At the time of writing this post there is lots of availability for testing. This is community lateral flow testing with results within 20-30 minutes. The purpose is to try and identify anybody carrying the virus asymptomatically. Therefore you *do not* need to have symptoms in order to be tested there today.

If you have symptoms of Covid-19, please do not attend this testing. You need to book a standard Covid-19 test through the national portal at https://www.gov.uk/get-coronavirus-test or by calling 119.

We have just this morning been informed that there is Community Covid-19 testing available at Brown Edge Village Hall today - Monday 11th between 9am and 3pm. If you’d like to attend you need to book a space in advance. You can book a test by visiting https://staffordshire.zipporah.co.uk/TrackAndTrace/ At the time of writing this post there is lots of availability for testing.

This is community testing and the purpose is to try and identify anybody carrying the virus asymptomatically. Therefore you *do not* need to have symptoms in order to be tested there today. If you DO have Covid-19 symptoms you *should not* use this facility and instead, book a test through gov.uk here: https://www.gov.uk/get-coronavirus-test

Community asymptomatic testing is a major new tool to help identify and isolate individuals who have COVID-19 but do not have symptoms and may inadvertently be spreading the virus. Alongside the deployment of tests to NHS front-line staff, social care and other critical settings, testing of asymptomatic individuals within the community can help suppress COVID-19 and offer communities a direct route out of the toughest restrictions.

On behalf of the Parish Council, I would like to thank everyone who has decorated their homes with Christmas lights. What a fantastic show. The Judges of the competition are going to find it difficult to chose winners. It is well worth a walk round to witness it.
Just a reminder for people to display a Santa or two, even if its a card on the window, so that the Children have plenty of Santas to find for their walk around the village. Finally a big thank you to Santa and his helpers for touring the village. Here was me thinking Santa was for the kids but there were so many adults out waving at him that I realise it's for everyone who has the Christmas spirit in their heart. This is a different Christmas to be sure, but sometimes different becomes memorable.
Thank you and Merry Christmas to everyone.
