Coronavirus (COVID-19) 

 The Town Council Office is closed to all members of the public with immediate effect and until further notice.  This decision has been taken as a precautionary measure to help prevent the spread of Covid-19, particularly to those more vulnerable in our society.

We will be accessing emails periodically - clerk@knaresboroughtowncouncil.gov.uk - and we will deal with queries if possible. Individual Town Councillors can still be contacted via their email addresses, please visit our Councillors page or click here.

Knaresborough Connectors

If you are self-isolating in Knaresborough and need support then a special helpline has been set up to connect you to a volunteer service.  Ring the number above and leave a message or email info@knaresboroughconnectors.org.uk where there are a team of volunteers ready to respond within hours.  They are able to pick up shopping, have a friendly phone chat, help with pets, post mail and pick up supplies and medicines.  The team can even help to get items for hobbies like wool for knitting.



Volunteers are needed to add to the army of over 100 people leafletting households as part of their single daily exercise routine with details of the service.  Volunteers need to email info@knaresboroughconnectors.org.uk with their name and address.
