Nottinghamshire County Council have invested £750,000 in order to help deliver high-speed broadband to the most rural parts of the county. The £750,000 investment is to support the government’s ‘Gigabit Broadband Voucher Scheme’ which delivers subsidy to rural homes and businesses without access to high-speed broadband to help deploy a full-fibre network. Under the scheme residential premises are eligible for up to £1,500 and small and medium sized businesses are eligible for up to £3,500 through a registered supplier when part of a group scheme. The Notts top-up doubles the value of the voucher, meaning rural residential premises are eligible for up to £3,000, and small and medium sized rural business are eligible for up to £7,000. For further details on the scheme and to see if your property is eligible please visit www.nottinghamshire.gov.uk/top-up or contact the team at enquiries.broadband@nottscc.gov.uk

Halloween & Bonfire Night

October 29th, 2020

Residents urged to stay safe this
Halloween and Bonfire Night

Rushcliffe Borough Council is appealing to those residents taking part in Halloween and Bonfire Night celebrations to stay safe, follow their local COVID-19 restrictions and be mindful of their community when celebrating at home.

As the Borough is under tier three COVID-19 restrictions for both occasions, the authority is urging neighbours to be considerate and help support each other as everyone celebrates slightly differently this year.

This includes not mixing indoors or in private gardens with other households, a rule of six in larger outdoor public spaces such as parks and remembering Hands, Face, Space at all times.

To help guide households, the Council is continuing to update their website with ideas, inspiration and advice for both occasions at www.rushcliffe.gov.uk/halloween

Residents are also being asked to take care and consider the impact garden fireworks or bonfires could have on their surroundings before incorporating them into their celebrations and to notify neighbours of their plans.

Earlier this year, the authority’s Communities Scrutiny group recommended the discontinuation of loud fireworks at Council events in the interests of wildlife, pets, the elderly and those with disabilities.

Anyone setting off fireworks from their property should ensure they have all the proper tools, space and knowledge to do so and should consult with their neighbours to ensure this will not cause unnecessary distress to those nearby.

Low noise fireworks offer a quieter alternative for those wishing to enjoy a garden display full of vivid colours, whilst causing minimal disruption and concern to local neighbours, pets and wildlife.

Rushcliffe Borough Council’s Portfolio Holder for Community and the Environment Cllr Abby Brennan said: “We know how important it is to find opportunities to celebrate in such tough times.

“Many communities are finding novel ways to replace the traditional ‘trick or treat’ with pumpkin trails or Halloween walks that ensure fun for families but keep everyone safe.

“We want to help support communities to enjoy Halloween and Bonfire Night in ways that are both COVID-secure and considerate of our surroundings.

“Please be mindful of Hands, Face, Space when venturing out over the coming weekends and follow the rule of six when meeting with other households outdoors in public spaces.

“It’s also important to remember that fireworks can be distressing for many people, including elderly members of our communities and those with disabilities. They can also have a negative impact on pets and wildlife in our largely rural Borough.

“That’s why we’re encouraging everyone to check with their neighbours before planning to set off fireworks and choose quieter ways to celebrate wherever possible, such as low noise fireworks.

“Fireworks and bonfires can be incredibly dangerous if not set up and monitored carefully and you should not set up either without proper care, attention and consideration.

“If everyone does their best to follow the guidance we can all enjoy a safe and fun Halloween and Bonfire season.”

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!!!
