South Hams Launch a Community Response Team

This week South Hams have mobilised a Community Response Team to ensure that there is additional support available for our local communities during the Coronavirus Outbreak.
They have divided the South Hams into eight Cluster areas.
Each area has been assigned a lead and second officer who will be the first point of contact on any queries or issues related to the response.
These officers will be working closely with the local Ward Members, who will be instrumental in supporting their local communities.

For all enquires relating to your area please contact Councillor Richard Foss (Strete Ward Councillor) as the first point of contact.


We have been alerted to a number of scams circulating about COVID-19 from Trading Standards, who have produced a guide to current scams, which is attached.

  • Counterfeit goods such as hand sanitiser, face masks and swabbing kits are also being widely advertised online.
  • Financial scams, both online and by telephone, have also increased as criminals seek to take advantage of the financial uncertainty many people and businesses face due to the Coronavirus.
  • These include calls pretending to be from your bank or mortgage provider and an increase in loan shark activity.
  • Communities are also being urged to look out for doorstep traders. Whilst there are many genuine community groups and charities that are helping those who are most isolated, it is important to be aware of those who may be taking money under the false pretence of helping with day-to-day tasks.

Please stay vigilant and watch out for scams in your area, which often target elderly and vulnerable people within the community.

Call for Visitors to Stay Away This Easter

In the run up to the Easter Bank Holiday weekend, local authorities are reminding people of the Government advice against non-essential travel.
We really value the many thousands of visitors who come to see us each year. But the message is that now is not the time to visit our area.
Travelling here for the Easter holiday is not ‘essential travel’. If you visit you will put further unnecessary pressure on the local NHS and other community support.
Please listen to the Government advice, stay at home this Easter and we will see you all again soon when this is over.

Holiday letting providers across the county are expected to act responsibly to enforce the new regulations preventing the renting out of holiday accommodation while the Government is urging citizens to make “only essential journeys”.
