For up to date guidance about Coronavirus visit the government website.
From Monday 17th May 2021 Buckingham, and all of England's restrictions were relaxed.
- Bars, pubs, cafes and restaurants are able to serve indoors
- Museums, soft play and cinemas can open
- Hotels and B&Bs can open for people going on holiday
- Social groups of up to 30 can meet outdoors and six or two households indoors.
The government has a more detailed guide about what the changes mean for local people on their website.
Buckingham is a great community: many groups have come together to try and work out how they can help residents in need of support. Below we have compiled local information guides, both for those who are in need of help and for those who are interested in volunteering.
Shops and services in Buckingham
Please continue to support our local shops, restaurants and businesses many of whom have had a very difficult year. Don't forget to wear a mask if you can, respect social distancing and wash your hands.
The Town Council Office is closed to visitors but staff are working from home. The Tourist Information Centre, Lace Hill Centre and Shopmobility are open but currently running differently.
COVID-19 Business Measures
Buckingham Town Council is asking companies, self-employed people and all other traders in the town to help think about what can be done to help businesses reopen when possible, support the high street and develop online sales in the town.
Parks and public spaces
Play areas, multi-use games area (MUGAs) and outdoor gym equipment are all now open!
Our green spaces staff are out and about working as normal. To keep them safe and well, please do not approach them. If you have a query, please contact the town council office and keep your distance from the green spaces team while they are working.
