Councillor Andrew Johnson, leader of the RBWM council, said: “Last week given our borderline status and likely projected increase in cases I asked government to consider whether it was appropriate or not for us to move into high-risk tier two. Since then the rise in our number of cases has slightly abated, but the potential for underlying infection remains extremely high. As a result, and based upon the data before us, in discussions with government we have requested to remain in tier one for now pending further review, to which the government has agreed. However, our numbers are such that we remain on the cusp of tier two and all the additional restrictions on our lives this would bring. We must not be complacent. We must continue to follow the guidance. We must stop the spread. Doing this may help us avoid tier two.

We will keep the situation under constant review and any decisions on further restriction will be based upon data, the expert advice of our dedicated public health professionals, and liaison with government. The Royal Borough is now regularly publishing local data so that residents can see and appreciate the trends that are guiding our decision making.

KART CLUB RACE DAY CANCELLATIONS DON'T DETER PAPPLEWICK FROM RACE TRIALS | The annual Kart Club races between schools from all over the country, run by Greenpower Ltd who provide all of the kits needed to make the battery powered electric karts were of course cancelled due to Covid over the summer but this did not deter Papplewick.

The races are for Year 6 boys only, so all of the boys who took part in the construction of the karts ( now of course in year 7) have had great fun taking part in in-house trial races around the school organised by Ged Parr who runs the activity.

Tom Bunbury, Headmaster said “This is such a popular activity and the boys took great care in constructing two magnificent karts so it was disappointing for them not to have been able to compete with other schools over the summer, but in-house racing proved a popular choice and highlighted some budding racing drivers!”
