Teams working across Alconbury Weald are currently working through the Government Guidance as it develops to ensure we play our part in slowing the spread of Covid 19. Currently:

  • The Club, Gym and Café are currently closed.
  • Play Areas and the Multi Use Games Area are closed.
  • The green walks around the development are open, with signs going up to reinforce to people to ensure they maintain the social distancing guidance of staying 2 metres / 6 feet away from people.
  • The Allotments remain open with social distancing reminders and reminders to wash your hands when you get home.
  • Ermine Street Church Academy and Jemima House Nursery remain open to support the children of essential workers

Rebecca Britton, from developers Urban&Civic said:
“It is really important that everyone plays their part in slowing the spread of Covid 19, supporting the NHS and saving lives. Alconbury Weald has some nice woodland glades and green walks which we hope enable people to take some exercise daily, while maintaining the advised distance.

“Similarly the allotments are an important part of keeping active and maintaining home grown fruit and vegetables, and so we hope people will continue to use these in line with the government guidance.”

Alongside these measures the Community Development Team have dropped off advice through each door, with red and orange cut-outs for people to display if they need help from neighbours, and for neighbours to drop through doors offering help to others.

Natalie Leigh Brown, from the Communities team, added:

“Its been great to see the outpouring of community spirit from residents keen to help each other, and we are doing all we can to support the growing community spirit of our residents and ensure we all help each other through these challenging times.”

The team will be giving a video update which can be viewed here: https://vimeo.com/399162721  with an accompanying live Q&A session on the Alconbury Weald Living Facebook group on Friday 27 March at 7.30pm, https://www.facebook.com/groups/alconburywealdliving/.
