Notice from EBBERSTON with YEDINGHAM PARISH COUNCIL

Posted on behalf of Michael Eyre, current chair of the Parish Council

The Parish Council is aware that unofficial notices have been posted throughout Ebberston village this week regarding Coronavirus lockdown measures. These may have offended or caused concern with some residents. Parish Councillors have been approached by residents voicing their concerns.  

Acting on advice from NYCC, the Parish Council informed the Police.  The Police took the matter seriously and have spoken to the relevant household.  The Police have advised that the notices were inappropriate and it was unacceptable to publish someone’s name and address. 

The Parish Council hopes that this course of action will prevent any future issue like this occurring and also give residents that may have felt intimidated or concerned peace of mind.

 The Parish Council advises to follow current Government guidelines regarding Coronavirus.

Ebberston in lockdown- a snapshot in time

Monday 23rd March 2020. Our prime minister announces the UK is on lockdown due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. Shops, pubs, cafes all shut. The British public are allowed outside once a day for exercise. This was a time for the country to pull together and help each other out. This is a blog to capture this unique moment in our history. While at the time of writing lockdown restrictions are slowly beginning to lift, it is important to remember how our village coped with coronavirus.
