Coronavirus - Statement by Warminster Town Council – 17/3/2020

In line with the Government advice, that it is time for everyone to stop non-essential contact with others, Warminster Town Council has taken the following decisions.


Civic Centre
The Civic Centre will be closed to the public. 

Hirers are being encouraged to roll forward bookings to
future dates, take a credit note or accept a refund as appropriate.


Town Council
Staff will continue to undertake their duties, working from home where possible.


Pavilion Café
The Pavilion Cafe is to close, and boats will not be available to hire on the lake until further notice.


Play Areas and Skatepark
The Council will continue to ensure health and safety inspections take place. It would be extremely difficult to physically stop people using them, but we ask people to be mindful of Government advice.

The following events are cancelled -
 Monthly film shows at the civic centre – 

16th March, 15th April, 20th May and 17th June.

 Annual Town Meeting- 6th April.
 The Civic Service – 19th April.
 Spring in the Park – 3rd May.

The Council will strive to keep the public toilets open and CCTV operations going.


The Council advises people to listen to Warminster Community Radio (WCR) for the latest news updates on the situation locally and follow the official advice from the Government.


The Council will continue to closely follow Government advice. Any changes in the situation at the Council will be communicated on the Council website and Facebook pages.
