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.

The war memorial bench will be in place on the village green for this years memorial day 8th November. It would not have been possible to purchase this beautiful bench to honour our war dead without the generous donations from villagers past and present, and Bubbenhall parish council.
In these times of the Coronavirus we are not able to hold a meeting altogether to view and bless the bench, but thought it may be a nice idea if adults and children would like to paint stones or pebbles with pictures of poppies or scenes of remembrance and place them on the spout wall so anyone passing by could see them and the bench, and be able to reflect and remember what they all gave so we might live in peacetime. You may also wish to write a dedication with your art work.
Gill Green and Margaret Robinson.
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.
HGVs on local lanes
After the installation of the new "unsuitable for HGV" signs around the village three years ago, the number of HGVs seen around the village fell, but in recent months there has been a noticeable increase in HGV traffic, so we have re-introduced the HGV survey. Please report any HGV sightings to: firstname.lastname@example.org thank you.
The minimum information required would be the date, time and the road you saw the HGV on, but if you can provide more, that would be even more useful (name of road and direction of HGV, Company name, HGV registration).
