Zoom – Temporary lifting of 40 minute limit on calls using ‘free’ accounts over the festive period

For those that might be meeting virtually over Christmas, you will now be able to chat and see each other for longer as Zoom has announced

COVID-19 has changed how we live, work, and celebrate in 2020, and like everything else this year, the holiday season does not look the same. As a token of appreciation to our users during an extraordinary time, we are removing the 40-minute limit on free Zoom accounts for all meetings globally for several upcoming special occasions”.

Here are the dates and times for unlimited meetings:

3pm Thursday, 17 December to 11am Saturday, 19 December.

3pm Wednesday, 23 December to 11am Saturday, 26 December.

3pm Wednesday, 30 December 11am on Saturday, 2 January.

You do not need to do anything to remove the limit — it will be automatically lifted during these designated times.”

Swings in Play Areas refurbished

The Town Council arranges fortnightly inspections of the skate park and the Park Lane and Springs play areas, carried out by Richmondshire District Council.

The swings in Park Lane and the Springs have been fitted with new seat bases and the shackles on the older children’s swings have been replaced with new parts.  Thank you to Simon Burren for carrying out this work.
