  1. In respect of Richmondshire councils closure of its offices – I am sure that they still expect supermarkets, refuse collectors, postal workers and deliver drivers all to continue working. Double standards!!!

  2. And Early Years Settings have to stay open. I worry for myself and my fellow workers in Early Years. We can’t stay at home and keep safe. We have to work every day in fear.

  3. Don’t make excuses for failure to empty grey bins today 8/1/21.the roads were clear around Byng Road.Bibs overflowing with Xmas waste.not good enough richmond council.
