Coronavirus: Help in Buckingham

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.
