Good afternoon all,
It has been great to see the community spirit flourish on the Facebook groups with everyone offering to assist each other through these difficult times. We hope that you all stay safe, and continue to engage in such a helpful way, as I imagine that is one of the main aspects we all wish for from the area we live in.
We have been advised that 2 of the new unit tenants have now signed their agreements and are just awaiting commencement of fit-outs (which we imagine may be a little delayed due to the pandemic). We wish them both the best of luck, and hopefully we can make good use of them once the pandemic is under control.
Taylor Wimpey will be shutting down all sites by the end of this week, all sales offices were closed as of last night. Persimmon yet to comment.
A note from Oliver Thompson – Newcastle Great Park:
“Further to the ongoing and ever-changing coronavirus pandemic we have been constantly reviewing the latest government guidelines.
In light of the latest government announcement we can confirm that as of today (Tuesday 24th March 2020) all play area facilities across the Great Park will be closed until further notice. We will continue to review the latest information and update any further policies/procedures as the pandemic develops and the guidance changes. Signage will be erected at the various play areas to reinforce this closure.
We also regret to inform you all that the weekly Friday night food vans will be cancelled until the end of April. Again, this situation will be under continuous review and if anything changes further we will keep you informed.
We strongly urge residents to follow the guidance and to stay at home. We appreciate the need for daily exercise and the need to use the open spaces and footpaths for this, but would urge all residents to take precautions and strictly adhere to the social distancing policies at all times. Further details on the ever-changing situation can be found following the link:
These are unprecedented times and it is important that we all do what we can to protect our National Health Service and minimise the spread of the virus. Thank you for your continued support and cooperation.
Stay at home and take care.”
