S W Water have identified a faulty valve in the supply of water to Lansdowne Park. Essential works will need to undertaken by them to rectify this problem. We now believe this will be on 14th Oct but we cannot guarantee that we will be given any exact details. If we do receive specific notice we will of course immediately inform all residents accordingly. But our ability to do so will be limited accordingly. If you have any questions please call Kelvin on 07788661349.
It has been evident over the last few weeks that there has been an increase of Covid 19 cases nationally as well as locally. For this reason please be reminded of what we can all do to help:
There are three simple actions we must all do to keep on protecting each other
- Wash hands – keep washing your hands regularly
- Cover face – wear a face covering in enclosed spaces
- Make space – stay at least 2 metres apart – or 1 metre with a face covering or other precautions
If you are required to self isolate you should not leave your home other than in very exceptional circumstances. If you are feeling unwell, get a test and do not leave home for at least 10 days. Call 119 for guidance of what to do and how to get a test and do not visit your GP or hospital unless specifically told to do so.

On Lansdowne Park there are neighbours who would help with shopping and collecting items from the pharmacy I am sure. Maybe chat with one another to ask who would be prepared to undertake some simple errands if your circumstances meant that you needed to self-isolate. Home deliveries are available, so make a plan and maybe have a few reserve essential items at home (but do not panic buy). Please ensure that any items are dropped outside where possible and minimise indoor contact with one another at the moment.
Lansdowne Park has a programme of improvements on the park. We have arranged to resurface sections of the road on Lansdowne. A provisional date is available in November 2020 to start these works. We are unable to confirm the details until nearer the time in todays climate of Covid19. As usual we will notify those likely to be affected. However it would be greatly appreciated if everyone with email addresses provide them. As a result we can communicate messages with residents. As a matter of routine it is helpful if you do change telephone numbers and email addresses that these are notified to the office. If you have any queries nearer the time please speak to Kelvin on 07788661349 as he will be liaising with the contractors.
Essential Work is being undertaken on the water supply and it may need to be disconnected for a short period estimated between 11-1 pm on Wednesday 16th September. Please call Kelvin 07788661349 for further details. Please fill you kettles and have a spare jug of water. Ensure you do not use appliances which need a water supply.
Thank you for your cooperation. Susan Yorkas
A new park home is expected to be delivered on Thursday am to be sited at plot 35. WE hope that this will not interfere with traffic on the site but I suggest that any residents who have urgent appointments on that morning that a little extra time is allowed especially for residents along Prase Coth. Kelvin will be on site if you need to speak with him- tel 07788661349, or for any updates.
The national initiative to try and control the spread of Covid 19 includes the NHS track and trace system. If you suspect you may have caught the virus or receive a call from an NHS contact tracer (it will be an 0300 number), please follow instructions. For details see NHS track and Trace.119 is the number to call for a test, or book on line by following the link above
Who can get a test
You can get a test:
- for yourself, if you have coronavirus symptoms now (a high temperature, a new, continuous cough, or a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste)
- for someone you live with, if they have symptoms
- if you live in England and have been told to have a test before you go into hospital, for example, for surgery
- if your local council asks you to get a test
You will never be asked to pay and so be aware that there are scams suggesting you need a test but must pay. This is not the case.
On 8th July Chancellor Rishi Sunak announced the £2 billion Green Homes Grant Voucher Scheme (GHGVS) which allows eligible households in England to receive vouchers worth up to £5,000 to spend on various green initiatives in the home. Later on this month (August), homeowners (including park home owners) will be able to go the Simple Energy Advice (SEA) website and get advice about which energy saving measure would suit them best.
For up to date information look at the government web site here
You’ll then be sent a list of TrustMark or (MCS) registered tradespeople (schemes which list approved construction workers by the government) in your local area to carry out the work, the Government will hand out vouchers from the end of September.
Be wary, a number of website have been set up already stating that you can claim your Voucher through them, this is not the case voucher application is ONLY available via Simple Energy Advice (SEA) website, also if you’ve been called saying you’re eligible for a Green Homes Grant this is fake. Fraud prevention scheme Cifas says it’s received reports of scammers trying to con people out of money by pretending to be part of the scheme.
Dear Lansdowne neighbours,
We will be opening the park on Friday the 10th of July and I know that many of you will be worried about this during the pandemic. We do understand, and we wanted to reassure you that we have taken many precautions so that we open as safely as possible, not just for ourselves and our customers but for the surrounding area too.
Alongside our enhanced cleaning protocols and changes to our shop and reception we have reduced our pitch capacity and have turned away a number of larger bookings that could make social distancing more difficult. All customers have had lengthy communications about being COVID aware whilst here, and like everywhere, we have a lot of signs around the place now too.
Finally, thank you for the many kind words of encouragement you have given us over the last few difficult months, it has meant such a lot to us.
