Corona Virus News – No.1

Dear Residents,

We hope you’re safe and looking after yourselves in these uncertain times.  

The committee is aware a number of vunerable households are pro-actively self isolating in line with the government guidance, and therefore unable to leave their houses.  Please find attached a summary of some of the local delivery options available in case it’s of any help.

As per our earlier letter if there is anyone who needs any support, prescriptions or shopping collecting, or just a friendly chat to help pass the time, please also feel free to contact a member of the committee ( contact numbers are being posted ).


In view of the currently suspended recycling and green waste collections, please consider parking arrangements on the street to ensure the general refuse collection vehicles will be able to access all the houses on the estate.  

We’re also trying to add useful information to the Chalklands website ( so it’s available for all to access if helpful.

Many Thanks and stay safe,

The Committee.
