Coronavirus COVID-19 Update

 Please remember, we should all do everything possible to try to reduce the risk of infection, to slow down the transmission of the Coronavirus (COVID-19).

There are simple things we can all do to reduce the risk of respiratory and other infections such as seasonal colds and flu such as:

  • Always carry tissues with you and use them to catch your cough or sneeze. Then bin the tissue, and wash your hands, or use a sanitiser gel.
  •  Wash your hands often with soap and water, especially after using public transport. Use a sanitiser gel if soap and water are not available.
  •  Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.
  •  Avoid close contact with people who are unwell.

If any residents have concerns regarding the Coronavirus outbreak (COVID-19), further information can be found on the NHS website:

If anyone thinks that they may have symptoms please go on-line to  the NHS 111 on-line questionnaire page:

Coffee Morning with the

Kent Police Crime Commissioner

The Parish Council has made the decision, following the latest Government advice relating to Covid-19, to postpone the coffee morning that Mr Matthew Scott, the Kent Police Crime Commissioner was due to attend on the 21st March. 

Whilst this is extremely disappointing, it is hoped that this can be rearranged later in the year.
