Coronavirus Information

I have set this page up to help the people of Knaresborough through this difficult time. I want everyone in Knaresborough to know they are not alone. We are a strong community who will come together to help each other through this crisis.

This page will include anything that will be useful to the community and will include general information that may affect residents, travel information, cancellation of events, voluntary groups helping out during this crisis and other genuine offers of help. 

I would also like to hear from businesses who are running special help for customers or businesses who sadly have to close.

If you are a business who is trading normally then I don't need to put this on the page.

Thank you and keep safe and please email me at any time. [email protected]
