The Prime Minister has said that everyone in the UK should now avoid non-essential travel and contact with others, therefore we will be suspending our Parish Council meetings until further notice. This will be for an undetermined period of time and will remain under review in line with our Local Councils advice. The Clerk and Councillors will remain in contact and continue to carry out works on behalf of the Parish where possible. Please contact the clerk with any concerns.

In line with Government Guidelines the Play Area in Birmingham Road is open for exercise only. The Play equipment and adult gym equipment are not to be used and have been taped off.

We publicised a note asking for volunteers to come forward who were willing to support their neighbours during this time of crisis. We were overwhelmed by over 30 residents contacting the clerk and offering to help. We allocated neighbours to volunteers and they had the following note to update and distribute around the Parish. Please advise if you have not had one of these notes and need support.

Health advice for us all

We are in this together and we can all help limit the spread of COVID-19 by following the Government laws on social distancing, which mean:

  • Only leave the house in very limited circumstances - shopping for essentials, meeting urgent medical needs and taking part in one form of solo exercise per day.
  • Ensuring when you are out of the house that you maintain a distance of two metres from other people.
  • Take extra care if you are over 70 years of age, if you are pregnant or have underlying health conditions.
  • To find out more about social distancing visit: Government guidance on social distancing.

Supporting our most vulnerable residents

As part of a county-wide effort to support the most vulnerable, Warwickshire County Council’s Fire and Rescue Service along with other services will be working to deliver care and food packages to those most in need. No direct contact will be made with residents, as this will be a knock-door service, and all staff will maintain the social distances advised, to ensure they can deliver an essential service to those who can’t get out. As well as delivering food and essential requirements, our staff will also ensure that resident are safe, well and managing ok.
