HM Government has ordered all play equipment including swings, climbing frames, fitness equipment and tennis courts to close with immediate effect. This is because they are a known way for the COVID-19 virus to spread. The Parish Council has been instructed to follow this direction. As such all the parish facilities will be closed from today until such time that we are instructed they can re-open. We would ask you please to follow this advice. The Government has made it clear that the Police will be enforcing this ban and will be visiting our parish.
We have already had requests for help through the BCS Covid-19 Response. Following the Government announcement yesterday we would urge all residents to please only use this service as a safety net for items that are essential and cannot be accessed through other means. For example, the Village Stores can arrange home delivery of food. We would also ask you to give us as much notice as possible (preferably two days) for collection of medicines etc. so that we can co-ordinate our response. We would also ask you to be flexible with your requests as the few shops that are still open have limited stocks. In this way, we can also reduce the risk of spreading the virus to our volunteers.
