From Richard and Jasmine Charles-Jones:
We are planning some renovation work to our beloved bungalow in the new year and have decided that due to a new arrival on the way in mid February, we should move out and the let the builders have a free run… babies and building sites do not always make the best of friends!
We are therefore looking for some temporary accommodation from roughly late January through to July, in the village, or somewhere towards Bath if not.
House, annex, anything we could rent for all ‘3’ of us, as we adjust to sleepless nights and manage the project at arms length!
If anyone has any possibilities, then we would love to hear from you.

From Ian Millard:
We are having an extension built at our house in the upper village which has entailed taking down a lot of the existing side wall. We have not been able to reuse most of this stone in the new extension and so it is spare and likely to get taken away for landfill.
It is all Bath stone and includes a number of quoins and other large stones plus a couple of walls of dressed and ordinary rougher stone. If anyone in the village is looking for stone for an extension or outbuilding we are happy for you to have it, but there are a few tonnes so you will need to collect it!
Please call me on 07748335523.
Thanks to George Lodge for this item:
There are a couple of interesting pieces in the most recent Wiltshire Parish Council newsletter.
The first is broadband workshops aimed at hobbyists and sole traders who would like to take their hobby or small business to the next level by learning how to maximise their presence on the internet.
The second is for anyone who fancies a turn being a stone age man or woman at Stonehenge!
Here’s the link to the PDF format newsletter published on 29th September.
From Vicky Brown:
I live in the lower village and go to St Laurence School. I am currently in year 12 and am part of a challenge group that is travelling to Romania in the summer with a charity called People Against Poverty. We are travelling there in order to build a farm complex in a poor region of the country. As part of this challenge group we are asked to raise money for the project and next week will be undertaking a 53 mile sponsored cycle.
If you would like to donate or sponsor me, please contact me either by email or at my home address:
Vicky Brown, 26 Lower South Wraxall
Thank you very much.
