Tuesday 24th March 2020 Village Update in Response to the Prime Ministers Coronavirus Update
Following the Prime Ministers announcement last night and the new measures taken to combat the Coronavirus pandemic, the childrens playground on the recreation ground will be closed with immediate effect.
Both the Sports Centre and Jubilee Hall will remain closed, however the recreation ground will remain open and accessible for exercise purposes only. Unfortunately the new Community Library, located at the bus stop opposite the Red Lion pub has also been closed to help stop the potential spread of the virus. The library will be reiated once we are allowed to do so.
Parish Council meetings have also been postponed for the next 12 weeks. The annual meeting of the council has also postponed and a new date will be advised in line with government advice.
On a more positive note, there seems to be many rainbows popping in windows around the village as a sign of hope. Please do join in! If you have any other on how a little bit of joy can be spread amongst the community at this time then please dont hesitate to share your ideas. We would also like to thank those helping others in community at this time.
Please follow governmental advice. Stay at home wherever possible. Only shop for essential food items and medicines when necessary and as infrequently as possible. Whilst one form of exercise is permitted a day, please ensure any exercise is done alone or with those in your household only.
The Parish Council send their best wishes to all Parishioners. Stay safe and healthy.

Friday 20th March 2020 2020 Local Elections and Parish Council Elections Update
As you may be aware, all local elections have now been postponed until May 2021 due to the Coronavirus Pandemic. This includes the new Buckinghamshire Council which will continue from the 1st April with the shadow cabinet and the current councillors.
At the time of writing this, we do not know whether Kingsbrook or Broughton Hamlet will remain with Bierton Parish Council or go on their own as planned. It could be difficult with no elections.
We will keep you updated and ask for your patience and understanding at this time.

I do appreciate this will inconvenience drivers, and I apologise for this… We’re expected contractors to be working continuously, to make the best use of the time, and our highways officers will be monitoring the siutation closely.”
Jo Alden, Technical Director at Barratt and David Wilson Homes North Thames, said:
“We would like to apologies to all those that may be affected by this change and offer our assurance that when in operation, the traffic light signals will be permanently manned in order to minimise disruption caused.”
