Coronavirus Help

As everyone knows we are facing an extremely difficult time, and for some in our community there will be severe problems with shopping, getting prescriptions, and other errands.
I'm therefore writing to ask if:

a) You would be willing to volunteer to take on shopping and other tasks for those villagers unable to do so because of the need for them to self-isolate or their current support network cannot help due to illness
b) If you would like assistance because you are residents who are self-isolating

For volunteers, please register your interest using this email address .
For those needing help - please telephone 01423 330561 or email:

We will deliver a copy of this email to all houses in Little Ouseburn and if you wish additional email addresses to be registered for future emails please respond again to

I'm sure that with mutual support we can get through this difficult time together.

Following the installation of the village gates by the Parish Council, many people have commented that speeds of vehicles seem to have been reduced. Many thanks to County Councillor Andy Paraskos for his significant contribution to both sets of gates. The Parish Council hope you are pleased with the gates and have noted the benefits they appear to have brought. A new village sign will be installed on the approach from Great Ouseburn in the near future.
