Last PC Meeting

 The last Parish Council meeting was held on 21st September.

The Parish Council and the Shalbourne Club are looking at buying additional items for the play area and also at providing an area for skateboarding. If you have any views on this, please let us know or come along to the next PC meeting where it will be discussed. We are also looking for someone who would be willing to lead on this, if you are interested please contact Bob Walker or Mike Lockhart, contact details on the back page.

Unfortunately, the Pewsey Transport Group have not met since May and will not meet until mid October so we have no idea on the progress, or lack of it, on three outstanding items: the 20 mph limit near the school; the speed signs in Oxenwood and the dangerous junctions with the A338. Clr. Wheeler, our Wiltshire Council councillor, has undertaken to take these up.

Wiltshire Council are making available 10,000 trees to be planted in 2018 to commemorate the 10,000 people from Wiltshire who died in WW1. The Council is working with the Shalbourne Club to see if some could be planted in Shalbourne, perhaps along the side of the sports field.

The next Parish Council meeting will be on Thursday 23rd November. This is the meeting where the budget and precept for 2017/18 are discussed. If you know of a project likely to need funds in that timescale, please let one of the Parish Council know. If the project is not in the budget, we cannot give it money!!

A reminder that the Parish Council’s financial statements for last year (unaudited) are available for inspection on the Shalbourne website.
