Coronavirus (COVID-19) Response

It is important in these unprecedented times that we all take stock of where we are and what we are doing in the difficult circumstances that confront us.

The Parish Council, together with the Church and Neighbourhood Watch are coordinating a ‘Street Champion’ system, breaking the parish down into smaller areas where Champion teams can check on neighbours who may be vulnerable and/or self-isolating to help by collecting shopping or prescriptions, post letters, pass on news or advice (if they don’t have internet access) or anything else they may need.

Street Champions may contact residents directly, but if you are seeking help or would like to volunteer, here are the COVID-19 Response Team’s contact details and they will be able to put you in touch with someone who can help:

In an ever-changing situation, further information is available here:


Playground re-opened

The playground in Leek Wootton has re-opened this afternoon.

COVID-19 guidance has been provided, because the playground is not staffed and the Parish Council would be grateful if adults would follow this:

We would like to thank everyone for their patience as measures have been put in place.

The playground will remain closed until further notice and all play equipment has been taped up.

Leek Wootton Children's Playground - currently closed

Following the example of Warwick District Council, which is carrying out a phased re-opening of outdoor facilities, the PC is hoping to open soon, with guidance for users, following a thorough risk assessment to ensure compliance with Government guidelines.

The PC is grateful to all users for their patience.
