27 July 2020 Postponed Aldwincle VE Day Street Party
In the light of continuing restrictions regarding gatherings of more than 30 people and the need to maintain social distancing there will be no event on VJ Day (15th August) and there are no further plans to hold a Street Party this year.
We hope to hold this around VJ Day. Weekend 15th August

Friday 8th May 2020 has been designated the May Bank Holiday in order to coincide with the 75th anniversary of VE day. There will be a service of remembrance in the morning followed by a street party in the afternoon. A sub committee of the Parish Council is organising the event and will be looking for memorabilia and recollections of Aldwincle during 1939-1945 and is planning to display these in St Peter's Church.
07 July 2020Coronavirus Community Resilience Hub
A Local Resilience Hub has been set up in Northamptonshire to help in the co-ordination of support to those who are self-isolating and vulnerable. Within Aldwincle every household has been given a card with the phone numbers of volunteers offering to assist with food deliveries, medicines, or just acting as a voice on the end of the phone for contact or other advice.
We are fortunate to have Watties in the village, and Pat and Trevor are working hard to provide deliveries for those that are isolated.
The Resilience Hub also has a helpline 0300 126 1000 (option5) which links in with District and Borough Councils where futher assistance is required. Their latest Newsletter is available here

The Parish Council discussed the the possibility of re-opening the Play Area but having considered the Government advice, and the risks associated with the Aldwincle site, decided to keep the area closed, possibly until September. We will continue to monitor the situation and review this decision if circumstances change.
