COVID 19 Latest from DMBC May 14th 2020

Schools: Doncaster Council is working closely with schools across the borough on arrangements around proposed school re-openings from 1st June. “We are all in agreement that we will be taking a Doncaster-specific approach to the situation and be doing what is best for the children of Doncaster. Although the Government has earmarked the 1st June as a possible target date, schools in Doncaster will only open when we are confident that we have the relevant plans in place to do so safely for staff, children, young people and families”.

Household Waste: Recycling Centres across Doncaster have re-opened but with significant restrictions to protect staff and residents from the risk of coronavirus with residents asked to stay away unless their visit is essential.
“Only people with essential waste should attend Household Waste Recycling Centres (HWRCs). This includes food or “unhygienic” waste which people have been unable to fit into their black bin.
People are urged to compost or store garden waste at home if they can, but where this is not possible or the waste is beginning to smell, this can be brought to the sites but only where essential.
Those with other waste which they have accumulated for example from tidying the garage or shed in recent weeks are asked to hold onto it wherever possible until social distancing measures are relaxed”.

COVID 19 UPDATE May 17th 2020

We all want the lockdown to end but we are arguably entering the most dangerous phase of the epidemic outside London.  At the end of March there were 49 known cases of Covid 19 in Doncaster. Even with the majority of us staying at home and respecting social distancing, this has risen to a total of  629 reported cases (16th May). It is easy to imagine with a loosening of the restrictions and us all growing weary of lockdown,  how rapidly this could escalate unless we stick to the rules. If it escalates,   more Doncaster people could die and we will be back to square one.

We’ve done well in Doncaster so far, compared to some other parts of the North, so lets all stick with it,  for all our sakes.






Annual Meeting of the Parish Council 27th May 2020

In view of the Covid 19 epidemic and the associated social distancing requirements of the Government, the 2020 Annual Meeting of the Council will be a virtual meeting using Zoom technology. National legislation has been passed to allow parish council meetings to take place in this way. If a parishioner whose registered address is within the Loversall parish wishes to join the meeting using zoom, then please contact the Clerk to the Council at to make the necessary arrangements. The meeting originally scheduled for 20th May has been moved to 27th May due to Openreach undertaking work in Loversall which is interfering with broadband.
