Cllr Yasmin Toor – Medlock Vale Ward
MY WARD PRIORITIES
· Fly Tipping
· National Covid-19 Lockdown
Work in thecommunity
The Council has been at the frontline in responding to the Covid19 pandemic; including distributing emergency food and medicine, providing vital social care, running testing centers and now rolling out the vaccine.
Throughout 2020 it also had a huge impact on the way that the Council and councillors worked.
Instead of attending meetings on your behalf at Oldham Civic Centre, all meetings have been held virtually, accessed via phone or laptop. I have undertaken training on using this technology so that I could continue to represent you throughout this difficult time.
In my ward I have had to scale back the amount of work I can do in the community due to not being able to get out and about, but I have still been available by e-mail or telephone for people to contact me if they have problems they would like my assistance with.
I have kept in touch with local community groups as much as possible, particularly on social media, and I look forward to becoming more active in the area again when restrictions are finally lifted.
