PLANS. Members of East Leake Parish Council Planning Committee have not raised any objections to an applicatio­n to erect a single storey rear extension with a pitched roof and roof lights at the Inglenook at the Nook in the village.

Nor have councillor­s raised any objections to an applicatio­n to erect a single storey side and rear extension at 11 Brookfield­s Way in the village.

HEALTH CENTRE REMINDER. A reminder has been put out to East Leake Health Centre for them to be aware a significan­t number of theirr workforce including GPs and Reception/Administra­tion staff are isolating.

Says a statement for the group which covers East Leake and others including Sutton Bonington: “This means that we are currently running at a reduced capacity, during a time when we are already experienci­ng an exceptiona­lly high demand on our services.

We apologise in advance for any delays this may cause, and as always we endeavour to continue to provide the best possible service to our patients under the circumstan­ces.”

MEADOW PARK VOLUNTEERS. East Leake’s Meadow Park volunteers continue their good work to ensure the popular amenity is kept in good condition.

The meadows were cut after the flowers had set their seeds and the park has been tidied up ready for autumn/ winter. The Arboretum was not mown this year as it is cut every other year. The margins by the pathways are cut back on a regular basis to keep the paths neat.

A recent work session saw some volunteer harvesting wild flower seeds to be scattered next year in areas where flowers are sparse. Approximat­ely 30% of the seeds were taken, allowing the rest to self-spread. Other volunteers used long handled bill hooks to attack nettles and Himalayan Balsam in the area of the brook.
