As many of you will know, Heather Whitaker has decided to retire as Editor of Signpost after 10 years and 40 issues. The Parish Council wish to thank Heather for all the work she has put in to make the magazine the success it is today, informing and entertaining residents of happenings near and far.

The presses are waiting for the next issue and so the Parish Council is seeking a volunteer to pull future issues into shape. Although the title is that of ‘Editor’, Heather feels that ‘Formatter’ is a better description of the work involved in entering the articles and adverts into a desktop publishing program, as the sourcing of articles and advertisements, the proof-reading, and getting the final proof to the printers is handled by others.

If you feel you have experience or confidence in using a DTP program and can offer some of your time to help us, we’d love to hear from you. Please contact Sharon Ellis, Parish Clerk, in the first instance

(T: 07984075016; E: As a special introductory offer, Heather has offered to assist the new Editor with getting to grips with the work involved.

Rushcliffe, Nottingham, Broxtowe and Gedling Council areas are set to move to Tier 3 COVID-19 restrictions following discussions between Government and our Council Leaders.

The new measures will expire in 28 days and will be closely monitored by Government and local partners.

The single package of measures across these specific areas will be formally announced tomorrow (Tuesday October 27) and have been agreed to achieve a sustained reduction in infection rates, especially to help protect our vulnerable residents, the NHS and social care services.

A package of support similar to those secured in other parts of the country has been agreed to help residents and businesses who will be impacted by the new restrictions.

Further measures specific to these areas of Nottingham and Nottinghamshire will also be announced tomorrow.

Our Leader Cllr Simon Robinson said: “We know we are asking residents and businesses to make ever more sacrifices, but they are necessary to ensure we can restrict transmission of COVID-19 and protect lives.
