Spring is certainly here, lambs can be seen bouncing around the ﬁelds and daffodils in their full glory.
We are delighted to advise that in line with the relaxation of restrictions The Fox will be re-opening on Monday 12th April.
Over the past few weeks we have been busy preparing for this, cleaning, painting, planting and preparing our outside space. Initially we will only be able to operate outside on our patio area and have made provision for not only covered area’s to protect from the elements but also additional new seating for drinking and dining.
During this interim period in anticipation of being permitted to open inside in May, we will be offering a menu that has been tailored to enjoy on our patio or alternatively to take home. We look forward to returning to our normal seasonally changing menu with daily specials as soon as possible.
Our patio menu can be viewed on our menu page of our website ; www.thefoxrutland.co.uk
For takeout orders please telephone 01780 720991 to place your order during opening hours and to arrange a collection time. We look forward to welcoming you back to The Fox
People may not be aware, but in order to protect sheep from diseases such as you need to pick up your dog mess when walking in the fields local to North Luffenham
Local Farmers have lost several sheep to dog faeces transmitted disease
Dog waste on grazing land can pass worms and parasites to sheep, so it is vital that dog owners pick up their dogs’ droppings when walking pets on farm land. The eggs of worms and parasites can survive on the ground for a long time, so dog mess must even be cleared from fields that do not currently have livestock grazing in them. It is also important to keep your dog thoroughly wormed all year round.
Just to let you know we have now vaccinated 89.6% of the 2753 patients aged over 80. We have finished vaccinating residents of all 11 care homes.
An attempt to contact all the patients over 80 has been made, and there will be more calls made tomorrow. Where we cannot contact patients, we will try their next of kin if recorded in their records. We have not yet started vaccinating housebound patients but hope to do so after this week if we get a vaccine delivery. Any housebound patients who can be brought to the centre will be vaccinated this week (we can vaccinate 600 per day at eth vaccination centre, but only 20/day at home and the vaccine centre is better supported for potential reactions)
We have a larger delivery this week, and we are now able to start offering vaccine to the next cohort, 75-79 year olds. Again there are over 2000 people in this cohort, so they will not all be invited this week. Some patients who are aged 77-79 will receive an invitation to book. We have sufficient vaccine to start this process using the automated booking whilst we are also finishing the over 80 invitations by phone, and we are also offering vaccination to local frontline health and care staff who have contact with multiple older adults. I hope that the simultaneous booking of 77-79 year old using a rapid process, whilst we also use a slower process to invite the remaining over 80s does not cause confusion, and any help you can give in allaying any concerns is much appreciated. We are making the best use of the vaccine that we receive – most is administered to patients within 48 hours of our receiving it, and we are using the extra doses in the vials whenever possible( all but one vial on Friday!)
