Parish Clerk

We are still looking for a replacement for our Parish Clerk, Richard Parrey, who has been planning to retire from the role for many months now. Richard has decided that May will be his final month. We urgently need to find someone who lives in or near Kingston on Soar to take on this role. The role does come with a modest remuneration. If anyone is interested, then please contact Councillor Mark Johnson or Richard Parrey in the first instance for further information.

Please take the time to complete the questionnaire (link below) and post it through the letterbox of your nearest Parish Councillor (contact details are always on the last page of the newsletter).

Covid-19 update

Nottinghamshire, alongside the rest of the nation, is currently under strict lockdown restrictions requiring people to stay at home as much as possible.

By being cautious when making any journeys, asking ourselves if our journey is necessary, we can help to stop the spread of Covid-19:

  • You must not leave your house unless you have reasonable excuse i.e. work, education, shopping, care responsibilities, medical reasons, outdoors exercise or to visit your support bubble if you are a single person household
  • If you must travel remain local and look to reduce journeys
  • Walk or cycle where possible
  • Avoid car sharing with anyone outside your household or support bubble
  • If using public transport, plan ahead and avoid travelling at peak times and on busy routes
  • It is essential you wear a face covering for the entirety of your journey when using public transport, including when waiting at stops unless exempt
  • Keep your distance from others as best you can
  • Always wash your hands before/after travelling and use available sanitising points
  • International travel is only permitted when you have legal reason
