Springwatch on the Common for April May and June has sadly been postponed  till 2021 . We live in tricky times so as a group gathering, it has had to go, however, Spring fortunately has not.

Besides our resident Thrushes,Tits, Finches and alike I am already hearing Blackcap, Chiff Chaff  around the area now along with a trio of Skylarks over The Ashwells and Gomm Valley fields. The lengthening days will soon welcome Swallows and Martins to the pond area, keep your ears and eyes peeled for those first sightings and make a note of the date. If we can all do this whilst taking our daily exercise in line with the government guide lines, then we may be able to compile a more comprehensive “Village C19 list” for this year. Not quite the original intention but will be a worthwhile exercise and will enable us to further enjoy our daily walk.

Please print off a copy of the attached and fill it in with any notes you may feel are relevant. We can then all have a big pow wow get together in the fall with a bit of luck and compare notes over a few pints, hopefully in a Pub !!

Reverend Mike Bisset has provided a short statement confirming St Margarets and Holy Trinity churches are closed.

“Sadly, I must report that all churches have been instructed to close by the government so the doors are now locked. Our website has a short service that you can use at home if you wish at https://holytrinityandstmargarets.co.uk/recent-sermons/a-service-for-home/

Please pray for all those who are ill and all those who are alone and all those who are doing their best to care for us and keep us safe.”

To all residents of Penn and Tylers Green:

Friday 20 March

Representatives from several local community groups met this week to formulate a plan to try and co-ordinate a response to the current difficult Coronavirus situation.

Our aim is to ensure that our residents can readily access help when they need it. We want to set up  a system that provides a two-way method of communication, including for those without access to the internet or social media and which gives people access to trusted contacts close to them.

We are very aware that people have contacted friends and neighbours to offer practical and emotional assistance and we would encourage this to continue. We would especially like to ensure that the more vulnerable and isolated in our community feel they have a known, friendly face to turn to, especially if they are unable to leave home.

As a result, we aim to create the following:

  • A network of area co-ordinators that can receive and disseminate information to and from their immediate neighbourhood in a timely and efficient manner.
  • A centralised list of people willing to provide help…perhaps to collect shopping, distribute prescriptions, post letters, walk dog etc. We see this being managed by each local group.
  • A mechanism to tap into other community efforts and to co-ordinate a response to changing circumstances as time goes on.

To kick things off please complete the questionnaire using this link –http://tiny.cc/ptgtogether  to help us understand what communication channels are already in place (WhatsApp, neighbourhood watch etc) and to identify individuals willing to help co-ordinate activity and to provide broader assistance. 

We will not share personal information with other agencies/organisations without the permission of individuals. 

To help us put in place an initial plan, please respond by the end of Sunday 22 March. You may receive several requests to complete this form – please only do it once!

We will post updates in Village Voice and on the following websites and social media accounts which we believe are trusted sources of information for our residents: 

Thank you
