£1m Community Fund

£1m Community Fund.
We know that for many groups, including many parish and town councils acting as umbrella organisations for smaller groups, extra costs will be incurred, which is what our £1m community fund is intended for. So if you haven’t already applied, the fund is still open. These grants, up to £10,000, are helping with the additional costs of delivering essential local support to those most affected by this public health emergency, such as collecting and delivering food and medicines for people who are self-isolating and people who can’t leave their homes.

While the majority of public have got behind the national efforts, a small minority have committed assaults on key workers as they worked to protect the public.

University of Nottingham – Sutton Bonington Campus – NOW CLOSED

To all local partners and associates,

Firstly, I hope everyone is keeping well, in every sense of the phrase.

The UoN Sutton Bonington campus is now closed.
The only exception is essential University staff and a small number of students that have not been able to return to their permanent family address.

Recently, we have seen instances of families, couples and individuals travelling to and using the campus for walks and cycle rides. Under normal circumstances we’d encourage the local community to enjoy our campus in this fashion. Unfortunately, we must now request for this not to happen. I appreciate the examples we have seen recently may not have necessarily been people from the immediate local area but I’d greatly appreciate your help if you could communicate to your network of residents that the campus is closed to visitors.

Many thanks for any assistance you can provide in this matter and if you have any questions, comments or concerns then please don’t hesitate to get in touch.

Kind regards, Jamie.
