You can spread the virus even if you don’t have symptoms. There’s full guidance on staying at home and away from others, including the only reasons why you should leave your home, on the government website:
The Town Hall in Weston-super-Mare is now closed.
If you usually come in and use one our Council Tax payment kiosks, please consider switching to online payments. There’s more information on our council tax pages:
You can also pay your Council Tax by phone. Call 01934 888 121. You will need your 10-digit council tax reference number, which you can find on your bill, and your credit or debit card.
Leisure and sports centres
All of our leisure centres are now closed. Some are making online work outs available for free and to everyone, not just members. If you have questions about your membership and any payments you might be making, please visit the centre website.
Somerset Hall, The Campus, The Playhouse and The Tropicana are all closed until further notice.
All play areas are closed. This is so any visits to parks are only for the purposes of exercise as outlined by government. Please don’t try to use any play areas.
Motex equipment and demonstration centre
Our equipment and demonstration centre (at the Motex building, Winterstoke Road, Weston-super-Mare) has closed until further notice. There will be notices on site with details of where customers can go to access council support and other providers. The telephone calls will automatically redirect to Care Connect on 01934 888 801.
Weston-super-Mare Crematorium and Cemetery
The crematorium has closed its ground to the public. Staff are continuing to deal with enquiries on the phone and by email but have stopped face to face contact. Funerals are continuing but are limited to immediate family only.
