CORONAVIRUS EMERGENCY

This page will show national and local information and support available to our communities.  PCC’s office will be closed for the time being but you can contact us by email at clerk@pentyrch.cc or office@pentyrch.cc.  You can also contact your local PCC Councillor – all contact details are on the Councillor tab of this site and in the Community Link.  

Leaflets are being delivered to all households offering help to those who need it.  

A supply of green recycling and food bags will be kept by the front door of the office for as long as we are able to do that. We wish all of you the very best over the coming difficult weeks and months.
