Afternoon Tea at St James’s 

From Jean Atkin;

The weather could not have been more different from the day of our first tea in May. It was cold and wet on Thursday, but our loyal customers turned out to support us yet again.

We were given many delicious cakes and had a good number of willing helpers. People were still drinking tea and eating cake after 5 o’clock. It was a sociable afternoon of prolonged chat between friends and neighbours.

Thank you to our helpers and to all who came and donated so generously. The result was a total of £211 for the upkeep of St James’s Church.

Road Closure – C169 between Ganbrook & South Wraxall

From Wiltshire Council:

Wiltshire Council will be closing the road between the 17th June until the 5th July 2019 to undertake highway verge repairs and other associated highway maintenance activities in the area.

The road closures are required due to the narrow nature of the roads in this area and the large machinery required to undertake the works. Work will take place between 8am and 5pm Monday to Friday. Outside of this time the road will be open and accessible.

All closures and diversions will be clearly signed during the works. If we could please ask that you stick to diversion routes as much as possible during the works to allow us to complete the works quickly.

The site team will accommodate access for residents of the road and businesses during the works, however please be aware that on occasions there may be some delays whilst machinery manoeuvres the road.

We will work hard to keep the physical road closure down to the minimum area possible during each working day.

If you would like any further information please do not hesitate to contact me on 07826 943272 or by email jack.francis@wiltshire.gov.uk.
