Dear Curzon Park Residents
I hope this finds you well. As I am sure you are all aware, the incidence of Corona Virus (COVID-19) continues rise globally, nationally and locally with cases now reported in Chester.
Below I have listed links to government and NHS websites detailing important information for what you can do to best look after yourself and family.
NHS Guidance: https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/
BBC – Easy Steps to stay safe: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-51711227
BBC – Effective hand washing video: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/av/health-51637561/coronavirus-watch-how-germs-spread
GOV UK (including information on self isolation, travel and business owners): https://www.gov.uk/government/topical-events/coronavirus-covid-19-uk-government-response
GOV UK map of cases: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/covid-19-track-coronavirus-cases
Word Health Organisation – How to wash your hands: https://www.who.int/gpsc/clean_hands_protection/en/
Finally, some of you may be aware Health Secretary Matt Hancock spoke on The Andrew Marr show of every Briton aged 70 or over potentially being told to stay at home for an extended period to protect themselves from coronavirus (https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-51895873).
With all the above considered this could significantly impact Curzon Park residents. As a Residents Association we take this issue very seriously and want to support all our residents as best we can during this difficult period (currently, of unknown duration).
We are already looking in to potential methods on how we can safely support vulnerable residents and will look to action this once clearer guidance/ information is available.
We will be in touch with further information in due course.
Last December we had another enjoyable Carols on the Green. We sang plenty of carols, enjoyed the delicious mulled wine, mince pies and hot chocolate and met up with our friends and neighbours.
The weather was crisp and dry and everyone was in good voice. Thanks again to everyone involved in making the event happen.
Here is a selection of photographs from the evening. We look forward to seeing everyone in December 2020.

As you may know Chester Race Course Company have recently launched a public consultation programme on their Masterplan.
You can see the details on the following website:
This photograph was taken outside 10 Earlsway in the 1920’s. Ice cream was obviously as popular a treat then as now, but sold from a bicycle cart rather than from a chiming transit van. Two of the boys are wearing their school caps (which school?), and perhaps the old fashioned bicycle in the background may have belonged to one of them.
Curzon Park, then and now. (Click here )….
Do you have any old photographs of your house or area from a few years ago? If you have please email Adrian or Dave: firstname.lastname@example.org.
We will collect the picture, scan it, and return it to you undamaged. We will then take a photo to match the location, and put everything side by side on our CPRA web pages. We hope you can help. Click here….
Trams in Chester
The link above will take you to the Chester Chronicle site, where there is a fascinating 5 minute ‘video’ of Chester in the 1930’s, showing trams in the city centre, and also glimpses of the River Dee.
This 1930’s photo of a tram on Chester Street, Saltney is one of several images on the Chronicle website. It is possible that the gentleman with the bicycle is on his way to Morgan’s Cycle shop, which is still in existence, slightly higher up Chester Street
