Anyone with symptoms of Covid-19 can have a test. You must book a test in advance. Please do not turn up to one of the locations without booking – anyone without a booking risks being turned away.

To book a test or for more information on testing, go to the NHS website or call 119.

Church Services at present

Worship at St Cyrs

In discussion with all the wardens, we have taken the decision to move all Church services online at present.

Our church will remain open for private prayer. 

We will have a zoom service at 9:30 on Sunday, also live streamed to Youtube.

ONLINE WORSHIP

Please visit our Facebook page or Youtube channel for our services.

Although under Tier 4 communal worship is permitted, in the knowledge that the NHS is overstretched by the pandemic, it is our judgement that we have a responsibility to our local community to do as much as we can to prevent the ongoing spread of the virus. 

With new coronavirus restrictions, make sure you’re signed up for church e-mails to get the latest news.

Look Out for Ash Dieback

The Parish Council has begun a survey of trees in the parish which may have been infected by this fungal disease, but this is a very big undertaking and as much help from residents as possible would be greatly appreciated. It would help greatly if while you’re out walking, you would keep a lookout for any signs of disease in mature ash trees in and around the village (See https://stinchcombepc.co.uk/mitigating-ash-dieback-in-stinchcombe/ for more details and information on how to recognise it.) and let the Parish Council know (clerk@stinchcombepc.co.uk) if you spot any trees you think are cause for concern. It is important to know where there are affected trees, both because of the potential danger of their falling and also because it may be possible to obtain funding for their replacement.  Enjoy your walks and thank you for keeping a lookout.

Upcoming Road Closure 20th July

The B4060 is due to be closed between Stancombe and North Nibley for bridge and retaining wall repair from 20th July to 7th August. It will be necessary to close the road completely to through traffic because of the excavation and size of machinery that will be used.

Parish Council Vacancy

Chris Snellock has recently stepped down from the Parish Council because of pressure of work and the Council would like to thank him for his valuable contribution over the last four years.

There is therefore now a vacancy for a new Councillor and this is an ideal opportunity for anyone who would like to take more part in village life – and perhaps a good way for someone new to Stinchcombe to become involved.

The response to Covid 19 in the village has been amazing with 35 people signing up to “do their bit” and it’s very encouraging to know that there is still such a community spirit here – is our next Parish Councillor in that group?
