“Holt Parish Council would like to acknowledge and thank everyone for the outstanding efforts being given by villagers in the form of voluntary help. We feel proud to be part of such a wonderful community.
As a Parish Council, we have limited resources but would like to help where we can, so have set aside £1000 from reserves to support these voluntary actions, and will add to this if necessary.
We’ll continue to work on Parish Council business where possible, doing what we can from our computers during the lockdown period. Caretaking and grass cutting is continuing for the time being. Any relevant information we receive from Wiltshire Council will be shared to the Parish Council website (holtparishcouncil.gov.uk), on social media via Spotted in Holt and Help in Holt, and the village magazine.
If you have any questions or would like to speak to us about any concerns you have, please contact the Clerk, Neil Baker at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 01225783335.”
The Wiltshire Council roads contractor Atkins has issued a flyer with more, but different, information about the road resurfacing works and road closure 17-21 February. They plan to close the road from the Tollgate to BridgeTerrace. Access will be permitted for pedestrians and resident’s vehicles within the closed zone with some restrictions as explained in more detail on the flyer here.
The main road through the village from the Tollgate to Station Road will be closed as per the extract from the Traffic Order: This Order will come into operation on 17 February 2020 and the closure will be required between the hours of 07:00 and 19:00 until 21 February 2020. It is anticipated that the works will take the stated duration to complete depending upon weather conditions. Access will be
maintained for residents and businesses where possible, although delays are likely due to the nature of the works. A map showing diversion routes may be found here.
