Covid-19 (Coronavirus)

The Parish Council will play a role in providing clear and updated information to raise awareness of prevention measures like handwashing and will co-ordinate with community groups to provide help and support to our more vulnerable residents.

The coronavirus situation is fast-moving and there is an increasing amount of misinformation online – up to date information and the latest advice is available from Public Health England.

The Parish Council will continue to operate in accordance with current legislation and government guidance and we need to ensure that we mitigate any risks to the Council – we do however anticipate some disruption to future meetings – details will be posted on the website and notice boards.

Wiltshire Council have created a COVID-19 Community Pack to support communities during the ongoing COVID-19 situation.

The pack contains a list of key contacts, resources and information in one place.

Household Survey – Public Open Spaces

Wiltshire Council are undertaking a collaborative piece of work that we are seeking assistance with. Approximately 4 years ago, Wiltshire Council collected data related to open space provision in your area and your input was invaluable. However, it is really important that the records the Council has are brought up to date so that they can accurately inform two significant emerging strategies.

The data collected will be used to understand the current provision of existing open space within the county and will form part of the evidence base necessary to underpin a new Green infrastructure Strategy and an Open Space Strategy.

You can have your say by returning the filled out survey via email to SpatialPlanning.Policy@wiltshire.gov.uk before 31st of March 2020, or by sending a hard copy to your Parish Clerk before Friday 27th March 2020.

If you wish to read around the subject Natural England’s Green Infrastructure’s Guidance page has a downloadable PDF which describes Green Infrastructure. If you wish to see further information regarding Wiltshire Council’s current policies in the Wiltshire Core Strategy please go to our Planning Policy Core Strategy webpage. 

We hope you understand the important role that open space and green infrastructure plays in the community and the benefits thereof of completing and returning the survey.

If you have any questions, please contact your Parish Clerk or by using the contact details below.

Regards,

Look after yourself this winter – advice from the NHS

As the dark nights draw in across Wiltshire and winter really starts to bite, it’s worth thinking about how we can all make sure we’re looking after ourselves and staying well over the cold winter months.

The NHS recently launched its annual winter campaign – Help Us Help You– which is here to help make it easier to understand the things you can do.

We all know hospitals and surgeries can be especially busy during the winter months and it can often be tricky to know the best place to go for help, so here’s some handy tips to see you though until spring:

  1. It’s not too late to get your flu jab

The free flu vaccination is offered to those who are at increased risk from the effects of flu, including people aged 65 and over, pregnant women, those with underlying health conditions and children aged 2-10. If you’ve not had one yet, it’s not too late.

  • Call 111 or visit 111.nhs.uk online

If you’re unsure where to go and think you need urgent medical attention, but it’s not life-threatening, contacting NHS 111 can help you make sure you reach the most suitable NHS service for your needs.

  • Ask a pharmacist for advice before minor ailments or winter illnesses get worse

Community pharmacists are qualified healthcare professional who can offer clinical advice and over the counter medicines to safely manage things like coughs, colds and sore throats.

It’s quick and convenient to see a pharmacist– you don’t need to book an appointment and can often be seen in a private consultation room.

  • See your GP in the evening or weekend if you can’t see them during the day

If you need to see a GP but find it hard to find the time during routine hours, appointments with a GP, nurse or other healthcare professionals are often available in the evenings and at weekends through many local practices or other local NHS services.
