so much since I last wrote to you.
Norfolk’s councils have spearheaded a huge community and partnership effort to protect our most vulnerable people, provide the latest public health advice and keep key services running, with appropriate social distancing.
Norfolk County Council’s public health teams have been working alongside our NHS colleagues to provide vital care and advice and react swiftly to new Government guidelines.
In addition to providing critical services, we have tried to ease the pressures of people in ‘lockdown’ by offering digital support through the library, adult learning and museum services, to help wellbeing and support home schooling.
Our councillors have continued to serve their communities, often through digital means. We’re having our cabinet meetings online, so that you can see democratic decisions are still taking place.
This edition of Your Norfolk showcases some of the varied work we are doing to help support all the residents of our county.
I am very proud of how our communities have come together during this time. Thanks to all of you who are supporting relatives and friends and volunteering to help others in these difficult times.
Councillor Andrew Proctor, Leader of Norfolk County Council
