Eaton Bray High Street resurfacing begins
After many years of campaigning and requests to have Eaton Bray High Street resurfaced, the work is scheduled to begin by Central Bedfordshire Highways week commencing 13th July for up to 20 days.
It is likely there will be a little disruption to the roads during this time.
The Parish Council urge all parishioners to check the Government’s official Coronavirus web page for advice, updates and information if you are concerned:
Eaton Bray play parks temporary closure
Following Government advice, the Eaton Bray play parks in School Lane Recreation Ground and The Rye Recreation Ground are closed.
Whilst the open space remains open for public exercise in line with the Government’s guidance, please ensure your children do not use the swings, slides and other play equipment during this time of isolation. This is to aid in the stopping of the spread of COVID-19 and we urge all parishioners to abide by this guidance.
Following the instructions around movement and gatherings from the Prime Minister on 23 March 2020, we are monitoring daily advice from the UK central government. As we understand the situation at the moment it is still permitted to visit your allotment plot, ideally on your own to take daily exercise. Therefore the Eaton Bray allotment sites at The Meads and Holmans Field remain open at present and will remain open unless we are advised otherwise.
Bower Lane cemetery restrictions
Losing a loved one is a sad and distressing experience, and funerals are important and personal. During this very difficult time for the country, the Government’s aim is to protect the most vulnerable from the spread of coronavirus.
Public Health England (PHE) have stipulated that funerals must be conducted in a manner consistent with social distancing principles to avoid the further spread of Covid-19.
We are very mindful of such a sensitive matter, however we also have to consider guidance from the Government – the key outcome is that funerals should continue, as normally as possible for now, but take into account the guidelines issued for minimising the risk of transmission.
