It has been a busy day with 16 requests for assistance being successfully responded to. Indeed, a request for volunteer assistance that I posted just before 7am this morning was picked up in 3 mins, this just another great example of the fantastic commitment from the excellent band of volunteers that the village and I are privileged to have.


Anyway, back to the calls, they came in the guise of:


8 x Prescription collections and deliveries

3 x Shopping trips

3 x Welfare home visits &

2 x Miscellaneous


Branston All Saints Food Bank


Thank you to Julie and Liam for managing the Food Bank today and tomorrow we’ll see Simone kindly taking up the reins for the rest of the week.


Request for Delivery Assistance


I’ve recently referred to Judy and Marcus being involved on a special mission, well I’m pleased to announce that they have successfully completed it……. Over the past few weeks they have been putting together 50 Christmas Food Hampers in preparation for them to be delivered next week . If you are aware of or know someone who would benefit from one of these, please let me know, discretion will be in place.


Of course to complete the operation, volunteers are needed to deliver them. If you are available and you’d like to help out, please let me know (07395 906220) the first deliveries will begin at 1030am next Tuesday, 8th December at the Church Hall and will continue throughout the week.


The more the merrier.

Welcome to your latest edition of e-NewsNK


From tomorrow all of Lincolnshire will be in the Tier 3 Very High alert.


Sticking to the restrictions is the best thing we can do as individuals, to bring closer the day when the alert level can be lowered.


The image below illustrates the main aspects of life in Tier 3 from 00:01 on Wednesday, December 2.


Shops, churches and leisure centres and are open but pub and restaurant doors are closed, as is indoor entertainment, and you can’t meet others indoors or out (other than in public places)


As Cllr Wright indicated last week – and borne out by latest figures – it is essential that we all work together in fill compliance of the rules and restrictions so that we can help to bring down the transmission rate for the whole of the county and hope for a better position moving in to the New Year.


Latest weekly figures suggest that Covid cases in England are falling – down 30%. But in Lincolnshire the fall isn’t so strong, at 18%. And while the transmission rate in North Kesteven is declining by 29%, the local case rate is still 190 per 100,000 which is higher than the England average.


This all goes to show how we all need to tackle this together, and only by collectively following the rules and watching our Hands, Face and Space can we hope to bring the Alert Level down and look towards 2021 with some hope.
