Everleigh Recycling Centre i.e. “the tip”. Having just had the opening hours cut it now appears that the Wiltshire Council wish to close the whole site. It feels like death by a thousand cuts. Let us hope there will be a consultation process. If you feel it is important to the area that it stays open please let Wiltshire Council know before it is too late. In the meantime its new opening hours are 10am until 4pm and closed all day on Wednesday and Thursday.
After the many disappointments with delays in the construction of this project we can now cross the road in safety. It is the first step in taking back control of our village from traffic. We will be able to cross the A338 when we decide and not when there is no traffic. A big thank you for to all those who made it happen. We have a Puffin Crossing.
Minutes for the council meeting  held on the 3rd September can be found here.
Road Notices and Updates Currently none to report.
We have two new co-opted councillors, Mark and Alexandra Fordham. This now means we have a full council of eleven members.
