One of the unfortunate side effects of lockdowns and restrictive measures has been the impact on the High Street and local businesses.
To help stir up business in the village and get them through the crisis, on Wednesday the 11th of November the Parish Council launched the Tibshelf Shop Local campaign to run through to the end of March.
The campaign began on Facebook by sharing links to the pages of as many Tibshelf businesses as possible, which included those with a shop, and those who are online or sole traders.
A ‘shopping map’ of Tibshelf has been compiled to give a visual representation of the businesses and their locations in the village.
The map is designed to give you an easy way to see where the businesses are located. Inclusion is not necessarily an endorsement and so please do your own checks on reputation and service. Due to space constraints, we are unable to include every single business on the map, but we can look to include you in our Facebook campaign and when we update the map in the future.

Update on Coronavirus / COVID-19
Following the latest advice and subsequent directives from Government, the Council has made the decision to close the Village Hall, Pavilion and Parish Meeting Room to user groups and hirers as of Monday 23rd of March 2020 until further notice. As of Tuesday 21st of July 2020, the Parish Council decided to reopen the playgrounds on Shetland Road and Lincoln Street, and the exercise equipment, subject to social distancing requirements and other protective measures. All other facilities are being constantly reviewed until such time they are safe to reopen.
The cemetery on Doe Hill Lane and the Shetland Road recreation field do remain open at this time. However, residents should practise social distancing at all times when using these facilities.
It is was with regret that Parish Council meetings had been suspended, but we are now holding hybrid meetings partly in person and partly online, which have been allowed by the Government..All Parish business will continue and should any resident have concerns or matters they wish to raise then please email the clerk at email@example.com or call 01773 875093.
With regards to the users of the Village Hall, the regular groups are aware of this decision and some had already decided to cease activity.
For those individuals who had made private bookings for parties etc. we hope that you will choose to re-book your event when safe and reasonable later in the year.
All Council staff will continue to work, where it is practical to do so whilst ensuring staff wellbeing and welfare. The Clerk will continue to work partially at the office and at home, the Communications and Project Officer is working remotely from home, and the Administration Assistant is working in the office Tuesday and Wednesday mornings.
Updates will be made on the Parish Council website and Facebook page as appropriate. Thank you for your co-operation and please stay safe and healthy.

Due to the Remembrance parades being cancelled, we could still show our gratitude to the fallen by displaying poppies in windows leading up to Remembrance Sunday on the 8th of November.
