COVID-19 Update – Staffordshire in ‘Tier 3’ from 3 December

Along with many other parts of the UK and most of the Peak District, Alstonefield has been put into the highest Tier of restrictions from Wednesday 2 December. Details of what this means can be found on GovUK here.

The Alstonefield Parish COVID-19 Action & Support Group is still supporting residents who need help – just go to its Facebook/Messenger page or complete the details on the Contact page of this website and we will will forward your message.
  • The Village Hall remains open for the Post Office (an essential service) and certain other permitted activities (the list includes takeaway food services, children’s supervised activities; temporary office work; funeral wakes, etc.). Remember that face masks must be worn in the premises unless exemptions apply.  See Village Hall page here.
  • ‘Pop-up’ cafe Until the end of the year, takeaway refreshments will be available at weekends between 9am and 3pm at the Village Hall. As well as providing income for the Hall during these difficult times, we hope this will be a welcomed community service and support the visitor economy. If well supported, it will continue into 2021. (Facebook link here.)
