Coronavirus

Over the next few days, weeks and months we are going to need to support each other in a way we have never needed to before.

During this time the Ullesthorpe website will try to act as a useful source of information for people.

There is now a CORONAVIRUS section of the website.  Click on CORONAVIRUS at the top of this page to reach the relevant pages.

If you have any ideas about what you, or others, might find useful please send to info@ullesthorpe.org

Latest information

Thursday 2nd April 17.30

There are currently lots of people still going to work to provide services for us all.  This includes the people who collect our bins every week and who deliver our post every day.  These people are having to work extra hard as many of their colleagues are absent because of the coronavirus.  Why not put a notice on your bin to say thank you to the bin collectors (you could also sanitise the handle for them) and a notice in your window to thank the postman/woman and others who are bringing deliveries direct to your house.
