The Bottle Top – Specialist Beer & Eco Shop

Yet again this pandemic, villagers are relying on Ruddington’s The Bottle Top to keep them stocked with essential items now that the toughest, national restrictions to combat the spread of COVID-19 are back in place. Whilst the new wave of Coronavirus and a third ‘lockdown’ have forced some of our village shops to close yet again, husband and wife team Anthony and Alex Preston are continuing to provide us with all their usual supplies. These include plastic-free fruit and veg, dried zero waste goods such as rice, nuts and oats, local pastries…

January Record for Benwell Daykin

The UK property market enjoyed a mini boom in the second half of 2020. The question on everybody’s lips is: “Why is this, and will it continue in 2021?” The property market in England is fully open in its entirety, meaning that Benwell Daykin is allowed to conduct in-person valuations and house viewings, meaning buyers are able to move home despite the ‘lockdown’ measures currently in place. Since the middle of 2020, the UK property market has been on the rise which has seen transaction numbers rise significantly. Provisional data…

Ruddington Buses During the Third ‘Lockdown’

Even though the whole of England has been put back under ‘lockdown’ to combat a new surge of COVID-19 infections, our village’s main bus operator says this will not alter the existing schedules of either its Navy 3 or Green 10 services for the time being. With our schools now unexpectedly closed again, Nottingham City Transport (NCT) says the only buses which will not run are those specifically to accommodate extra travelling schoolchildren – such as the term time Navy 3 15:30 weekday service from Wilford Lane (ROKO) to the City. NCT hopes that, by otherwise maintaining its current…

Benwell Daykin 1st Birthday Offers

It has been quite a year for Benwell Daykin! Following our successful launch in January 2020, we found ourselves somewhat tested, time and time again. Firstly, by a huge leak in our office wall, followed by the first national lockdown and finally by the Ruddington High Street flooding. But, through it all, we continue to trade and have been encouraged by how warmly we have been received by the Ruddington community. As we unfortunately enter another national ‘lockdown’, I’m delighted to say that the property industry remains open under the following…

Ruddington Buses Under Tier 4

Following the announcement that Ruddington will be put into England’s ‘new’ highest level of COVID-19 restrictions to start 2021, our village’s main bus operator says the latest change will not alter the existing schedules of either its Navy 3 or Green 10 services. Nottingham City Transport (NCT) hopes that, by maintaining its current service levels under Tier 4, buses will continue to be less busy to enable better social distancing (and therefore safer travel) as we head back to work.* NCT says: “Nottingham and Nottinghamshire moving to Tier 4 restrictions from Thursday 31st December 2020 has…

Where’s My Bus?

If you’re a frequent user of Ruddington’s Navy 3 or Green 10 buses, inevitably you will find times when our village services aren’t quite running to schedule – due to heavy traffic, mechanical problems, or other issues. As well as the illuminated displays at many bus stops, for a while you’ve also been able to check on the NCTX website or ‘phone app what time the next bus(es) will actually be reaching your stop, to prevent unnecessary hanging about in the cold. Now Nottingham City Transport (NCT) has gone a stage further…

Ruddington Buses’ Return to Tier 3

Following the second national ‘lockdown’ in England, Ruddington’s main bus operator says the return to a slightly less stringent set of Tier 3 COVID-19 restrictions this December will not alter the existing schedules of either its Navy 3 and Green 10 village services.* It’s hoped that Nottingham City Transport (NCT) maintaining its current service levels will mean emptier buses – for improved social distancing and therefore safer travel up to the festive holidays.
