There is now a new procedure for Reporting  Highways Issues. The system has been changed and improved in the following ways: 	The old Clarence number has been replaced by 0300 456 0105.This feeds direct into the Customer Care Centre and avoids problems that used to arise for mobile phone callers. 	Reports may now be made online to www.wiltshire.gov.uk/mywilts, and an app is available to smart phone and pad users who can download an App from the online reporting website.  	It is now possible to track progress in real time on resolving road maintenance issues that have been reported online. 	Issues that can be reported include council signs, car parks, fly-tipping, potholes, playgrounds, street lighting, roads and drains and manholes, traffic lights, dead animals on a public road, trees and many others.

Road Notices and Updates Non to report. After a long time we have at last a play area on the “Rec”. The mega ship is looking good and is now ready for use by the children.  This has been achieved by a lot of hard work by Terry Greenwood and supported by the council and we all hope that it will see many happy years of use and regarded as an asset to the resources of the parish. 		  At last it has arrived

Good News Everleigh Household Recycling Centre has a reprieve. It appears that Wiltshire Council have had a rethink and will not be closing the center in the near future. The reaction of comumities it serves and all the parish councils working together have had an impact. We will have to be vigilant in case there is a another attempt to close it in the future.
