Birth registrations back on at the Town Hall

England is now in lockdown again. A number of businesses must close and there are more restrictions on meeting people. Find out what this means for you.

Births can once again be registered at Middlesbrough Town Hall in the latest easing of the pandemic lockdown restrictions.

The town's Register Office has been closed to the public since the measures came into effect in Middlesbrough, with only a limited service in operation.

However following the latest changes by the Government, anyone who has had baby in Middlesbrough in February, March or April can register the birth from Wednesday, July 1.

Access to the Town Hall remains limited in line with ongoing advice around social distancing and general Covid-19 safety guidelines.

Appointments for those born in May or June will be made available within the next few weeks.

Principal Registrar Dawn Galloway said: "These have been unprecedented times, not just for the Register Office but for the whole town.

"I'm grateful for the patience and understanding that people have shown, which has helped our staff enormously in such a challenging situation.

"We anticipate that demand for appointments will be high, but we will do our very best to accommodate everyone as soon as possible."

To make an appointment call the Register Office on 01642 729004, or for more information, visit the Register Office update page.

Anyone who feels they have exceptional reasons to register their baby sooner, is asked to contact the office to speak to a member of staff.
