We are not able to hold Group Citizenship Ceremonies due to the Coronovirus (Covid-19) pandemic. We will instead hold individual ceremonies.

Changes the to Registration Services.

We are taking action to maintain services and prioritise key areas during the coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic. 

However in line with government advice on social distancing, we are having to make some changes to our services. 

If you (or anyone in your household) is showing any symptoms including a fever and/or a continuous cough, please do not visit the Register Office.
