It has been brought to the attention of the Parish Council that there was a a group of children playing football on the Oval Recreation Ground this afternoon. We would kindly request that this does not happen again in accordance with the Government’s current guidelines. The more that people follow the current advice then hopefully the current restrictions will be lifted.
Thank you North Luffenham Parish Council
We will not be running this week (23rd-27th March) after this weeks announcement.
Next week we will be running but on a DELIVERY ONLY basis.
We will NOT be taking any orders at the van. If you come to the van you will be sent away.
Please understand that we can only deliver in the villages that we park in.. if you come to us regularly but don’t live in any of the villages please contact us on 07702318625 to see what we can do.
If you can call before 2pm if possible to place your order on the day please do. We will be taking orders over the phone while the van is out but it makes our job harder. We want this to run as smoothly as possible for everyone.
Payment can be made via BACS, PayPal or at the door via contactless card payment (our card reader will be on a stick to minimise contact) if you are only able to pay by cash please state while ordering and we will call you when we are on our way with your order to leave the money outside your door, and we will leave food with your change (we are disinfecting all cash handled)
If you are unable to pay by BACS or PayPal at Barrowden, Nassington or Elton you will have to pay by cash as we get no signal to use the card reader.
We will be unable to give you a time that your order will be with you, but it will be roughly within the time slot we are in your village.
There will be a £1.20 charge per order for delivery to cover the cost of the extra car and fuel used.
Kerrie-Ann will be delivering your food wearing clean gloves for each delivery and a face mask. She will knock on your door and leave the food on your door step and wait at the end of your drive way to insure you get your food unless payment is needed.
We will not be selling some items on our menu to keep things simple. We will post a menu by the end of the week.
The number to order on is
07702318625. If we don’t answer the phone please DO NOT leave a voice mail, either call again later or send us a text.
Sadly we are no longer permitted to keep the church building open, but Church is not buildings, Church is the Christian community. Rev. Pippa will be conducting a Service this coming Sunday for the whole of the Benefice at 0930hrs. It will be accessible on the Rutland Water Benefice Facebook page as a Watch Party. It has the options of being listened to, or joined interactively. It is very easy to access, but to do so you must be on Facebook and then join the Rutland Water Benefice group. And if you are not a Facebook person, joining both Facebook and the Group is easy!
To join Facebook, search for Facebook, answer a few questions, provide a password and there you are.
Then, search for The Rutland Water Benefice
To request to join the The Rutland Water Benefice Facebook group, “Press Join”..
You will then become a member of the group – it may take half a day to add to you or far far less !
You will then have access to the Watch Party ready for Sunday 0930hrs
Please spread the News of the Rutland Water Benefice Facebook page as it is updated daily and a valuable source of Christian fellowship locally.
The MoD have closed off the informal access to the airfield area at the top of the lane leading up from Butt Lane, due to Corona virus compliance. I assume they did not have any Royal Engineers available to help install the No Entry sign…
Several people have been searching the vilalge web site for information on the status of the North Luffenham Household Waste and Recycling Centre (The Tip..)
This was closed on 20th March by RCC as part of the Coronavirus distancing measures. Its not known when it will open again
Edith Weston Village Store & Post Office are coordinating home deliveries of food & other provisions from their shop, through a team of local volunteers, to people self isolating in the community.
If you cannot leave your home to shop for food because you are self-isolating, you can call the Store on 01780 722164, and place your order over the phone. They will endeavour to deliver your order asap, but if you can order in the morning it will help them deliver it sooner to you.
Please note the new slightly contracted opening hours for the store below. This will allow the store more time to re-stock shelves , coordinate deliveries and maintain employee distancing in the workplace.
In accordance with new Government guidelines on play areas and equipment we have today had to close the use of the play equipment on the Oval Recreation Ground. Please respect this notice. Thank you NLPC

As you may have heard we’ve sadly made the decision to close all of our water parks, including Rutland Water, to the public along with all activities with immediate effect to help limit the spread of coronavirus. None of our car parks will be open and all tracks and gates are closed. Public access will not be permitted in any areas.
All events at our parks will be cancelled until the end of June which sadly means that the Anglian Water Music Festival will be postponed until next year. We’ll be excited to welcome festival goers to the shores of Rutland Water then, but are advising those who have bought tickets for this year’s event to choose whether to defer their booking until next year, or claim a full refund. Refunds can be claimed via Eventbrite, and if we don’t hear from ticket holders by Monday 31st August, tickets will automatically be rolled over to next year’s festival.
We would encourage everybody to follow the Government’s advice to social distance and not travel wherever possible to protect the most vulnerable in our communities.

Social distancing measures are steps you can take to reduce the social interaction between people. This will help reduce the transmission of coronavirus (COVID-19).
Everyone should be trying to follow these measures as much as is pragmatic.
We strongly advise you to follow the above measures as much as you can and to significantly limit your face-to-face interaction with friends and family if possible, particularly if you:
This advice is likely to be in place for some weeks.
Following guidance from Central Government actual Parish Council meetings along with committees and working groups are to be suspended for the time being due to CORVID-19.
Central Gov’t is currently working on new legislation to allow future meetings to be held virtually. This means that the NLPC meeting scheduled for 23rd March is cancelled. Further information about the Annual Parish meeting scheduled for April and the Annual Parish Council meeting in May will follow, though at present it is likely both will be postponed to later in the year.
