Cllr Mike Coleman told the full council meeting he has written to traders, those in the industrial units, schools, care homes and semi sheltered accommodation.

He thanked 100 town traders, acknowledging the challenges they faced and thanking them for their efforts in ensuring the community had supplies and had been provided with quality care.

He highlighted that some had gone “the extra mile” in caring for others.

He also thanked industry directors and employees for caring for staff, and for employees who did their best to keep families safe.
