As Mayor of Teignmouth, I take my responsibility and duty of care to our community seriously.
We all now face uncertainties and we find ourselves in uncharted waters with the Coronavirus outbreak. Therefore, it is with regret and sadness the Civic Service, which is due to be held on Sunday 15th March 2020, St Michael’s Church at 3.00pm is being cancelled.
My wife and I were both so looking forward to this event, especially as I have had an amazing year as Mayor so far.
However, there are many in our community who are in ‘high risk categories’ so there is a need to be cautious and take sensible precautions to protect everyone who is likely to attend the service and reception from any unnecessary risk has to be a priority.
Cllr Robert Phipps
Mayor of Teignmouth
