Coronavirus (COVID-19) – Parish Support Information
Under the present circumstances and with the restrictions recently imposed by the Government, it is vitally important that as a community we all stick together and support each other. To provide as much information as we can we have now set up a dedicated page for information on the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic on the website.
This page can be accessed by clicking on the “Coronavirus (COVID-19)” tab in the menu bar at the top of this page. We will use this page to communicate new information as it becomes available – page last updated on 24th April 2020
Information and updates from external organisations together with links to their sites will also be published on this page.
The Parish Council hope that you are well and managing to cope in this stressful situation, and that you find the information that we are providing useful.
Our parish is in the County of Gloucestershire. It lies three miles to the west of the City of Gloucester and is separated from it by the River Severn. To the north Highnam is bounded by the small River Leadon and to the west by Highnam Woods RSPB nature reserve.
The A40 trunk road crosses the parish but the main residential area lies to the north of the B4215 which joins the A40 at Highnam. The population of the parish is approximately two thousand, most of whom live in the housing development of the 1930s and 1980s which are enclosed within a spine road separating the built up areas from the farmland and hills.
If you are are visiting Highnam, Holy Innocents Church, built on the Highnam Court Estate in the 1850s by the Gambier Parry family, is in a beautiful location. Both the Church and the Court gardens are open to the public at various times including for events during the summer months.
