Indoor Hospitality Reopens

This week’s milestone date of Monday 17th May has been pencilled in our diaries for a few months now – the point promised on the ‘roadmap’ for a further easing of Coronavirus restrictions in England – assuming all went to plan.

Reported Village Crime Increases Post-Lockdown

Crime statistics for Ruddington, just released by Rushcliffe Police for April 2021, show a significant rise in reported offences when compared with the first three months of this year.

Car crimes also increased during last month. Sadly, further graffiti vandalism was reported at Great Central Railway Nottingham – after a similar incident in January – whilst drive-offs without paying for…
