Following the Government’s relaxation of Covid-19 measures from Monday 1st June, your Council has made the decision that the playing field needs to remain closed and locked. Although the rules allow the playing field to be open, it is the Council's obligation to ensure the playground equipment is not, and cannot, be used. We have examined the task this would involve and, with advice from the local authority, it is considered too onerous and costly.

Dear Councillor


I am writing to express my thanks for the support and help that you are offering during these challenging times. I have been so pleased to read and hear of all the good work going on in your area and how people have risen to this challenge.  

I am aware that there are many individuals and groups going above and beyond what might be expected of them. I would normally be spending a significant part of my time visiting organisations, businesses and charities to recognise and acknowledge their contributions being made in the County. I can still do some of this remotely and sending letters, emails and videos offering support, encouragement, thanks or condolence.  

Hello all,

Due to the continuing situation with lots of cancelled events, the Compton Chronicle team would like to continue to invite anyone with an article (historical, poem, or information) that would be of interest to the local community to submit it for publication in the July edition which will once again be an online PDF version.

Please send to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.  before 12th June.

Also, for July/August we usually only issue one edition but as we are not paying for printing at the moment, there will be one issue for July and one for August. As everything is changing so fast we don't want things being too far out of date.

Many thanks, The Chronicle Editorial Team.

The Compton Chronicle is not being distributed in paper copy this month. An electronic copy can be found in the link below.
