Winter Windows event in Lady Bay, 4th and 5th December, arranged by Lady Bay School Asociation. Everyone is encouraged to get involved by illuminate their street-facing windows between 5.30pm and 8.30pm, creating an after-dark walking trail of glowing windows. If you’re planning on transforming a window for Winter Windows please complete a registration form by the 2nd of December at https://tinyurl.com/ladybaywindowreg2020, so that they can map participants on an online map.  Once you have completed your registration they will send you a handy guide to the event and a link for making an optional donation to support raising funds for Lady Bay Primary School.  Then just get planning your window display.

And yet another Councillors' Connection Briefing 12 November 2020 - this one does include more information, honest!

And another Councillors' Connection Briefing 10 November 2020 - This one includes reference to the contribution our Councillor, Sue Mallender, has made as Mayor to the Remembrance Day commemoration, plus how Lady Bay commemorated Remebrance Sunday.  Also three Lady Bay-based activities have been nominated for the Rushcliffe Community Awards - Cheff, Musicworks (Heron Music Cafe) and The Good Weigh.

Consultation on the future of Broadmarsh - The Big Conversation - Nottingham City Council have launched this public consultation on the future of the Broadmarsh development - worth having a go; we do have to walk through it after all.  I want an open public space on top, full of bars and restaurants and with views of the Lacemarket, the City and of course Lady Bay.  https://www.nottinghamcity.gov.uk/engage-nottingham-hub/open-consultations/broadmarsh-the-big-conversation/.

Remembrance Sunday and Armistice Day - Although there are some very controlled Remembrance Sunday (8th November) and Armistice Day (11th November) commemoration events going on, there aren't any large gatherings. An idea is for people to decorate their windows with poppies. As well as making your own. The Royal British Legion have downloads ready coloured or to colour in for a donation: https://www.poppyshop.org.uk/products/download-a-remembrance-poppy

Woops, make that National Lockdown.  Will try to list major changes here and see Local Businesses listing (our old Covid-19 page) for more details.  This will take some time to pull together, so bear with us.

  • Closing for Lockdown - Bread and Butterflies, Poppy & Pint & Lady Bay pubs, Adjust Massage, Hairdressers
  • Still open - everything else in Lady Bay
  • Open but with altered arrangements (further afield) - Quite a few shops still open, eg the various showrooms and Fireplace Centre on Radcliffe Road, albeit some are on an appointment-only basis.  Stevo's and Palmers are still fully open.
  • Takeaway/Delivery - Most restaurants and shops still operating at least on a takeaway/delivery basis - see links under local services.


Before the lockdown and possibly after it's over -   Here are some links to how being in tier 3 impacts various businesses.  Now out of date but left here in case we end up back in tier 3 in December:-
