CORONAVIRUS UPDATE

Dear Parishioners

As from Wednesday 18th March 2020, until further notice, the Parish Office at Kempsey Community Centre will not be operational from that location. All administration will, however, still function.

All contact can be made as normal by telephone, 01905 828183,
and by email, kempseyparishcouncil@gmail.com

We have closed the Community Centre and Youth Centre to all user groups.
These measures have been taken for the wellbeing of users and staff. We trust that everyone will understand these precautions during this exceptional time.

The Parish Council is supporting the Rev. Badger in the coordination of voluntary support to the elderly and vulnerable in the Parish. An outreach to all households will follow shortly.


Please stay safe in these difficult times.


There is now a scheme in operation for anyone who needs help or support. Please see the poster below.

Website Accessibility Statement

The Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) Accessibility Regulations 2018 requires public sector bodies, which includes local councils, to ensure reasonable adjustments are made to websites so they are accessible to people with various disabilities. These include:

Impaired vision

Motor difficulties

Cognitive impairments or learning disabilities

Deafness or impaired hearing

From 23 September 2020 all local council websites will have to comply with those regulations.

Kempsey Parish Council understands these requirements but must advise that this current website is not compliant with these regulations, and due to its age is unable to be so. We are currently working with a website design company to produce an up to date and fully compliant new website.

Should anyone have difficulty accessing our current website they should contact the Parish Office on 01905 828183 or by email at kempseyparishcouncil@gmail.com. Our staff will be able to help you with any information that you cannot access
