Covid-19 Update 21 December 2020

 Little Gransden Parish Council has received the following message from the Duty Commisisioner's office:


Following the weekend’s announcements, I wanted to write to you direct to pass on the latest Government guidance on forming a Christmas bubble with friends and family. I know this news has been hard to miss but given the timing of the announcement, you can’t be too careful.


For South Cambridgeshire, which is in the Tier 2 level of restrictions, here is what the updated guidance for mixing during the Christmas period says: You may see a maximum of two other households (your ‘Christmas bubble’) on Christmas Day (25 December). You cannot see anyone from a Tier 4 area.


For clarity, this allowance no longer covers the initial 5-day period. It is for Christmas Day and Christmas Day alone.


Here is the link to the full guidance:


Please remember that despite this allowance for Christmas Day only, the Government’s advice is that the safest way to celebrate Christmas this year is with your household or existing support bubble in your home. The more people you see, the more likely it is that you will catch or spread Coronavirus.


Please remember that we are here to help you in your ongoing efforts to support your community – don’t hesitate to contact your patch lead with any queries or requests for support.


I wish you and your family a safe Christmas,


Bill Handley

Lead Cabinet Member for Community Resilience, Health & Wellbeing

Covid-Safe Winter Toolkit from Cambridgeshire County Council


From Cambridgeshire County Council

Dear Colleagues,

Further to our email last week, we’ve developed an updated communications toolkit for you to share across your channels.

The messages and images in this toolkit focus on activities and ideas that people can do in the run-up to Christmas that will keep them COVID-safe. There’s also a special video from Father Christmas!

Please share with your residents and stakeholders:

If you could share these materials via your own channels and also with any community organisations in your towns and parishes, as appropriate, it would be much appreciated.

Many thanks,

Please note: The toolkit includes social media posts and a WeTransfer link to download the assets in two sizes – one for Twitter and Facebook, and a separate size for Instagram: (if the link expires, please email us to request a new link).

Mobile library suspended services

News from mobile library
As you are probably aware with the current emergency with the coronavirus outbreak, all of Cambridgeshire libraries and mobile libraries are closed for the foreseeable future. So there will be no visits from the mobile library until further notice. I have renewed all items on loan for a further 2 months until 5thJune 2020  and will let you know when I am able to return to visiting with the mobile library, . I will miss you all while not being able to visit.
But for now please keep all items bagged up when finished, as I expect all items will end up being received back and going into a quarantine period before we can deal with them.

26 MARCH 2020 7.30 p.m. Village Hall

There is a legal requirement for the Parish Council to hold an Annual Parish Meeting. At the time of posting this notice, no Government advice has been received regarding holding Parish Council meetings during the outbreak of Coronavirus (COVID-19). However, residents have been advised by Government to avoid non-essential social contact and for those over 70 years of age to self-isolate.

In this unprecedented situation Little Gransden Parish Council has, after careful consideration, decided to cancel the Annual Parish Meeting and has asked those who would normally provide reports to do so in writing to the Clerk. These will be available on the Parish Council website:

The Annual Parish Meeting is normally an opportunity for residents to ask questions, make comments and suggestions, so please contact the Clerk at

All parish council meetings are open to the public, and usually have an Open Forum, when residents have a chance to speak to items on the agenda. Topics or suggestions that you would like to be discussed must be presented in writing to the Clerk at least one week before the meeting.

The next Parish Council meeting should be the Annual General Meeting on 14 May.
