Covid-19 update

Measures for England outlined recently by the Prime Minister have now come into force in an attempt to reduce the number of transmissions and protect the NHS from rising hospital admissions.

The national COVID-19 measures are outlined here.

The current advice is listed below.

Stay at home

This means you must not leave or be outside of your home except for specific purposes. These include:

  • for childcare or education, where this is not provided online
  • for work purposes, where your place of work remains open and where you cannot work from home (including if your job involves working in other people’s homes)
  • to exercise outdoors or visit an outdoor public place – with the people you live with, with your support bubble or, when on your own, with one person from another household
  • for any medical concerns, reasons, appointments and emergencies, or to avoid or escape risk of injury or harm – such as domestic abuse
  • shopping for basic necessities, for example food and medicine, which should be as infrequent as possible
  • to visit members of your support bubble or provide care for vulnerable people, or as a volunteer

Stay safe outside the home

You should minimise time spent outside your home and when around other people ensure that you are two metres apart from anyone not in your household or support bubble.

Remember – ‘Hands. Face. Space’:

  • hands – wash your hands regularly and for 20 seconds
  • face – wear a face covering in indoor settings where social distancing may be difficult, and where you will come into contact with people you do not normally meet
  • space – stay 2 metres apart from people you do not live with where possible, or 1 metre with extra precautions in place (such as wearing face coverings or increasing ventilation indoors)

Meeting with family and friends

You must not meet socially indoors with family or friends unless they are part of your household or support bubble.

You can exercise or visit outdoor public places with the people you live with, your support bubble, or one person from another household (children under school age and those dependent on round-the-clock care, such as those with severe disabilities will not count.)

Outdoor public places include:

  • parks and the countryside,
  • public gardens and allotments
  • playgrounds

You cannot meet in a private garden.

Annual Parish Meetings

Due to Government Coronavirus Regulations that ban meetings of more than two people,

the Annual Parish Meeting and the Parish Council AGM will NOT now take place on 5th May.

Fairham Development

The planned development on Fairham Pastures, south of Clifton, is officially to be called Fairham.  A ‘drop-in’ public exhibition on the proposals for the first phase of the planned £100m infrastructure plans including new roads and access off Mill Hill roundabout was held in Barton in Fabis and Gotham.

The website www.fairhamlife.co.uk provides more information, including copies of the boards used in the exhibitions.

Garden Walkabout – Kingston on Soar and Sutton Bonington

This year’s Garden Walkabout, in aid of Cancer Research UK, took place on 16th and 17th June.  The event was a great success, in spite of the weather, and raised over £5,000.  Many thanks to everyone who opened their gardens, served teas, baked cakes and donated plants for the stalls!  For the first time, there was a live band performance in Kingston Village Hall.
