Letter from the Mayor of Tring, Autumn 2020

Living Magazines Tring Mayor Roxanne Ransley

Dear Tring,

Now that lockdown is easing and life in Tring returns to a new normal, it is important that we remember how fortunate we are. The majority of the people of Tring have stayed well; our sympathies go to the family and friends of those who lost their lives or were very ill in the pandemic.

As a community we have stayed strong and supportive. The community spirit that we found during lockdown will help us to stay close knit and a town that others will envy.

I know that some of you have found it very difficult and I encourage you to seek help. I hope that we will all continue to support the businesses in Tring and surrounding villages. Tring Town Council will continue to support the High Street and encourage local enterprises where it can. We are working with larger councils and prompting national government to help.

Unfortunately, during this period Councillor John Bowden, a Tring and a Dacorum Councillor, passed away. He will be missed for his determination to help those in his ward and his work as Chairman of the management committee of Tring Community Centre.

Many people have visited our wonderful areas of natural beauty, unfortunately, some have not been careful about their litter. During the autumn I will arrange litter picks around the town and liaise with others in outlying areas.

You can contact the Mayor at any time at admin@tring.gov.uk.

Roxanne Ransley, Mayor, Tring Town Council
