We hope you find our website of value to you in providing information about your Parish Council - and your parish – which covers our three villages –Shedfield, Shirrell Heath and Waltham Chase.
The Parish Council is seeking to respond to the changes and challenges brought about by COVID-19. We have a lot of information on this website you can access. https://gov.uk/guidance/national-lockdown-stay-at-home
We are in a lockdown, please read the rules and FOLLOW them if you are using any of the open spaces and facilities in Shedfield, Shirrell Heath and Waltham Chase.
There should be no mix-household groups anywhere in the village, no group PT sessions and no sports being played in mixed-household groups.
We pass all reports on to the local police. Those people who are not taking the situation seriously really are putting the rest of us at risk.
There are helpers and volunteers that have come forward to help people with shopping for essentials and collecting medicine etc. If you don't know who is doing this for your road, then you can contact Jo, Mel and Nicky, volunteer coordinators, and they will advise and support you. Their details are on our COVID-19 page. Click on the RED banner, above. Thank you also to everyone who has offered support to enable this service to be possible.
We have had to postpone our Parish Assembly and some of our meetings, but we are now trying to hold some of them virtually and offer the opportunity for people to contribute; either remotely, or by sending an e-mail which will be discussed at the meeting. Details of the meetings will be advertised on this website.
Our recreation grounds are all open but please observe social distancing and avoid using the outdoor adult gym equipment.
Dogs may be left off their leads on Shedfield Common and the Triangle Recreation Ground in Waltham Chase.
I would like to thank our members of staff for their hard work and adjustments they have made, to those working on the Parish Council website and Facebook and to Gary our Community Service Officer who is working in the Community.
Finally, I would like to thank you all for your support of the local initiative to support those in need at this time. Moving forward, we will advertise opportunities to assist on our Facebook page and under ‘Latest News’ on the home page of our Website. Thank you all in advance for your support.
Please contact the Clerk for more details - Telephone 01329 830060 / 07918623009 or e-mail directly to the Clerk,
Councillor Margaret Jones
