Coronavirus: ‘Stay at home’ plea from Gedling MP Tom Randall as Easter holiday gets underway


Gedling MP Tom Randall is urging people across the borough not to break lockdown rules as the Easter holidays get underway.

In a message to Gedling Eye readers, Mr Randall said: “As we look towards the coming Easter Bank Holiday Weekend, I would like to reiterate the Government’s message of ‘Stay home, Protect the NHS, Save lives’.

“I know it will be tempting to meet up with friends and family as we normally would, but it is so important that we don’t mix with others outside of our own households and only leave our homes for essential shopping or daily exercise.

“As well as helping to slow the spread of coronavirus, this will mean less pressure on our police, who are currently experiencing higher callouts to reports of antisocial behaviour.

The MP for Gedling also thanked local emergency services who are working so hard to keep us safe at this very uncertain time.

He also paid tribute to the work of local volunteer groups, under the umbrella of the Giving for Gedling network, who are helping the elderly and vulnerable across our communities.

Mr Randall said “It is so important that we can rely on our emergency services at this time and I thank all those across Gedling who are working so hard to keep us safe. I am also heartened by the response to Giving for Gedling by people who want to help their neighbours through local isolation support groups.

“I wish all Gedling residents a very Happy Easter”.
