Dear Residents and families,

Following the Government announcement last night of a positive case of COVID-19 in the community, we are now in  Alert Level 4 lockdown for the next three days.

I am very confident our Village Family will pull together once again to keep our village safe and we thank you for your ongoing patience and support.

Stay home, Stay Safe

All residents are strongly urged to stay home and stay safe. Please talk to village staff if you need assistance with groceries or other supplies. We do however encourage using family members where possible to help drop groceries and other items off to you, using the safe distancing rule at all times.

Whilst we are in Alert Level 4, there will be no visitors allowed at our village and care home, nor any mingling or gatherings of residents.

All communal village facilities will be closed, and group activities will be cancelled until further notice.

Care Home

There is no care home visitation.

A reminder of COVID-19 symptoms:

  • a cough
  • an elevated temperature (at least 37.5˚C)
  • shortness of breath
  • a sore throat
  • sneezing and runny nose
  • temporary loss of smell and taste
  • conjunctivitis

If you have any of these symptoms, please stay at home and contact your GP or call the COVID-19 Healthline on 0800 358 5453 to arrange a COVID-19 test.
