FOLLOWING government advice, Slough Borough Council has decided to cancel even more events.

The council recently took drastic measures to reduce the transmission of the coronavirus by postponing or cancelling events to protect the most vulnerable.

Now another wave of changes to services and event cancellations have been announced following a long list of cancelled events such as the VE Day celebration released on March 18.

However, public buildings such as the Curve and MyCouncil will remain open to the public.

Schools are now closed across the UK following the education secretary, Gavin Williamson MP, announcement.
