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:


EMERGENCY PLANNING

Nearly all emergencies affecting the local community will be dealt with routinely by a joint response from the emergency services, local authorities, health agencies and utility companies. However, in extreme conditions such as snow and flooding, there is a possibility that the emergency services and other agencies may be overwhelmed and not be able to reach us immediately.

The Parish Council's Emergency Plan is currently under review. However, a communication system remains in place since the COVID-19 pandemic.

You can contact the Clerk or Parish Councillors at any time.

Playground re-opened

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

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

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.

VE75 Change of plans!

Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, the VE75 Party and Fete was cancelled.

Instead, the community held a series of Stay at Home Street Parties, which brought the neighbours 'together' (appropriately socially distanced, of course) and helped enormously in these challenging times.

Images were captured in an article in The Leek Wootton Link:

Hopefully 2021 will bring an opportunity for the community to hold a proper Parish Summer Fete, as it will be the centenary of the Leek Wootton War Memorial Recreation Ground.
