You cannot leave your home to meet socially with anyone, except with your household or support bubble (if eligible to form one). Stay 2 metres apart from anyone not in your household or support bubble.



You may exercise on your own, with your household or support bubble, or with one person from another household (when on your own). Stay 2 metres apart from anyone not in your household or support bubble.



Hospitality closed aside from sales by takeaway (until 11pm), click-and-collect, drive-through or delivery. Alcohol cannot be purchased through takeaway or click-and-collect from hospitality venues.

 Happy New Year


Twelfth Night - The village Christmas tree is coming down on Tuesday 5th. If you are taking down your own tree the advice from Rushcliffe Borough Council is “If you subscribe to our garden waste collections, please leave your real Christmas Tree next to your green bin and we’ll collect it on your normal collection day.



You can also take your real Christmas Tree to your local Recycling Centre or donate good condition, plastic trees to charity shops for others to reuse next year.” Rempstone’s collection is 19th/20th January.


Christmas entries in the Picture Gallery will also come down. This month we are looking for winter scenes. If you have suitable photographs then we can arrange to print them for you. Please contact Jane.


Lost Property - A hearing aid, in its case, has been found on the Welfare field. If you know whose it might be then please contact Wilf Pearson.
