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

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!
A resident has expressed concern about the speed at which traffic travels through The Midlands. Please can we appeal to drivers to exercise care, especially on the two sharp bends at either end of the road where numerous ‘near misses’ have been witnessed.
Tenders are being invited for caretaking and grass cutting in Holt. Information may be found here.
