Meeting with friends and family

Enjoy half term in Nottinghamshire safely!

Nottinghamshire is here to welcome you back, safely. With fantastic attractions, restaurants and cafes you can have a great day out with the kids this half term. Whether your plans include catching up with friends, taking the kids on a day out or enjoying a walk in the park, we’d like to remind you to be safe and cautious. Try to stick to small groups, plan ahead and avoid crowded places.

Are you still looking for some inspiration? Half term isn’t over yet and we have some family fun ideas for you available on our website.

Residents encouraged to come forward for the vaccine

Jonathan Gribbin

The vaccine protects you from getting ill from Covid-19. We’re delighted our local NHS has now delivered over 900,000 vaccines in Nottinghamshire and Nottingham. Jonathan Gribbin, Public Health Director for Nottinghamshire, explains the importance of the vaccine and is urging residents to book their vaccine as soon as it’s offered to them.

Protect yourself and others

Meeting outside is safer

Whilst you enjoy the reopening of businesses and attractions in Nottinghamshire, remember the basics Hands Face Space and Fresh Air. It is safer to socialise outdoors and you can meet up to 30 people outside. If you’re meeting indoors, stick to a group of six or two households, and remember to open a window to let the fresh air in to reduce the chances of Covid-19 transmission.

Stop the spread

Are you ready for the big lunch?

Save the date

This weekend’s Big Lunch is a national annual initiative helping to celebrate neighbours and communities coming together, making new connections, offering support and of course, having fun!

This is a great time to join your neighbours outdoors for lunch or a cuppa – either online, on your doorstep or over the fence.

While many lockdown restrictions will have eased, remember that gatherings of up to 30 will be allowed in public spaces – do check the latest guidance for meeting friends and family.

Do share your stories, photos with us by tagging us on @nottscc (Twitter) or @Nottinghamshire (Facebook) or email so we can share your photos on our website and other channels.
