We're going to take the big step of removing the dedicated CORONAVIRUS page from our website - we're being positive about restrictions getting lifted!  

Limited information will now be posted on this page about the 'virus and changes that will affect our parish specifically.


From 19th July almost all of the restrictions related to COVID will be lifted. However, Government guidance will set out how people can manage the risks to themselves and to others by:

  1. Meeting in well-ventilated areas where possible, such as outdoors or indoors with windows open.
  2. Wearing a face covering where you come into contact with people you don’t normally meet in enclosed and crowded spaces.
  3. Washing your hands with soap and water or using hand sanitiser regularly throughout the day.
  4. Covering your nose and mouth when you cough and sneeze.
  5. Staying at home if unwell, to reduce the risk of passing on other illnesses onto friends, family, colleagues, and others in your community.
  6. Considering individual risks, such as clinical vulnerabilities and vaccination status

The Government stated they will review this advice and guidance in September. 

So, there's a new version of the Countryside Code leaflet been produced to help try to protect everyone using our outdoor spaces.  Most of the parish's footpaths are signposted and have colours arrows showing designations - if in doubt please assume the footpath is for walkers only.  We're also asking people to keep an eye on their dogs - not only in relation to livestock but also as a lot of our footpaths are on steep slopes or cliff edges and we have had a spate of callouts to The Coastguard and Rescues Services to retrieve dogs who have fallen.
