Coronavirus / Covid-19 village information

Village WhatsApp Group

A Village WhatsApp group has been set up to help residents keep in touch whilst maintaining social distance. It will also help minimise trips out of the village where possible and we can help each other out with necessities. If you are not already in this group please contact us here with your name and phone details and we will add you.

If you don’t have WhatsApp, and you need to reach others in the village for assistance you can always contact us here – emails are picked up regularly.

Luddington Care & Share

A group of volunteers across the villages have set up a support network for those who may be in need of assistance over the coming weeks.

Contact details can be found in the April edition of branches.

Please see below for details of local businesses who are operating telephone or online ordering for items which then can be delivered to you by volunteers.

Churchyard Clearup 1st March from 2pm

As you may remember Luddington churchyard was awarded a Bronze Award for churchyard conservation from the Northamptonshire Wildlife Trust last year.  We were one of only four churches receiving an award which lasts for 3 years, giving us plenty of time to continue with our churchyard wildlife management plan so that  hopefully we will be in a position to apply for our silver award in 2021. A session to clear the churchyard and make it ready for spring is well over due and we do want to keep on track to win that silver.

So.. we have arranged for a work party to work on the church yard on Sunday  1st March starting at about 2pm. Sustenance will be provided. The more the merrier and the more that will be achieved, so please come and help. If you can’t make that afternoon, help in the morning or another time will be so much appreciated. Please contact us if you can help.
