Cllr Di Evans made her comments in a report to a meeting of the authority next week.

She said members of the community had shown they would continue to rally round to support others beyond the coronavirus crisis.

“Despite all the difficulties we have encountered we have continued to work towards a Better Burntwood to improve the town, but this has only been possible with the tremendous support we have had from community groups and voluntary organisations.

“This has enforced and demonstrated the amazing community attitude that exists here and for all those who have given up their time to help others in numerous ways, my sincere thanks go to them.

“It is important that we continue to link up with these groups as together we can achieve improvements. Please be assured that if anybody has any ideas or concerns Burntwood Town Council is willing to listen and this can be done by contacting us at the Old Mining College or by attending any meeting of the council.”

Cllr Evans also highlighted projects across Burntwood, including the work to make Burntwood a dementia-friendly town.

She added that she hoped more events would take place in the coming months and years to allow the community to come together..

“Some of the planned functions, such as the Picnic in the Park and the Christmas Event had to be cancelled in the past year due to the inclement weather, but this year we are looking towards a great event to celebrate the Platinum Jubilee of our Queen, where a large variety of exciting things are planned.

“The Play in the Parks, enjoyed by so many during the school holidays, is once again being organised after a break due to Covid.

“We have listened to requests from the community and the monthly markets are now up and running and are proving to be very successful.

“I am proud to be a resident of Burntwood as the generosity of spirit is so evident.”
