COVID - 19 information

A message from Richard Gibson, Strategy and Engagement Manager. Cheltenham Borough Council

The local resilience forum have gone live today with the Gloucestershire's community help hub:

https://www.gloucestershire.gov.uk/gloucestershires-community-help-hub/

This will do 2 things; it will be a place where people who wish to volunteer can register their interest. Secondly, it will be a place where people who need help can register their requirements. Each district council will receive a daily list of both volunteers and people with requirements. Please feel free to use the hub to register people in your community that you might be concerned about.

There is a government-led initiative to make phone contact with every vulnerable person to check if they need any support that can't be provided by their families or friends. Theye are currently working out the practicalities of how this will work but expect to go live with this from Monday.

They are in discussions with food banks and other food suppliers about how they significantly increase the provision and delivery of food parcels / cooked food for our most vulnerable residents. They have had some positive discussions so far and will finalise arrangements next week. This will then enable them to hopefully meet demand arising from the hub and the phone calls.

They have updated their web-pages to provide more advice and information and have also started to include links to the websites and facebook groups. Please feel free to share:

Leckhampton with Warden Hill is one of only five parishes within Cheltenham Borough Council's area; much of Cheltenham is not parished, and is located in the south of Cheltenham.

It is a pleasant place to live, being conveniently situated for a wide variety of local amenities in and around Cheltenham. The area is served by several good schools.

The area is surrounded by a number of green open spaces, with Leckhampton sitting at the foot of Leckhampton Hill and centred around the medival parish church of St Peter's. Warden Hill is served by two churches, St Christopher's and the United Reformed Church, and has a local shopping area for the benefit of residents.

One of the main priorities of the parish council is to protect the area from over development and consequently the Council has spent a considerable amount of time gathering evidence to present to the planning authorities about how the proposals for development in the area contained in the Joint Core Strategy would be harmful to the area and residents.

Just over a year ago the Parish Council started monitoring air pollution and installed diffusion tubes around the Parish and also used a portable particulates monitor to carry out a series of readings
in Church Road, close to Leckhampton School. We are now trialling a new particulates monitor from PurpleAir, and plan to install 3 or 4 more around the parish. See our Air Pollution page

There are a number of community groups in the area also and you can find them in the directory section

The Council also strongly supports the young people of the area and was instrumental in having The Brizen Young People's Centre built. The building is now leased to the Parish Council by Cheltenham Borough Council and run by a small and conscientious group of trustees, led by its Chairman Dr Jodie Underhill and Parish Cllr Anne Regan the Vice Chair.
