Bouth update

Mar 26, 2020

Cllr Marion Brown, supported by her husband, is coordinating efforts in Bouth and is leading, with support from other councillors, the approach for Colton Parish Council in reaching out to our communities.  As you can imagine she is very occupied at the moment and says,

“..for Bouth we are going out to Underfield House on the tollbar road, Low Hay Bridge, Crook Farm, Burn Knott at end of village and the three houses at the end of the causeway.  Myself and my husband are link points, and are currently also doing collections of shopping and prescriptions. We have a couple of back-up  people if we need them.

We have set up a limited WhatsApp group locally in Bouth so we have about a dozen people we can real-time message”

Marion has also joined a number of regional and national groups to ensure that Colton Parish has access to the most relevant and accurate information during this time and she can be contacted via the links provided on the website or via the Clerk.
