“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 (, 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 or call 01225783335.”
