Thanks to the church helpers!

From Jean Atkin:

Many, many thanks to the brilliant team who came along to St James’s on Thursday morning to give it a thorough ‘spring clean’. All was dusted, brushed, vacuumed, mopped and polished. A great result!

Dry car storage

Does anyone have spare storage space for a classic car? Steve Randall has been renovating a TR6 which shortly needs to over-winter in a dry space (we have no garage!). Money or barter (chimney sweeping/beer/chutneys…!) Any help much appreciated.

High speed broadband update

I spoke with Wiltshire Council again yesterday and work is still in progress to bring ‘superfast’ broadband to the village. Fibre optic cable is currently being installed from Bradford-on-Avon to the new cabinet in the Lower Village. The project is scheduled for completion in 2014 but there is no firm commitment from the Council that this goal will be achieved. I expect to receive a further update after the Council’s review meeting with BT Openzone on December 17th.

Remember, you won’t have to order the improved service from BT, most of the leading internet service providers will probably be able to deliver the higher speed connection but it is likely to cost more than the current one in most instances.

South Wraxall villagers’ dog walk

Tex Giles would like to invite four legged friends to join him on a Winter Wander through the villages towards Cumberwell Park.

Please meet in front of the church on:

Sunday 23rd November @ 11am

This is an easy/moderate walk following quiet roads and paths but with one small steep incline. The walk is an “all weather” affair, within reason!

For details call: Claire Giles 309066

Hope to see you there!

Wood for bonfire

We have a pile of sawn up fence panels and posts that would be good for a bonfire. With Nov. 5th. approaching we imagine they can be ‘re-homed’ before the hedgehog moves in.
