With regret we have again closed Lewes Town Hall and the All Saints Centre to assist in minimizing risks to health in the present emergency. Following government advice for everyone to stay at home and to limit all personal contact and non-essential journeys, staff are working from home where possible and we are restricted to basic operations. Councillors continue to assist community groups and individuals in their home areas wherever possible but are following the guidance on protecting themselves and their community, staying at home unless absolutely necessary, and urge everyone to do the same. The Council can be contacted in the following ways:
- via our website: lewes-tc.gov.uk via emails to firstname.lastname@example.org
- telephone messages may be left on 01273 471469 or, if urgent: telephone 07795 573503 (calls may not be answered, but messages are regularly checked)
All our Councillors and staff wish everyone the very best during this difficult time.

If you are classed as clinically extremely vulnerable to coronavirus (often people who were previously advised to shield for medical reasons) you will soon receive a letter from the Government providing guidance. You can also find this guidance online: Guidance for the clinically extremely vulnerable or request support from Lewes District Council for vulnerable residents here
