Axminster Community Emergency Response (ACER)


ACER statistics May 2020


A message from the Mayor

Axminster Town Council hosted a meeting with several community groups in response to the outbreak of Coronavirus (COVID-19). This meeting was also attended by Town, District, and County Councillors.

The Town council, in conjunction with these groups, are planning a strategy to offer support to the local community.

It will come as no surprise to our residents that we found that there is already a great deal of support in place from individual volunteers and community organisations and this can be enhanced to extend its availability where and when that becomes necessary.

There will be a dedicated phone number for residents to call for help or advice.  This number is 01297 35550.   We will be making every effort to ensure that the information gets to everyone, and as quickly as possible.  

Until we are fully up and running please continue to use your existing support.

Observe all the health advice currently available, and of course in the event of a real emergency, call the emergency services.

We’ll be with you soon.  Please bookmark this page, so you can keep an eye on updates and information that is to be added.

Stay well

Anni Young

Mayor of Axminster
