Important Covid updates

October 10th, 2020

Please see latest Covid updates:

As you may be continuing to view in the local media, cases of COVID are increasing sharply across the County.


The Government are expected to announce tougher restrictions for Nottingham and Nottinghamshire next week which could include measures similar to those in place in other parts of the country in which movements are restricted.

The message remains the same in the County to not mix indoors with people from other households until any further update is available.


Please also continue to follow this advice and play your part to stop the spread of the virus:


  • “Hands, Face, Space” which means:
    – Hands – wash your hands frequently for at least 20 seconds
    – Face – wear a face covering where required, unless you are exempt
    – Space – Maintain social distance of at least 2 metres from anyone you don’t live with or 1 metre plus additional precautions such as extra ventilation, screens or face coverings
  • When eating out at a café, pub or restaurant everyone should provide full and accurate contact details of everyone in your group using the NHS COVID-19 app or leaving details with the business.
  • Avoid car sharing but if doing so keep windows open, stick to small groups and wipe down surfaces.
  • If you have COVID symptoms, get a test and self-isolate. Symptoms include a fever, a new continuous cough, or loss of your sense of taste or smell. Call 119 to book your free test or book online via the NHS website.

A reminder, face coverings must be worn in the following locations:


  • Customers in private hire vehicles and taxis.
  • Customers in hospitality venues, except when seated at a table to eat or drink. Staff in hospitality and retail are required to wear them too.
  • Staff working on public transport and taxi drivers.


We are planning to introduce COVID Information officers on a shift basis in West Bridgford and the six largest parishes over the next week to assist businesses and residents.


We will be in touch with the Parish Councils in Cotgrave, Bingham, Radcliffe on Trent, Keyworth, Ruddington and East Leake about this and how we can best work together with our parish partners.


The officers will work alongside our Environmental Health Officers to ensure that we support businesses and residents as much as possible. A further update on this will be available in next week’s Councillors’ Connection.


Thank you,

The Media Team










Thank you for contacting Rushcliffe Borough Council.


Barnstone Play Area to remain closed.

October 8th, 2020

For those that have ventured down to Barnstone Park Play Area,  you will see that there are a couple of fantastic new additions as below.

Even though they look inviting, the equipment is not yet complete.

The work needs to be finished and officially signed off, before play commences.

I will advise you all once it is officially ready for action!!!
