When we reduce our day-to-day contact with other people, we reduce the spread of the infection. That is why the government has now introduced three new measures; 1. Requiring people to stay at home, except for very limited purposes

2. Closing non-essential shops and community spaces

3. Stopping all gatherings of more than two people in public

In Fillongley this means that everyone should stay at home unless travelling to work, essential shopping, taking one exercise per day or helping vulnerable people.

The Recreation Ground in Church Lane is still open for use but FPC would ask people not to use the play equipment, to only go with members of their own household and to maintain a distance of 2 metres from anyone else they may see.

The Parish Council recognise that many people have close friends and family in the Parish who are able to help them in times of need. It is a mark of the strength of our community that a lot of people have also come forward as volunteers willing to help others that they don’t know. You should have received a note from one/two of them through your door. If you need help, please don’t be afraid to ask. The Clerk also has a list of other people waiting in the wings to help out too. 01676 549193 or join the Fillongley Parish Council Group Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/groups/438817562973319/

In coming days you may receive your Parish Magazine – the deadline for entries is always the 10th of the month before publication, and surprising as it may seem, on 10th March we were all carrying on with normal life. This has changed swiftly and dramatically. There will be no meetings at the village hall, no clubs, scouting or guiding, no open pubs, no formal church services (though check the information for access for private prayer), no Easter Egg Drop and no VE celebrations. Some local businesses are offering some delivery services and FPC would urge you to support local businesses whenever you can (Corona Virus Pandemic or not!).

We have a great community. Let’s work together.

If you need any help with regards to problems caused by self-isolating e.g. Shopping etc.
