The Government has set out its plan to ease restrictions in a number of ways from 4th July. Included in the list of places that may now re-open are outdoor gyms and playgrounds. The Government Guidance is clear that these moves should be taken only if we can ensure that we ‘continue to protect our communities and our NHS’. The virus is still out there.
We have carried out the required risk assessment and we have studied the legal obligations relating to health and safety. We have also consulted with our District Council. In the light of all these factors, the Parish Council has decided to keep the children’s playground and village hall carpark closed until further notice. The situation will be reviewed regularly during the summer.
We realise that this will disappoint many people. We ask for your patience and that you respect the requirement to stay away from the play equipment.
Please note also that the Village Hall will not be open until the 1st September at the earliest.
The emergency committtee have organised a team of volunteers to support those who are self-isolating. Please contact one of the people below if you are willing to volunteer, or if you need to self-isolate and would like some support.

Do watch national news and/or listen to the radio to keep up to date with government advice and recommendations.
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).
