    The Government has made a series of announcements in the Budget last week and over the last few days on measures to support businesses during this difficult time. [Update 23 March 2020 - see the Coronavirus: Business Support Measures [23rd March Update]. ] We are regularly updating information about these on our www.Folkestone.works website, including:

  • Sandgate and West Folkestone Focus March 2020 Page 1
    Article: Mar 18, 2020

    The issue that never was: this edition of SWF Focus was written and printed by mid-March, and although a few hundred were delivered on 12 and 13 March, the remainder were to be delivered week commencing March 16th.

    Having taken advice from a range of people, it has been decided that delivering this leaflet door-to-door for every resident in Sandgate and West Folkestone as usual is not appropriate at this time. Although the risk of our volunteer deliverers, or the leaflets they would be delivering, acting as a means of transmission of Coronavirus seems slight it is not nil, and so we do not wish to cause additional concern to local residents by delivering at this time.

    We hope you understand: please feel free to read it online (and if anyone wants 2,500 A4 colour leaflets let me know, or they will be humanely sent for recycling!).

    After the Government update last night on the Coronavirus / Covid-19 pandemic, there have been a number of anouncements and changes locally. I can't comment on if the Government advice is right / adequate (I'll leave that to experts!) but I am hearing a lot of updates from across our local community, and thought it might be helpful to bring them together here.
