19-Aug-2020: As you may know, a diary is being written about the coronavirus plague in Alne and the parallels with the plague of 1604.

06-Aug-2020: Those of you who made masks for the Rotary Club appeal will be interested in the press release (click here) which tells the story of how 4,000 masks were made by local volunteers.

03-Aug-2020: Over the last few years, there have been numerous complaints about the dangers and congestion at the Village Hall corner particularly during school drop-off and pick-up hours. Your Parish Council has agreed with the school and NYCC Highways to help solve the problem with yellow lines on the corner and separate bus parking arrangements. A process is in train to agree the details and a public consultation is being organised by NYCC. It is hoped that all Alne residents will support these proposals as being in the best interests and safety of all concerned. It should be noted that the timescale of this process is likely to be protracted but that it is not within the control of Alne Parish Council.
