Corona Virus Update

The information from the government is clear,

STAY AT HOME - SAVE LIVES - SAVE THE NHS.

Please think before you leave home, do you really need to go?

Shop for essentials and medicine, and to help vulnerable people. Walk, run,cycle for your daily excercise, we are surrounded by paths and trails to walk safely.

In line with MBC the play park in Croxton Kerrial is closed. I know this is unfortunate during this lovely weather but as we cant be sure that the area is clean and safe then it has to be closed.

Advice from Trading Standards around help and tests being offered

Dear Members

Leicestershire Trading Standards Service are advising during this period of uncertainty regarding Covid-19, it appears that there are some people who are taking advantage of the situation.

We have heard reports that people are offering to buy essentials on behalf of the elderly and vulnerable who are self isolating. Instead are taking the money and not bringing any goods to them; This is theft. More »

We don't want to discourage anyone from helping their neighbours or family members in this time of need, and we don't want to breed distrust in those genuine members of the community trying to assist others. We simply ask that you remain vigilant and take note of this basic advice, should someone call on your door:
- try to only liaise with someone you are familiar with,
- only buy the essentials in this manner, therefore the amount of money required is minimal,
- do not hand over a bank card - use cash only,
- if the person says they are from a community group/organisation, ask for some ID or to verify their identity by calling the organisation directly.

Evidence of more scammers taking advantage of the current situation regarding Covid-19 and who are offering door to door tests. These are not legitimate and are worthless!

Whilst it seems this has not hit Leicestershire yet, we thought it best to keep you informed.
Please look out for your neighbours and family members who may not have access to Social Media and therefore will not be receiving this information.
