PARKING ON PAVEMENTS AND VERGES

May we appeal to drivers to consider pedestrians and buggy users when parking on the roadside.  The incidence of vehicles obstructing pavements is happening more and more often in the Village. Whilst it is appreciated that on road parking is nearly at saturation point and that the roads are narrow in places, it is inconsiderate and unacceptable  to park in such a way that pedestrians and buggy users are forced into the road.

Please think before parking on the pavement!

Work starts on Dawes Pond

Work has started today on Dawes Pond.  By early next week the pond will be re-modeled to include a shallow safety area around the side and a buried neoprene lining .  There will also be an electric pump to top up the water from the brook.  The work is being paid for from the Parish Council village amenity fund and a generous donation from Nick and Alix Kirkham of Glove Factory Studios.

Don’t Be Fooled by Fake Wiltshire Council Calls

Reports are being received of a man calling local residents  claiming to be from Wiltshire /Council and conducting a survey about an accident the person they have ‘phoned has had.  Treat such calls with suspicion.
