The people of Marlow have been praised by the Town Council for all their hard work which has been shown throughout the current coronavirus pandemic.

The whole country entered lockdown on March 23 with many local businesses suffering from a loss of trade in the town.

But thanks to the kind-hearted people in Marlow, several fundraisers, campaigns and good deeds have been conducted to help those in need.

Additionally, over 9,000 people have stepped forward to volunteer in Buckinghamshire in response to the Covid-19 pandemic, including those registering directly with local groups, NHS volunteer responders and with Buckinghamshire Council.

They joined the thousands of volunteers who already give their time for free to help deliver key services to the community – both before and during this time of crisis.

Mayor of Marlow Richard Scott said: “We recognise the huge contribution of local volunteers, who help with everything from litter-picking to delivering meals, and want to say a heartfelt ‘thank you’ to all those who have come forward to help, in large ways and small.

“We are a community of volunteers at the best of times, for which we are very grateful.

“This year, more so than ever before, we have seen the huge difference volunteers make to the lives of many people within our community.

“As part of Volunteers’ Week, we would like to reiterate our thanks to everyone who volunteers and plays an invaluable role in keeping our community together.
