The tree (believed to be american red oak) on Ham Green has died on one side. Having taken advice, the Parish Council have applied to Wiltshire Council for, and been given, consent to remove the tree. The work will be undertaken on 24 November.
The Parish Council are currently in the process of raising funds to re-site the current defibrillator to make it more accessible. Generous donations have already been pledged and with a little more help we will be able to site another one in the village. If you would like to contribute there are collecting boxes in The Old Ham Tree and and the Holt Superstore.
The Complaints procedure has now been published on this website – see sidebar tab
