Covid-19 in Redditch: Send us your questions ahead of our second Q&A next week

Ross Crawford 23rd Apr, 2021

A NEW panel of experts is ready to take your questions on Covid-19 and its impact on Redditch.

Have you got a question on Covid? Does Covid make you nervous about voting in the elections?

How have you found the relaxed restrictions?

Are ready for the next step on the roadmap?

Are you confused about the rules?

If you are a front-line worker, do you take lateral flow tests (LFTs) on a regular basis?

Have you had your vaccination?

Is your business struggling to understand the rules around how to keep Covid-safe and secure?

After the success of our last Covid Q&A, which thousands of you viewed, we’re hosting Q&A #2 next week so you can ask our panel of experts the questions that matter to you.

Working in partnership with Redditch Borough Council again, this time our top panel of guests includes Kevin Dicks, chief executive of Redditch Borough Council, Chief Inspector Edward Hancox from West Mercia Police, Nitin Sodha, founder of Knights Pharmacy, and Helen Cameron, chartered environmental health practitioner from Worcestershire Regulatory Services. Hosted by the Standard’s Tristan Harris, the Q&A is next Friday, April 30, from 5pm to 6pm on the Redditch Standard Facebook page.

If you’ve got a question, send it to and we’ll do our best to include it.

Otherwise, ask live during the chat using the comment function on Facebook. We’ll forward any live questions to Tristan in real time.

Please note the editor will omit questions which are deemed offensive or not relevant.

Mr Dicks said: “The last Q&A attracted thousands of viewers from Redditch, and we got lots of interesting questions too for our panel of experts.

“While Redditch Covid cases have reduced significantly, we need to keep up the momentum and I want to keep the dialogue going with residents about their concerns, issues and any clarification they need around subjects from changing restrictions to the forthcoming elections.

“We have got a different set of panel members this time, all bringing their own expertise to the session, so I hope we get as much interest, if not more, as last time.”
