Council services over Christmas and the New Year

ballsThe majority of our services will operate as normal over the festive period but there are some changes, to take into account Bank Holidays and to ensure we provide best value for the taxpayer.

You can contact us via our website and via our social media channels (Facebook, Twitter and Instagram) - these are monitored during normal Town Hall opening hours.

In emergencies, we can be contacted on 01372 732000 - this service operates 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
