Coronavirus - (COVID-19). Guidance for social distancing can be found on this Government website.

It is obvious from the recent ramp up in infection figures and the recent Government's 'rule of six', that Covid 19 is still well and truly with us. I have certainly noticed a relaxing of social distancing around the Town. I have also received many questions regarding the Car Show and Christmas Market - asking why they could not be taking place, proof that some people think that Covid is no longer a threat. How on earth could any right-minded person think that we could run these events and maintain social distancing? Please, everybody, just be careful.

Dandara have purchased a field adjacent to their existing development in Aspenden Road and will shortly be submitting an application to build a further 23 dwellings there. Widening a section of Aspenden Road is included in their proposal - this would be welcomed but I am not sure that the addition of another 23 dwellings and the resultant traffic is worth it. Buntingford Town Council will make their representations to EHDC once they have received and reviewed the application.

I must admit that I am not a huge user of Facebook but it does make me laugh at times. A clearly disaffected dog walker complained that they couldn't take their usual walk because the farmer had had the temerity to plough his field and the footpath had gone. Quite obviously the farmers have to plough their fields and if footpaths are affected they have 15 days to re-instate them.

I have been informed that, unfortunately, there will be no Santa in Buntingford this year - another casualty of Covid. Whilst this is completely understandable it is such a shame and the children of the Town - and many adults - will be so disappointed. This, on top of the Christmas Market cancellation, will make for a less festive occasion. However, the Christmas lights will still be in operation; as it stands at the moment they will be switched on as usual on the last Friday in November.

The Civic Society has recently updated and re-issued its 'Discovering Buntingford' booklet and a copy has been delivered to every household in the town. It is most gratifying to note that we have received many complimentary messages of thanks following its delivery. I hope that you all enjoy it.
