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.

We can all help control the virus if we all stay alert. This means you must:
- Stay at home as much as possible
- Work from home if you can
- Limit contact with other people
- Keep your distance if you go out (2 metres apart where possible)
- Wash your hands regularly
Self-isolate if you or anyone in your household has symptoms.
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: email@example.com 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).
