We aim to keep residents informed as much as possible through this website. In recent months much of the news is related to the Coronavirus, but we also include news specific to our parish and non-virus related. The latest five News items are displayed on this page. You can also use the ‘Categories’ option to view news items relative to particular areas of interest.

During the CORONAVIRUS(CORVID-19) pandemic it is the aim of this website to provide as much accurate information to residents as possible. To that end we receive information direct from HM Government, Public Health England, the National Health Service and other official bodies. We publish information from those sources that are relevant to our residents and the public at large, without comment or sensational headlines. The information is published throughout the day, every day that relevant news is released.

The Parish Council has resolved to move the website hosting and management to a new provider. The precise date of the changeover has not yet been decided except that it will be sometime in January, 2021. There may be some slight disruption to the access to this site during the changeover period and access to this site will cease to be available through the current domain names once (see the note below) the new website in launched. I thank the residents who have made use of the information provided by this website over the last 12 years.

Once launched the new website can be accessed through the existing domain names www.whatton.org and whatton.org.uk.

Currently the domain name www.whatton.org.uk is being used to build the new website, there is a link back to this site.

I will attempt to keep this web site available for four weeks after the change-over to the new site to provide access to ‘old’ information, this site will be available for that short period through the whatton-in-the-vale.co.uk domain name, which I am retaining.

What 3 Words

We are encouraging our community to download the what3words app on their phones in case they need to call 999. 

Every 3m square has been assigned 3 words so that it makes it easier for services like the police or ambulance etc to find you as they can pick this up from your phone call.

The app is totally free to download and use, you can download it on iOS or Android App Stores.

You can find a full list of those services that accept what3words here:  Visit the What3words website at https://what3words.com/news/emergency/three-words-for-a-faster-emergency-response (opens in new window). Your community could also use what3words to report incidents with organisations like National Grid, Network Rail and the Environmental Agency: View how to report incidents at this website https://what3words.com/report-incident-locations-efficiently (opens in new window).
