New government guidance – 'Rule of 6'

The government announced that from Monday 14 September it will be illegal for people to meet indoors or outdoors in groups larger than 6, other than for certain exempt activities.

According to the information published on 9th and 14th September – see the links below – it appears that certain types of exercise and education are allowed to continue in groups larger than 6 as long as everyone follows social distancing guidelines.

Please note, we cannot interpret this for you, nor can we or should we 'police' the activities that your group does. Therefore, please would you check the information in the link below to decide for yourself whether your activity is allowable under these guidelines.

Please also note that if your activity is not allowed, and you do meet in a group larger than 6, you would actually be breaking the law.

PARENTS... do you know where your children and teens are or what they are doing?

We are suffering high levels of unsociable behaviour and criminal damage
to equipment and facilities on the Rectory field.

Gangs of what appear to be 10 to 14 year olds have been seen
to be carrying out such acts in the afternoon and evenings.

The replacement and repair of such articles costs the Parish council money;
this money comes from your council tax!

Please ensure you know what your children are doing and help up us stamp out this needless damage and thus save everyone money and inconvenience.

Thank you.

Keyworth Parish Council has donated the use of its facilities for the production of face shields for the NHS and key workers

Claire Giles contacted Keyworth Parish Council in a desperate need for more space so we have kindly donated the use our facilities for the production of face shields for the NHS and key workers. The project is run entirely on donations; to support Claire and her team, visit her facebook page at: https://www.facebook.com/nottsshieldsnhs

Nottingham Face Shields NHS and Key workers

We are currently creating about 150 of masks a day for frontline NHS staff in Nottingham and other key workers, but we have orders well over 300 a day! With your help we can close this gap and order the vital materials we need to keep the masks flowing.

We are a group of around 20 people on a mission to 3D print our way out of this pandemic! We are creating face shields for key workers in Nottingham and need to keep people safe and keep people working!

Every penny donated goes directly to fixing the PPE shortage locally, care homes, GP's, NHS and others near you!

If you have never heard about 3D printing - here is an article to find out more:

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-52201696

The safety of our key workers is super important to us, and with a shortage of masks and eye protectors, these 3D printed full face shields are ideal as they protect the whole face and are comfortable to wear. They can also be sterilised between shifts.

If you know anyone with a 3D printer they are not currently using please put them in touch - we would love hear from you.
