Coronavirus updates

In view of the serious and constantly evolving situation, Crayke PC will publish news and advice as it appears.

This post updated 6th June 2020:

  • The Crayke Coronavirus Community Support Group is now in place
    A leaflet was posted in all properties in Crayke over last weekend, with a list of who to contact.
    In particular a special mobile phone is available to call or text.
    We have around fifteen primary contacts in the group, some with backup helpers, ready to help with shop runs, prescription runs or simply to call and chat.
    So if you live in Crayke and need help, or know someone in Crayke who needs help, and don’t have a copy of the leaflet, then please contact us via our contact page.
  • Parish Council news: At our last meeting, held in 17th March just before the current coronavirus lockdown situation, special measures were agreed in line with advice from Government and the Local Government associations (NALC and YLCA). The measures allow us to hold meetings remotely. Hence, until further notice, Council meetings will be held using Zoom video conferencing. The meetings will be open to the public.

Other news
