Updates issued by Sue Reece (870618) and Mick Fletcher (870531) on behalf of the parish council:

We hope everyone is keeping safe and well; we have four items here:

VE Day Commemoration

As most will be aware it is only one week to VE Day and although official celebrations have had to be cancelled it is still possible to join in a collective commemoration from the safety of your own home. This notice  https://www.veday75.org/  from the organisers of the commemoration suggests ways in which people can still participate, including a two minute silence at 11.00 am on Friday 8th May and a toast at 3.00pm the same day.

What can I do under lockdown?

A number of people have talked about a lack of clarity in relation to what can and cannot be done under the lockdown regulations.  That message has clearly got through to government who have today published a set of answers to frequently asked questions about what is and is not permitted.  The guidance is available here  https://tinyurl.com/ybvwyqwr

Healthy Start.

Since we published details of the Friendly Society scheme of financial support for individuals and families whose income has been hit by coronavirus our attention has been drawn to the ‘Healthy Start’ scheme which provides free milk and fresh produce for those with children under four who are in receipt of certain benefits.  Since the economic impact of Covid-19 may affect families unfamiliar with aspects of the benefits system we are providing a link to the scheme here. https://www.healthystart.nhs.uk/

Last chance to adopt a pole

At the time of writing only two substantially used telegraph poles remain to be adopted – one on Station Road and one at the bottom of Perch Hill; the White Noticeboard on Stoneleigh might also be counted as an honorary pole.  Move quickly if you want to enter the competition for staple recycling
