GNOSALL PARISH COUNCIL

 

(INCLUDING THE WARDS OF MORETON AND KNIGHTLEY

As life slowly gets back to normal….

We are all thankful that many of us, at long last, can now socialise with family and friends (socially distanced of course) but we must remember the virus has not gone away and we have to adhere to the updated rules and regulations that now apply. The Parish Council is grateful to parishioners for their cooperation and understanding when village facilities were closed and for adhering to the rules as and when restrictions were lifted and facilities were gradually put back into use.

Recreation areas must still be used with caution and it is imperative that users wash their hands after using the park and other facilities. For the time being the Grosvenor Centre remains closed as it is still not viable to open. Regulations are being monitored closely for both the Grosvenor Centre and also GG’s Youth Club. As soon as the Council is confident they can be opened and users kept safe, messages will be sent out on social media and displayed on notice boards.

Work in the parish office is also getting back to normal, two virtual council meetings have been held and projects that were put on hold at the beginning of lockdown are now resuming – the sensory garden, enhancement of the Grosvenor Centre and resurfacing of the play area car park are projects being given priority.

Thanks must too be extended to the local shops, pubs, takeaway outlets and other businesses that did their very best during lockdown to provide services and continue to do so in unfamiliar working conditions. Remember, if you can, support our local businesses including those that have recently reopened to give them a helpful boost.

Over 84’s teas

As the Grosvenor Centre remains closed and bearing in mind the ages of those who attend the afternoon teas, the September tea party will not take place. It is evident how much enjoyment these events bring to both attendees and volunteers and as soon as it is safe to do so, they will resume.

Parish Hotline

The support given during the COVID pandemic in our village has been incredible and well documented on social media, the commemorative edition of GMK and the last two editions of GPN. Julie Clayton will be cooking and providing meals for £1 until at least the end of August.

The parish hotline, set up in March and was very busy during March, April and May, is now quiet as those people needing help either contact their regular helper or contact the parish office in other ways. Therefore the hotline will close at the end of July. The parish office is open Monday – Thursday to take calls on 01785 822685 or email clerk@gnosallparishcouncil.org.uk so if anyone does need help, that can still be arranged.

Councillor Vacancy

Following the resignation of Cllr Vicky Kessey in April, there is now a vacancy on the Parish Council. Currently information is awaited from Stafford Borough Council on when the position can be filled however if anyone would like to make tentative enquires about what is involved, please get in touch.
