I work for a company that runs a Pharmacy that delivers (usually) next working day to people in their own homes. We have had a significant increase in people wanting this support at the current time.
We can also order medications from doctors for people (again often automatically through the NHS to minimise disruption to other health services).

I will be out on patrol over the weekend alongside colleagues, proactively targeting these areas.... Read More »

This is not being done to encourage people to come to town centres at this time, but we hope it will be useful to residents now staying at home and that struggle to find spaces to park on the street.
Coalville Market remains open in line with the supermarkets to provide the sale of food and essentials.... Read More »

Sadly, we've had to the decision to close our parks and playgrounds from tonight. While we'd love to keep them open it is simply too difficult for people to follow social distancing guidelines in these areas.
It's not physically possible for us to lock up many of our parks and playgrounds – but we ask for your support in adhering to these closures.
Public toilets managed by NWLDC in Coalville and... Read More »
