Working for Wye - past, present and future

Wye Parish Council meeting cancelled

A rapid lateral flow test kit unpacked

Wye with Hinxhill Parish Council has cancelled its January meeting. This is in response to the shortage of lateral flow tests and the rapid spread of the Omicron variant in the Wye, Chilham and Kennington area. Consequently, all matters due for consideration will be held over to the 1st February meeting. The Parish Council apologises for any inconvenience that this may cause. In the interim, urgent business items e.g. payments due to suppliers and wages will proceed on time under delegated powers. This meeting cancellation could have been avoided, had the government responded to numerous requests and reinstated the option to meet remotely. The Parish Council supports the National Association of Local Councils view that the government's continuing inaction "will result in endangering councillors, clerks and members of the public."
