The advice about using green spaces has changed again leaving an air of confusion in its wake! Devon County Council has sent this reminder of the do’s and don’ts. In England you can leave your home for exercise and recreation with members of your household or groups of up to six people from outside your household. The government has published a list of things you can do while outside. You can travel any distance to the countryside/beach but you can’t stay overnight, campsites etc are still closed here. The advice is still to stay at home as much as possible. Remember that when you are out, your actions can affect other people and their lives and livelihood. Respect local authorities and the measures they have in place, maintaining social distancing at all times. Check facilities are open before traveling, and park sensibly, and don’t park in drives/gateways etc. Do not park in such a way that you block entrances or impede the emergency services.
Morrisons in Kingsbridge does a valuable job of recycling items. They accept carrier bags, cereal bags, plastic bottles, to name but a few – there is a list in store of items they will and will not collect.
The recycling centres are now admitting more types of vehicles and waste, check the village website for more details. Health protection measures are still in place including a one in one out policy and a two metre social distancing.
It was announced last weekend that churches and places of worship will be able to open for private prayer from next week, June 15th, a welcome sign, but as yet there is no start date for full church services to resume.
Our local organisations are still doing a great job of providing for our community. Our shop is open between 9am-3pm with the post office taking parcels etc until 11am, the Fisherman’s Rest is still doing marvelous take-aways, so please ring to order, menu choices on the village website! The Vicar Matt Rowland is holding his superb online services, much enjoyed by both regular worshippers and some new devotees!!
