Rempstone Parish Council and Village Hall

Coronavirus Working Party – Newsletter 28 



After 14 months the Coronavirus Working Party is closing down. This month sees the re-opening of the White Lion and the Village Hall, with the expectation of remaining lockdown restrictions being removed through June and July. The Village Hall windows have already been tidied up, and the Bird Trail removed. The final village quiz will be published next week.

This is also the final issue of the Coronavirus newsletter. However, the Parish Council has agreed to sponsor a regular monthly Rempstone Newsletter which tells you what is going on in the village. We are looking for someone who would like to produce the newsletter each month. If you are interested then please contact Roland for details.

    Rempstone Parish Council
  •   The volume, speed, and noise of traffic on the A6006 is by far the biggest concern voiced by residents. The council is setting up a working party to deal with this. It is expected to be a long term campaign.

  •   Wild flower seeds have arrived at last. The earliest planting opportunity will be in the autumn. The Parish Council is also considering spring flowering bulbs, and how this will affect mowing of roadside verges.

  •   Several residents have already shown interest in the vacancy on the Parish Council created by the resignation of Victoria Phillipps.

    If you are interested in finding out more about any of these topics then please contact Rebecca Hague 07795 246923, our Parish Clerk, or any Parish Council member.

    All Saints Church holds services on the second and fourth Sundays of every month, starting at 11:00. Further information from Richard Beeby 880260.

The White Lion will re-open at 5 pm on Monday 17th May. Customers will need to sign in for Track and Trace, and wear a face mask when not seated.

Food Bank. Claire Johnson would like to thank everyone who is donating to local food banks. Since we started in November last year Rempstone residents have donated 1329.46kg of food and toiletries. This doesn’t include baby bank items, which aren’t weighed. Nor does it include the non-grocery items that have been, hats, kitchenware, bedding.

There are two ways that you can continue to contribute:

  •   Food and groceries can be left with Claire Johnson at 21 Wysall Lane,

    07432 055 694.

    food from a cash-and-carry store.

    From our foreign correspondent:

  • Wymeswold Bowls Club is offering taster sessions between 2:00 and

    5:00pm on Sunday 30th May. Contact 07429

    330 559 for more information.

  • East Leake Market takes place on Friday 11th June, from 3:00 to

    8:00pm. See for more information.



    The last fourteen months have been difficult for many people in the country. We have been fortunate to live in a village like Rempstone, where we know our neighbours, and have gardens and countryside walks to enjoy even at the height of lockdown. There have been days when Wysall Lane has been busier than Trafalgar Square.

    Many people have told me how lucky we are to live here. I tell them they are wrong! We chose to live here, and we have contributed to making our village what it is today. Thank you for doing that.

    Lastly I’d like to thank the Coronavirus Working Party members: Nicki Dalton, Caroline Gower, Michael Hunter, Wilf Pearson, Victoria Phillipps, and Jane Schober, for all the time and energy they have contributed over the last year.

Lockdown Restrictions Ease - Step 2 of the Spring Roadmap 



From the second week of April,pubs, restaurants, non-essential shops, hairdressers and gyms have reopened after England moved into  step two of the roadmap out of lockdown on April 12.


Further details may be found on Spring Roadmap 


The roadmap forms the four key steps over four months to bring the UK completely out of lockdown. It is underpinned by four key “tests” that are linked to data, which will act like a checklist that must be met before moving on to the next step of reopening.


Step one, part one applied to all of England from March 8, with the second part from March 29.


Following Step 2 from April 12 step three will be introduced no earlier than May 17.  


Step four, which will come into force no earlier than June 21, should see "all legal limits on social contact" lifted. 


The Office for National Statistics (ONS) findings, which on March 30  suggest there is widespread immunity either due to previous infection or vaccination.


As of April 11, a total of 32,121,353 people have received one dose of the vaccine, with over 7.4m having received both jabs. Completing inoculation of the nearly 30m Britons between doses is the government's priority.
