Although the offices of Trowbridge Town Council have had to close due to Government guidelines during the current Coronavirus crisis, colleagues from the Information Services Team and Active Trowbridge have been helping more vulnerable and elderly residents with collections of prescriptions and essential shopping items. Office staff have been working from home, taking calls and emails from those other members of the community who may need advice about the situation, how public transport for the area has been affected, or asking for help regarding online ordering of groceries.
The Town Council will continue to offer these services from Monday to Friday until further notice. If you need to contact them, please call 01225 765072 between 8am and 4pm, or send an email to in**@tr********.uk">in**@tr********.uk.
