Badger burrowing causes Kingsdown road closure

If you’ve tried to drive from South Wraxall to Kingsdown or vice versa in the past few days, you’ll have noticed that the road’s closed. All the digging that’s going on is to repair damage by tunnelling badgers. At least one of the tunnels is wide enough for a person to climb into, according to a workman I spoke with this morning. Here’s a glimpse of the damage that caused the road to subside.


Of course, it’s easy enough to get through on a bicycle. And the road is remarkably quiet…

Parish Steward Scheme re-introduced

From Bella Walker:

Wiltshire Council has re-introduced a scheme where once a month a Parish Steward will visit South Wraxall to carryout a range of tasks related to Highway maintenance. He will work alone with hand tools and a small vehicle so there will be limits to what he can do but these tasks will nonetheless be welcome. The following is a list of jobs the Steward will be able to do, although some are less relevant at this time of year.

  • Hand clearing and cutting of growth from drainage grips and drain gully covers;
  • Hand clearing of blocked drainage gullies, culverts, pipes and pits;
  • Clearing storm debris from the roads and footways;
  • Clearing collision debris, clinical waste etc;
  • Cleaning, re-installation and straightening of small road signs, street nameplates and bollards;
  • Installation of small road signs, verge marker posts and supplied street name plates;
  • Removal of limited graffiti from road signs, bollards and street nameplates;
  • Hand cutting of grass and vegetation in visibility areas;
  • Hand treatment of weeds in rural areas;
  • Removal of Ragwort and other noxious weeds;
  • Clearance of encroaching growth and soils from footways;
  • Repair of minor surface defects in roads and on footways.

If you know of any problems in the village you consider might benefit from the Steward’s attention, please contact me either by email or on 01225 863281 and I will compile a list that can be forwarded to the Highways Engineer.

Jazz performance at South Wraxall Club on 16th October

From Tim Bray:

Perry Gordon and His Rhythm Club will give a performance at South Wraxall Club on Sunday 16th October at 7pm. They are a four piece band, including trumpet, clarinet, banjo and double bass and perform vintage New Orleans Jazz and Blues.


They are based in Bordeaux, France and are doing a short tour of the UK so we are lucky enough to have been included in this tour.

Free trampoline?

From Tanya Russell:

We have an old 8ft trampoline that our son has out grown if anybody would like to make use of it.  It will need a new surround but it still has plenty of life and fun left in it, seems a shame to take it to the tip. We are in the Lower village, 33d if you would like to have a look at it or message me on
