VE Day 2020 – Friday 8th May 2020

VE Day 2020 – Friday 8th May

It is hard to believe that we are just a few days away from the 75th Anniversary of VE Day, the end of the War in Europe.  However, like so many thousands of communities and individuals throughout our great nation, we are disappointed we are all unable to celebrate this important milestone in history in the wonderful ways we had planned.

You can, however, have a ‘STAY AT HOME PARTY’, lots of people will be decorating their front gardens in Red, White & Blue and having a picnic.

Also, there are still plenty of other ways that you can celebrate this historic day:

  • The Royal British Legion is calling on people across the UK to join in a moment of reflection and Remembrance at 11amon Friday 8th May, the 75th Anniversary of VE Day, and pause for a Two Minute Silence.
  • Castledown FM are broadcasting a VE Day special from 12pm – 7pm. These radio shows include a broadcast by a D-Day veteran from 12pm – 2pm, A Street Party broadcast from 2pm – 4pm, a VE Day Time Tunnel Special from 4-5pm with John Sparrow and a special show with music and interviews with BP and Laura from 5pm – 7pm.
  • 55pm – Buglers across the Nation will be playing “The Last Post”
  • 3pm – The Nation’s Toast – please raise a glass!

 

With social distancing measures still in place, the pack provided by Wiltshire Council (link below) contains simple advice and suggestions on how to have a household garden party on Friday 8 May, which this year is a bank holiday.

The pack also contains themed recipe ideas, a World War II/VE Day quiz and wordsearch, some suggested e-reading materials from our library service, craft ideas on how to make bunting and paperchains, 1940s-inspired games and songs to sing to keep the family entertained.

Important message from the NHS

Don’t delay seeking medical help because of coronavirus

People living in Wiltshire are being advised not to let worries about coronavirus stop them asking for medical help for themselves or their children if they become ill, have a serious accident or have a concern about their health.

They are also being warned that not seeking medical help for symptoms that could be the early warning signs of serious conditions such as cancer could be putting lives at risk.

The warning comes as new data shows a considerable drop in the number of people coming forward to ask their GP for help and advice during the coronavirus outbreak.

Recent statistics show that, in Bath alone, the total number of weekly referrals from GPs to the Royal United Hospital have fallen from around 2,000 at the beginning of March to 300 at the end of April.

In Swindon, the average number of patients being sent by their GP to the Great Western Hospital for further investigations into symptoms that suggest cancer each week has dropped by more than 200 to 80.

Dr Ruth Grabham, Medical Director at BaNES, Swindon and Wiltshire CCG, said the statistics made for worrying reading because the drop in numbers  “is not because people are not experiencing symptoms.”

“While it may seem that coronavirus has put a stop to most aspects of everyday life, the one thing it hasn’t stopped is what’s going on inside our bodies,” she says. “Now more than ever, we need to pay attention to anything that isn’t normal and seek help early on.

“For example, if you notice blood when going to the toilet, or if you’ve found a lump that wasn’t there previously, or if you’ve just noticed something odd that is causing you to worry, you need to speak to your GP.

“Should the symptom be the early warning sign of something serious like cancer, that delay in seeking help could have serious implications for how successful possible treatments may be.”

Although GP practices across the region have adopted new ways of working, such as establishing isolated clinics for potential coronavirus patients, the practices themselves are still open to offer care, treatment, advice and peace-of-mind.

The same also goes for emergency departments at the three hospitals in Bath, Swindon and Salisbury, all of which continue to be open 24 hours a day for people with a genuine and life-threatening health concern.

Additionally, all healthcare facilities in the region, as well as those elsewhere in the country, have put in place stringent infection control measures to ensure that the risk of contracting coronavirus while visiting a hospital or GP surgery remains low.

Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme

The online service to claim 80% of wages costs, up to £2,500 per month, for furloughed staff (employees who have been asked to stop working but have not been made redundant) is now open. Employers who apply by Wednesday 22 April 2020 will receive their money before the end of the month.

This is a temporary scheme in place for four months starting from 1 March 2020, but it may be extended if necessary and employers can use this scheme anytime during this period. It is designed to help employers whose operations have been severely affected by coronavirus to retain their employees and protect the UK economy. All employers are eligible to claim under the scheme.

Ludgershall Pharmacy Notice

Ludgershall Pharmacy

Please avoid phoning the Ludgershall Pharmacy unless you really have to.

Our local Pharmacy has experienced unprecedented numbers of phone calls in the last few days and constantly trying to answer the phone only slows down the Pharmacy staff’s ability to dispense prescriptions for everyone.

Our local Vicar has a team of volunteers helping us with managing our queue and helping to speed up the process of people collecting their prescriptions as much as we can. (Thank you to almost everyone for trying to maintain the 2m social-distancing guidelines.)

If you don’t have a neighbour or family members of friends who can pick up your prescription for you, please email Help Your Neighbour – Wiltshire and our local Vicar can pick it up for you and his team will deliver your prescription to your door.

Unfortunately this service is only available to you if you are over-60 or if you don’t have to pay for your prescriptions because we can’t take money to pay for prescriptions.

To request home-delivery please email Help Your Neighbour – Wiltshire helpyourneighbourwiltshire@outlook.com (this is your quickest option) or leave an answerphone message on 07824 445291

A night-time lane closure will be in place on the roundabout on weeknights only, from 8pm to 6am, for three weeks of drainage and sewerage surveys starting on Monday, 7 October.

Following the launch of an 18-month procurement process in July, the project reached another milestone at the beginning of October with the conclusion of the six-month Development Consent Order examination.

Next steps are for the examining authority to review the DCO application, they have three months to make a recommendation to the Secretary of State for Transport, who is expected to make a decision in spring 2020.Survey work for A303 Stonehenge scheme enters next phase Survey work for A303 Stonehenge scheme enters next phase
