Parties and Gatherings in The Roundhouse – Please Remove your Rubbish

The Roundhouse is community facility for everyone to enjoy and the Parish Council are so pleased that it is being used.

However, I have received a report that a very recent party took place, and although everything was left nice and tidy (thank you), a few bags of rubbish were left behind.  One of our volunteers very kindly collected the bags and disposed of them. One of these bags contained food waste and you can imagine the work it would have taken to clear up if our local wildlife had decided to have their own party with this.

Please take your party rubbish home to dispose of.

Thank you

Latest Information Regarding Covid-19 from Chichester District Council


  • There will be a four week pause at step 3, until 19 July.
  • Relevant regulations will be extended until the end of Sunday 18 July.
  • The data will be continuously reviewed and assessed against the four tests.
  • An announcement on proceeding with this new date will happen no later than 12 July.
  • If the data is better than expected in a couple of weeks, the Government may be in a position to move to step 4 earlier than 19 July.

What you can and can’t do


Life events

Large events

  • Another phase of events pilots will be run for large events, including to test certification.
  • This will see approximately 10-15 large events (some over multiple days) permitted post-21 June at higher capacities with attendees demonstrating Covid status.
  • The list of events will be published on GOV.UK

Residential visits

  • Guidance will be amended to allow out of school settings (eg Scouts, Girl Guides etc) to organise residential visits in ‘bubbles’ of up to 30 children.
  • This is an increase from the current limit of six or two households, and aligns with the current position for schools.


  • A first vaccine dose will have been offered to all adults by w/c 19 July.
  • All over-40s who had their first dose by mid-May will be offered their second dose by w/c19 July.

Adult social care

  • Need to isolate after visits out or on an admission will be removed, as will the requirement for residents to isolate for 14 days after visits out (with the exception of overnight stays in hospital, or a visit which is deemed high risk by the care home).
  • Need to isolate following admission from the community will also be removed (subject to criteria specified in the guidance and as long as daily PHE testing protocol continues).
  • All residents can nominate an Essential Care Giver (ECG) for any purpose or care need (rather than only where the purpose or care need cannot easily be provided by care home staff), and permit visits from ECGs during periods of isolation.

Enhanced response

  • Additional support is to be introduced in key areas affected by high levels of the Delta variant, including Cheshire East; Cheshire West and Chester; Liverpool City Region; Warrington; Birmingham; and Blackpool. This follows the introduction of further support in Greater Manchester and Lancashire last week.
  • The support package aims to supress the spread of the Delta variant and break chains of transmission. This approach has been working in parts of London and in Bolton, stopping a rise in the number of cases.

Easebourne Park CLOSED on Tuesday 30th March 2021

Easebourne Park will be closed from 8am to 6pm on Tuesday 30th March for essential groundworks to aid surface drainage in the Park.

As many of you will be aware, the Park was rather muddy for much of the winter. This was due to surface compaction not allowing surface water to drain away, something the groundwork on Tuesday will alleviate.

We apologise for any inconvenience caused, but trust you will find the park less muddy on your future visits.

Update from Chichester District Council

This week has marked a really positive step forward in the journey towards the end of lockdown, with schools and colleges opening their doors again.

It has been wonderful to see children on their way to school in the morning, eager to see their friends again and resume face-to-face teaching. On Monday many pupils were greeted with balloons as they walked into their schools, which was a lovely celebratory touch. As a school governor, I know how hard our schools have been working in preparation for this week, from organising Covid testing to getting lesson plans in place and ensuring that the buildings are safe for everyone.

I know that teachers and support staff will be making their pupils feel really welcome and will be working over and above to help them adjust and get back into the swing of school life after such a long time studying online, away from the classroom. I’d also like to pay tribute to all the parents who have had such a difficult task over the past few months, homeschooling their children while often working from home themselves, and to our teachers for running online lessons and also keeping the children of our key workers safe in school.

It’s also especially heartwarming to know that care home residents are now being allowed to see one regular, nominated visitor indoors. This contact is hugely important for both our elderly care home residents and their families and I hope that it will bring much comfort to all those concerned.

As part of the Step 1 easing, we can now leave our homes and meet outside with one friend not from our household. As the days lengthen this is a very welcome boost, but as the Government explained last month, lifting restrictions is going to be a very gradual process. It depends on us all continuing to play our part as the vaccine programme carries on being rolled out, so I urge everyone – including those of you, like me, who have had your vaccine – to follow the current guidance. As the adverts say, every space made, every weekend spent at home, every virtual call and every window that you open, all help to reduce infection rates.

Although the roadmap to the end of lockdown is in progress, the financial effects of the past year will be with us long term. If you are experiencing financial hardship then I appeal to you to contact us for advice. There is a lot of help available, and we want to reach out to people before their situation worsens and before people slide into debt or are faced with potential homelessness.

There are many different circumstances affecting people: for example you may have been furloughed, or made redundant, or your household may have suffered the loss of one or both incomes. This may have caused you to fall behind with your rent or mortgage for the first time. Or, you may be a landlord with a single property which acts as your retirement pension but you are currently not receiving any income and don’t know what to do. Our benefits team can offer advice and guidance about your options and where to go for further support.

If your earnings have changed because of the pandemic then you can check www.entitledto.co.uk which is a quick and easy benefits calculator which will tell you if you would be eligible to receive any benefits.

If you need help with your mortgage then we can advise you of the different government help available and options around payment holidays which are offered by mortgage and loan providers.

And if you are struggling with the cost of your council tax I encourage you to get in touch with us to discuss your account so that we can try and work out how we can help you.

We know that there are people in our district who may be struggling with the stress of changes to their financial situation, but help is there and I really urge you to contact us before things get more serious, so that we can provide help and advice. You can find out more information at www.chichester.gov.uk/helpwithfinances

As ever thank you for the part you are playing in the fight against Covid-19, each action we take will make a huge difference.

Best wishes,

Councillor Eileen Lintill

Leader, Chichester District Council
