ERYC Coronvirus Update

4-step plan

A 4-step plan (or roadmap) to ease lockdown restrictions in England was announced on Monday, 22 February 2021. We are now in Step 3 of the plan. The government has announced a pause to 'Step 3' that has delayed 'Step 4' by 4 weeks. This means the lift of all restrictions will be no earlier than Monday, 19 July 2021.

Near Miss Accidents and Speeding

There is increasing public concern about car parking at various points throughout the village.

Contact:  Email:                                     

You should report incidents of any perceived speeding or other anti-social driving behaviour to the local police service using the 101 non-emergency number
