Welcome to Tring Town Council’s website.
Due to the Covid-19 Coronavirus pandemic, and in accordance with Government instructions, we have taken the difficult decision to close the Tring Town Council Office and the Information Centre to the public until further notice. However, we are working remotely, and we will attempt to deal effectively with all enquiries by phone (there is an answer machine message facility), e-mail, or via this website (see ‘contact information’ page at the bottom of the list on the left). As and when we receive updated information about local services, we will add links below, to keep you in the picture about the great work that is being done in the local community.

If you have concerns about your own health and well-being in respect of Covid-19, please do not go to your GP, pharmacy or hospital. If you need to, use the online ‘111’ service at http://www.nhs.uk/coronavirus. – please only actually phone 111 if you cannot get help from the online service.
Here are some links to further useful contacts that you may find helpful during this crisis:
Perhaps the most important being:
“Herts Help” on 0300 123 4044 or online at Herts Help can provide a range of help and advice to members of the public, care providers, and voluntary sector organisations alike. This includes the provision of support for people who are self-isolating, and advice for people living and working in residential and home care settings. You can also tell them about someone who needs help, or who you’re worried about. They will try to find the best possible sources of help to meet your concerns.

News from Dacorum Community Action
We are now offering those who are vulnerable, including those vulnerable people who live in Tring, the opportunity to have their shopping delivered by one of our volunteers. We are open to people who are either over 70 and able to afford shopping but reluctant to venture out, or those who are unable to do their shopping for other reasons that do not qualify them for Operation Shield support. To find out more, contact http://www.communityactiondacorum.org
Operation Sustain. We have been coordinating the recruitment of volunteers in Dacorum for Operation Sustain. If you are interested in volunteering, please go to http://bit.ly/TeamHertS and we will help you find something to do. If you run a charity in Tring and are in need of help, contact http://www.communityactiondacorum.org
Supporting Community Groups. We are currently contacting small pop-up community groups to help them with training and to help them to think about how they safeguard themselves and others. We also don’t want to stop people helping so we want avoid duplicating work in areas where the local community has it covered. For information, get in touch with Matt Hatton at http://www.communityactiondacorum.org
Where possible, our wonderful local businesses and groups are doing everything they can to keep things going and provide a service to customers, even if things have to be different for a while. Click on the link below to check what’s happening.

Tring Town Council provides a valuable service for the community and represents the town’s interests in various ways. Working effectively and professionally with both the Borough and County Councils as well as other stakeholders, we ensure that the interests and assets of Tring are protected.
Part of our role is to enhance and promote the cultural life and wellbeing of Tring. We seek to improve the local environment, raising standards of recreational facilities and helping to meet the community’s needs.
The Town Council welcomes input from Tring residents and everyone is encouraged to attend the Council’s meetings. We have various responsibilities, which include managing the town’s allotments, discussing and commenting on planning applications in the town (Dacorum Borough Council has the final decision on planning issues), managing the Council’s properties in the town, and monitoring the town’s public areas.
We also support Tring by providing small grants to voluntary and community groups in the town, and through a range of initiatives such as the Tring Youth Council and Tring Together.
Heritage Trail App for Tring: Tring Local History and Museum Society have provided the superb Tring Heritage Trail in both App and leaflet format. It guides locals and visitors alike around the fabulous heritage sites of Tring, and includes additional circular walks in the immediate area.
