New National Restrictions from 5 November
Information on the new national restrictions, including what they mean for working from home and business closures, why they are being introduced and the financial support available, is available on the UK Government website:
Bingham to enter Tier 3 COVID-19 Restrictions from December 2nd
Rushcliffe and Nottinghamshire will enter Tier 3 for restrictions from Wednesday 2 December
The move is part of the Government’s Winter Plan to reduce the spread of the virus following the end of the four-week national lockdown.
Please see the attached image. Tier 3 means:
- No mixing of households indoors or outdoors apart from support bubbles. Maximum of six in some outdoor public places, for example parks and public gardens
- Hospitality will close except for sales by takeaway, drive-through or delivery
- Retail, entertainment and personal care businesses can all open
- Places of worship are open but cannot interact with anyone outside household or support bubble
- Avoid travelling out of the area, other than where necessary for work, education, youth services, medical attention or because of caring responsibilities
- No overnight stays outside of local area, unless necessary for work, education or similar reasons
- 15 guests for weddings, civil partnerships and wakes; 30 for funerals. Wedding receptions not permitted
- Exercise classes and organised adult sport can take place outdoors, but should avoid contact. Organised activities for elite athletes, under-18s and disabled people can continue
- Public buildings and community venues can only open for supervised activities. A further update to clarify this will be outlined as soon as possible
The new Tiers have been strengthened to reduce the infection rate as part of a strategy to save lives, protect health and care services, and keep our economy and schools open.

2020/21 Bingham Town Guide
Bingham was voted “the Best Place to bring up a Family” in October 2013. It is a vibrant Town with a population of approx. 9,000, a Market every Thursday and a Farmers Market on 3rd Saturday of the month held on the Market Place alongside The Buttercross. It is approx. 9 miles east of Nottingham, 9 miles south-west of Newark-on-Trent and west of Grantham situated where A46 (Old Fosse Way) intersects A52.
There are strong links with our Twin Town Wallenfels in Bavaria, Germany, and each year residents from each Town meet up be it in Wallenfels or Bingham. A new play area opened in 2009 and is called Wallenfels Park.
Bingham Linear Park
The Linear Park is owned by the Town Council and is supported by an enthusiastic group of volunteers, The Friends of Bingham Linear Park.
The Old Court House is where the Council Offices are located and where the Town Clerk is based. All of the council’s business and meetings are conducted here but in addition the building is also available to hire as a venue for meetings.
