Babraham Parish Council
In the week of 23 March, the Government introduced stringent measures to contain the Coronavirus outbreak. Even so, we have seen many more cases and, sadly, more deaths.
Babraham is a village we all delight in and we hope that our community will act together to support one another and help to resolve the outbreak.
We’ll use these pages for local information and links to national resources.
In the meantime, we wish you well and hope that you can keep safe.
Stuart Laurie, Chair
Rob Attwood, Jane Goody, Charlotte Roger, Gareth Walker, Councillors

What is my Council doing?
Babraham Parish Councillors agreed unanimously at their meeting on 12 March 2020 to provide support to Parishioners with shopping and prescriptions and distributed a leaflet to the village outlining the offer. Contact information for councillors can be found on the Parish Council page.
What About Council meetings?
The Government has legislated to allow for remote voting until 7 May 2021: Parish Council and other public body meetings can be held remotely. Local government legislation formerly stipulated that councillors must be physically present to vote.
The legislation allows for committee meetings to go ahead where members and any members of the public attending remotely can all times “hear (and where possible see) and be heard (and where possible be seen) by the other members in attendance”.
