UPDATED PARISH COUNCIL OPENING TIMES AND LOCATION
Following Government Guidance issued on 19th December 2020 and the move of the Epping Forest District into Tier 4, and in accordance with Government Guidance, North Weald Bassett Parish Council staff will be working from home until further notice. Staff are equipped to operate from home and have access to emails and telephones. Therefore our Face to Face administration centre at the Thornwood Common Parish Hall will be closed until Government Guidance allows us to reopen. The Parish Hall is currently being used as a mobile COVID-19 testing Centre so access is limited during the day.

THE ANNUAL SERVICE OF REMEMBRANCE
NORTH WEALD AIRFIELD MEMORIAL & DEBT OF HONOUR
In view of the recent Government Guidance regarding Social Distancing, I would advise that the Parish Council is unable to hold the Annual Wreath Laying Service this year.
Although there will be no formal service, Parish Councillors will be paying their respects on Remembrance Sunday by laying wreaths on behalf of many organisations. Residents are encouraged to “Remember from Home” this year, although anyone would be welcome to lay their own wreath on the day, should they so wish.
At the time of writing, the Parish Council has not received notification as to whether there will be a Wreath Laying Service at the Parish War Memorial in the grounds of St Andrews Church. We would ask that any enquiries regarding this event are made direct to the North Weald Branch of the Royal British Legion.
