A Message from Steve Manwaring, HVA Director


“The Coronavirus presents the biggest challenge in my lifetime and will affect everyone but particularly those who are vulnerable. It will cause anxiety and disruption.

At this crucial time communities will be depending on each other like never before and already we have seen local people quietly stepping forward to signal that they can be called on when required to play their part. We have seen neighbour reaching out to neighbour and community projects going the extra mile to offer reassurance and support to the most vulnerable members of our community.

I know that the Town has an amazing network of community activists, volunteers, groups and organisations. Whatever challenges we will face in the weeks ahead I know that together we will meet them.”
Steve Manwaring, Director HVA
