Parish Council Notices
The national census is due on 21st March 2021. The census is compulsory, and this year will be mainly online, but with support for those who will find this challenging. There is more information in this official booklet
National restrictions from 5 November
COVID-19 case numbers are rising rapidly across the whole of the UK and in other countries. The single most important action we can all take to fight coronavirus is to stay at home, to protect the NHS and save lives.
When we reduce our day-to-day contact with other people, we reduce the spread of the infection. That is why, from Thursday 5 November until Wednesday 2 December, you must:
- Stay at home, except for specific purposes.
- Avoid meeting people you do not live with, except for specific purposes.
- Close certain businesses and venues.
These new measures will reduce the growth rate of the virus, which will:
- prevent the NHS from being overwhelmed
- ensure schools, colleges and universities can stay open
- ensure that as many people as possible can continue to work
The Bubbenhall Emergency Committee has organised a team of volunteers to support villagers during these difficult times. If you are not able to go out and need help with shopping, fetching medical supplies, posting letters or just having a friendly chat with someone, please contact one of the people below:
- Bob Powell 02476 303433
- Tony Cox 07803 782713
- Jan Lucas 07847 015154
You can help to protect your friends and family by downloading the NHS COVID-19 App to keep updated on the latest guidance from Thursday 5 November.
There is separate guidance for households with a possible or confirmed coronavirus infection.

Spring Water on the Green
Please note that the water from the pump on the green has been tested recently and coliform bacteria has been found in it. Coliform in itself is not dangerous, but it could signify other pathogens, and so the Parish Council are recommending that the water should not be drunk. The Parish Council will be monitoring the water, with the aid of WDC environmental health, and any changes will be notified here.
Please note also that the water from the spout is definitely not drinkable, and never will be
Make the right call
Warwickshire Police have launched a series of help and advice pages and donwloadable leaflets in the contact section of their website. The information is there to support members of the public in 'making the right call' in the event of something happening and to make the right call to the right service first time. This, in turn, will reduce the number of calls going in to the Warwickshire Police communications centre, meaning that the staff are available for the Grade 1 emergency calls and to reduce the waiting time for anyone calling on 101.

New permissive paths in Bubbenhall Wood
In 2016, Bubbenhall Wood and Bubbenhall Meadow (the land between Ryton Pools and Bubbenhall Wood) were bought by Warwickshire Wildlife Trust. Their aim is to give greater access to the countryside and as part of this plan they have opened up two new permissive paths:
1. From Shrubs Lodge across Bubbenhall Meadow, finishing in Pagets Lane opposite the new entrance to Bubbenhall Wood.
2. A circular walk around Bubbenhall Wood, accessible either from the new entrance in Pagets Lane, or from Middle Ride (the existing public footpath)
Please note that dogs are required to be kept on a lead at all times, and kept well away from the pools in the meadow.
Please remember that parking in Pagets Lane causes problems for local residents.
