Mole Valley to Enter Tier Two Restrictions on 2 December 2020

It’s been confirmed today that Mole Valley together with the rest of Surrey will enter Tier Two restrictions when the national lockdown is lifted on 2 December.

Councillor Stephen Cooksey, Leader of Mole Valley District Council, said: “The government has confirmed that when the national lockdown ends on 2 December, Mole Valley will move into Tier Two.

This is the High Alert. Whilst everyone in Mole Valley have played their part and we had hoped to be a Tier 1 area, we have joined many areas across the country in the mid-tier. This new tier system has been strengthened in comparison to the previous occasion we were in local lockdown. This has been done to prevent a return to growing infections.

“We must remain vigilant. This tier has strict rules and we must follow them. The advice of ‘Hands, Face, Space remains. If the infection rate in the district rises, we could be moved up to the next tier and risk the rules imposed on us tightening. If you travel to a Tier 1 area, you will still need to follow the tier rules for Tier 2 while you are there. Everyone has been advised not to travel to a Tier 3 area wherever possible.

“We must all keep doing what have now become the ‘basics’ in these extraordinary times, including wearing a face covering in most indoor public spaces (except where exemptions apply), maintain social distancing wherever appropriate and working from home where it is practical to do so. The new rules state that we must not socialise with anyone you do not live with or in your support bubble indoors, and socialising in a group of more than six people anywhere outside is not allowed.

“It was confirmed on Monday this week that, across the country, many local businesses could reopen in a COVID-secure manner from 2 December. As a Tier 2 area, restaurants can reopen to provide table service, but pubs and bars can only open if operating as a restaurant. Dorking Halls, alongside other theatres in Mole Valley, is able to reopen, and can stay open beyond 11pm to conclude performances that have started beyond 10pm. Of real significance is the news that attending outdoor and indoor events, including spectator sports and business events, is once again allowed, though restrictions on numbers do apply.

“You can also once again enjoy the facilities at the Dorking Sports Centre and Leatherhead Leisure Centre as these facilities can reopen the doors too. Community Recycling Centres will be remaining open and you can once again attend places of worship for communal prayer. The complete breakdown of the Tier Two local restrictions can be read on the GOV.UK website.

“The government have also now announced rules for those who make the personal choice to spend their Christmas with friends and family from other households. Between the 23 and 27 December, up to three households can form a ‘bubble’ to meet at home during this five day period. If you do choose to see others at this time, please do so responsibly and follow the guidance in place. Further guidance is available”.

Oak tree on The Green

Oak tree on The Green

Leigh Parish Council recently commissioned a tree survey for the land it manages. Excluding The Spinney, there are over 140 trees to look after. They are part of what makes Leigh such a beautiful place to live, travel through, work in and visit. Part of the crowning glory are the huge Oak trees on the green. In order to keep them healthy and safe they need a crop.

The large oak tree on the corner of The Glebe, next to the post box (pictured) needs a crown clean. As it sits in the conservation area it needs to be approved by MVDC planning. Once that has gone through, the work will be completed as soon as possible. There will be more work over the next couple of months as we work through the ‘to do’ list.

Playground update and new climber

We have had lots of visitors at the playgrounds since reopening which is lovely to see. In order to keep the playground safe and open we ask that you observe the following:

  • Maintain social distancing. Stay at least 2m apart
  • Be considerate in terms of how long you visit for so that others do not have to miss out
  • If the playground is busy and social distancing is not possible, please come back at another time
  • Do not enter the playground if you have been diagnosed with, or experiencing symptoms of, coronavirus
  • Do not bring food or drink into the playground
  • Ensure that your hands are clean before entering and when leaving the playground
  • This site is not serviced for cleaning or litter picking. There should be nothing left behind.

We are delighted with our new conical climber and we hope your children are too!

The software we will be using will be Zoom. Should you want to join the meeting please contact the clerk directly on leighparishcouncil@gmail.com for join up instructions.

Laura
