Government Release Stage 3


April 2021

Step 3 -

KWSS - act like you have it - external Further easing of restrictions next week

Step 3 easements will go ahead from Monday 17 May. Up to six people or two households will be able to meet indoors. Overnight stays will also be allowed and groups of up to 30 people may meet outdoors.

Hospitality venues, including pubs and restaurants, will be allowed to open indoors for groups of six.

Indoor entertainment venues like cinemas and theatres will be allowed to open.

Up to 30 people will be able to attend weddings, funerals, and wakes.

Care home residents will be able to have up to five named visitors, with two visitors able to attend at once provided they are tested and follow infection control measures. Residents will also have greater freedom to leave their home without having to isolate on their return. Visit for further guidance.

Residents are reminded to continue following the guidance. Please wash your hands regularly, keep your distance from others and wear a face covering where necessary. Making sure indoor spaces are well ventilated also helps reduce the spread.

Lavant Fete & Celebration Week 2021 - CANCELLED


March 2021

The Government's roadmap out of the Covid-19 restrictions mean that sadly we are unable to hold the Fete on 19th June as planned.

As the stages for releasing us from the restrictions are not guaranteed, the other events planned for 21st-27th June are also potentially at serious risk.

Therefore, the Fete Committee has taken the decision to cancel all the plans for the Fete and Celebration Week.

This decision has not been taken lightly. There was much agonising over what was the right thing to do, but in light of all the various risks involved, it was ultimately felt that we had no real choice.
It is hoped that some sort of community event that everyone can enjoy will be possible at a later date.
The Hall Committee and the History Project will make independent decisions about any separate anniversary celebrations they may wish to hold.

NHS Covid-19 App


September 2020

NHS app Dear residents and partners,

The new NHS COVID-19 app launches today. It allows you to report symptoms, order a coronavirus test, and check into venues by simply scanning a QR code.

We’re encouraging all residents to download the new app to help prevent the spread of coronavirus in West Sussex.

Some of our businesses, such as restaurants and pubs, will be legally required to display a QR code poster for you to scan. This means that if you visit the venue and later test positive for coronavirus, other app users who were there at the same time may be sent an alert, if necessary.

The app does this while protecting your anonymity. Nobody, including the government, will know who or where a particular user is. Instead, your postcode district (the first part of your postcode) helps the app work out where the virus is spreading.

Without a vaccine or treatment, we all need to do everything we can to help stop the spread of coronavirus in our county. The new app is an important part of the government’s programme. By downloading and using the app, you’ll be helping to protect those around you – friends, family, colleagues and local communities.

More information about the app is available on the GOV.UK website.

Earlier this week, the Prime Minister announced new guidelines to help reduce the spread of coronavirus. Please ensure you are following the rules – you can remind yourself of the very latest guidance online.

Finally, a reminder that our community hub service is still running for elderly and vulnerable residents who may need extra support during this difficult time. If you, or someone you know needs extra help please visit our community hub page.

Thank you for your continued support.
