Leonard Stanley and Kings Stanley Parish Councils have teamed up to provide free pizza (plus cake, fruit and a drink) for the children of our villages. The events will take place at 1pm every Tuesday during August, outside Kings Stanley village hall (it will be inside the VH if it is raining but social distancing must be observed). To avoid disappointment please register your interest by emailing clerk@leonardstanley-pc.gov.uk or respond to the facebook post on Love the Stanleys. More »

Play Equipment

Play Equipment

As per the current Government Advice - the play equipment will be able to be used from the 4th July. Please note that the equipment is not cleaned therefore ensure that children wash their hands or use hand sanitiser before and after playing there.

Maintain 2m social distancing with other users.
Keep your face and hands as clean as possible. Bring your own hand sanitising.
Avoid crowded spaces, if the equipment is busy consider coming back later. More »

If any family member is experiencing COVID-19 symptoms the whole family must self-isolate at home and should not visit any communal facilities

It is impossible to fully negate all risks of contracting the Covid-19 virus (or other infection) at a place like a playground, which can be frequented by large numbers of people, who may have differing views about social distancing and hygiene. It is also unclear how long the coronavirus can live on plastic, timber and metal playground structures. » Less

Stroud District Council - Discretionary Business Grants

Stroud District Council are looking to support those businesses who continue to have premises costs, have suffered a drop in income as a result of Covid19 and have not previously had grants. The priority businesses are in five main categories.

  • Small businesses in shared offices or flexible workspaces
  • Regular market traders
  • Bed & breakfast premises which pay Council Tax
  • Charity properties
  • Hospitality premises slightly too big for the original government grant scheme (this is a local expansion of the scheme for us. Central government only asked us to cover the first four)

Applications will be open until midnight on 21st June and we aim to begin paying by June 25th. More »

An application is of course no guarantee of being awarded a grant but there will be many businesses eligible for this scheme of which the Council is not already aware. The application process is therefore critical. » Less
