Davidson’s Ashfield Farm Development Appeal
We need your help!
As many will be aware, despite having been rejected three times, Davidsons is appealing the refusal of its planning application for 120 houses near the Primary School at the top of Kirkby Rd. This hearing with the Planning Inspectorate is to take place in March, with a 28th February deadline for representations from the public regarding the Appeal.
National lockdown – January 2021
UK Gov rules for sports and physical activity state:
“Indoor gyms and sports facilities will remain closed. Outdoor sports courts, outdoor gyms, golf courses, outdoor swimming pools, archery/driving/shooting ranges and riding arenas must also close. Organised outdoor sport for disabled people is allowed to continue.”
This means that both indoor and outdoor activities at Sport in Desford are cancelled until further notice
To be clear this includes football, netball and tennis
Remember, ‘Hands. Face. Space’:
- hands – wash your hands regularly and for 20 seconds
- face – wear a face covering in indoor settings where social distancing may be difficult, and where you will come into contact with people you do not normally meet
- space – stay 2 metres apart from people you do not live with where possible, or 1 metre with extra precautions in place (such as wearing face coverings)
…….. but we will be back! ….. Believe it!!!
The coronavirus crisis is unprecedented in modern times. Physical activity matters during this period and, actually, we think it’s more important than ever right now. We want to do everything that we can to support people to get and stay active, provided they are well enough.
As a result Leicester Rutland Sport (LRS) have now been able to launch their Healthy At Home offer which they will continue to develop and promote over the forthcoming months and are looking for support from partners to do so.
Their Healthy At Home webpage (www.lrsport.org/HealthyAtHome) hosts a range of resources, links, hints and tips to support people be Active At Home, Work At Home, Wellbeing At Home. This will be an expanding and developing resource.
Where are we?
