Cartoon depicting coronavirusesThurston is in Tier One. The 'rule of six' applies and face masks must be worn in all indoor public settings. Many groups and activities have been suspended for the foreseeable future. It is unlikely that things will return to normal before the end of the year. For those events that are taking, you are advised to check with organisers before attending as numbers may be limited due to social distancing rules. The situation is fast-changing, and further announcements by the Government are likely to take place in the coming weeks and months.  In the event of an increase in Covid-19 cases in the local area, more restrictions will be re-imposed, and it likely that this will be at short notice. 

Services have resumed at Holy Innocents and St Peter's Church. If you wish to attend, you must book in advance - please contact Rev'd Manette (revmcrossman@gmail.com)Please note, social distancing measures will apply.
