To all 2014 events To all 2014 events Volunteering For Home-Start Kennet We all lead such busy lives! Yet Home-Start Kennet is asking if anyone, experienced from raising their own children, can find a couple of hours a week to visit and support local families who are struggling. Your two to three hours could make the difference between just about coping and discovering the joys of parenting.   Our volunteers come from all parts of the community, are men and women, and their ages range from 20s to 70s.  Some are winding down after busy lives at work or with their own families.  Others are gearing up and hope to use their experience to start a new career.  We support families across the former area of Kennet – Marlborough, Devizes, Pewsey, Tidworth and the rural areas and villages in between.  We have a special commitment to the Tidworth community, both civilian and military, and welcome volunteers from all backgrounds to work in this growing and developing area.  You'll get training, and professional support.  For those who wish, there is the opportunity of national accreditation. The next preparation course begins on September 30th for 8 consecutive Tuesdays. For more information please visit our website: or phone 01672 569457.

Notice Board The next Parish Council Meeting will be held on  11th September at 7:30pm at Collingbourne School. The Wiltshire Council 2014 Annual Report and the The Council’s Financial Plan 2014-15 are now available. Links to these documents are below.     The annual Parish Accounts for 2013/14 can be found here - On 4th August Collingbourne Ducis remembered those of the parish who were killed and suffered in World War 1. A service was conducted by our vicar, the Rev'd Jo Reid at the war memorial. The “Remembrance Orchard” was then dedicated on the recreation ground. There was a good response from the village and all gathered for tea and cakes in the village hall afterwards. A consultation process has started regarding how the village should develop in the future. A map and letter from Wiltshire has been posted on the notice board as well as at this website.  This particularly affects Cadley Road. Rather than the usual expansion of development this proposal contracts potential development areas. I urge all to study this and give your feedback as in future it will be very difficult to get planning approval for development within the areas affected. The closing date is Monday 22 September 2014. This consultation will affect the village in years to come. Please take part and make your views known.
