I hope you are all keeping well. I've had lots of offers from volunteers (including a dog expert!) to do shopping/collect medication etc. I've also noticed that friends and neighbours are really looking out for each other. I've compiled a list of volunteers (still coming in) - so if you need any help, please, please contact me - 01424 838414 - firstname.lastname@example.org
The NHS are sending out information to those most at risk, telling them to totally self-isolate - so our kind volunteers may well be needed soon.
Just a reminder - only take advice from trusted websites/information. You can trust the links below

PARISH COUNCIL BUSINESS
All parish councils are in "limbo" at the moment, but most business will go on. As you are probably aware the village hall is officially closed during this emergency. It is a legal requirement that all parish council meetings are held in public and virtual meetings are illegal. We are waiting for instructions from the National Association of Local Councils (NALC) and hopefully virtual meetings will be allowed during this emergency.
Planning applications - we have delegation system for these to be responded to outside of meetings. I will continue to post all applications on this website, with full links to the particular application on the RDC planning website and ask that if you wish to comment, go straight to the RDC planning website.
General Mountfield issues - please continue to contact me via email if you have concerns about enforcement, road conditions, flooding, footpaths etc.
We took Alfie for a walk in Darwell yesterday, we walk him 2 or 3 times a week there, and for the first time in 30 years I had trouble parking the car - it was absolutely packed. A lovely walk and met a few people dog walking. Everyone was very sensible, except the dogs who have no idea of personal space!
Look after yourselves and stay in touch.
Irene (Parish Clerk)
