Daily Newsletter 10th May 2020


There was lots of virtual activity on the WhatsApp group yesterday, with swaps galore and a very complicated van run. More collections and drop offs are scheduled for this morning. It makes sense for one person to go round rather than lots of cars be moving around the settlements.

Bloms have now raised over £1,100 for the Great Ormond Street Hospital for Sick Children through their sale of tulips in local Villages. It has been a fantasic demonstration of both their generosity and that of residents in donating. Thank you to you all!

Four buckets of tulips went to Brockfield House in Stanwick which cares for people living with dementia. They put their arrangements in their memory tree display for the day.

Brockfield House residents arranged their tulips as part of their memory tree for the day.


None that we know of! But there is a big birthday coming up tomorrow - watch this space.


346 deaths were reported by the Government yesterday taking us to 31,587 across the UK. The number of new lab confirmed cases was still over 3,896. Both figures are down but this is likely to be due to the usual weekend reporting problems.


In Northamptonshire the figures continue to be corrected daily and yesterday showed a jump to 14 new infections.
