Thank you!

In our last briefing note we asked you to continue to follow advice and stay at home for Easter.

The vast majority of you did that and we’d like to say thank you to each and every one of you.

As we enter another week of staying at home except for essential journeys or local exercise it’s important that we continue to follow the stay at home advice in order to protect the NHS and ultimately save lives.


Please don’t light bonfires

We’re supporting our colleagues in North Wales Fire and Rescue Service and asking you not to have any bonfires.
