To our wonderful East Peckham community
We wanted to let you know that you are in our thoughts, and hope that you and your loved ones remain healthy and safe as we go through this trying period together. Just as I’m sure you are doing your part to take all necessary precautions to protect those around you, we’ve also taken numerous steps to help you.
We’ve always taken pride in the fact that an important purpose of East Peckham Parish Council is to provide leadership in the community and its times like this that cause all of us to reflect and reminds us how fortunate we are to live and work in East Peckham. The Parish Council will never take this special relationship for granted and know that we’re always with you…whether that is in the Parish Office, on Facebook or on our website.
