In the meanwhile, please follow government advice:
Everyone must stay at home to help stop the spread of coronavirus.
This includes people of all ages – even if you do not have any symptoms or other health conditions. You can only leave your home:
- to shop for basic essentials – only when you really need to
- to do one form of exercise a day – such as a run, walk or cycle, alone or with other people you live with
- for any medical need – for example, to visit a pharmacy or deliver essential supplies to a vulnerable person
- to travel to and from work – but only where this is absolutely necessary
Do watch national news and/or listen to the radio to keep up to date with government advice and recommendations.
Spring Water on the Green
Please note that the water from the pump on the green has been tested recently and coliform bacteria has been found in it. Coliform in itself is not dangerous, but it could signify other pathogens, and so the Parish Council are recommending that the water should not be drunk. The Parish Council will be monitoring the water, with the aid of WDC environmental health, and any changes will be notified here.
Please note also that the water from the spout is definitely not drinkable, and never will be
Make the right call
Warwickshire Police have launched a series of help and advice pages and donwloadable leaflets in the contact section of their website. The information is there to support members of the public in 'making the right call' in the event of something happening and to make the right call to the right service first time. This, in turn, will reduce the number of calls going in to the Warwickshire Police communications centre, meaning that the staff are available for the Grade 1 emergency calls and to reduce the waiting time for anyone calling on 101.

New permissive paths in Bubbenhall Wood
In 2016, Bubbenhall Wood and Bubbenhall Meadow (the land between Ryton Pools and Bubbenhall Wood) were bought by Warwickshire Wildlife Trust. Their aim is to give greater access to the countryside and as part of this plan they have opened up two new permissive paths:
1. From Shrubs Lodge across Bubbenhall Meadow, finishing in Pagets Lane opposite the new entrance to Bubbenhall Wood.
2. A circular walk around Bubbenhall Wood, accessible either from the new entrance in Pagets Lane, or from Middle Ride (the existing public footpath)
Please note that dogs are required to be kept on a lead at all times, and kept well away from the pools in the meadow.
Please remember that parking in Pagets Lane causes problems for local residents.
