  • Tesco Bags of Help - ACRESHORT PARK NEEDS YOU!

    GREAT NEWS!     Thanks to Liz Halliwell (previous Parish Councillor), we have been successful in applying for Tesco's 'Bags of Help' scheme to raise money for play equipment in Acreshort Park. To make it work, we need YOU to shop in Tesco and collect the tokens at the checkout - you then pop them in the relevant plastic box on the way out.  Tesco says: To vote, you will need to make a purchase within store of any value. You will receive one token per transaction and it's ...

  • Old posters....

    Should you see posters that are out of date, please do not hesitate to remove them, along with any of the annoying little paper corners that are left too! Please leave alone any posters that are still in date and legible. If you are unsure, then please contact us on Facebook or via the Clerk's email address or telephone and we will send a Parish Councillor to have a look. The more residents that join in, the tidier things will be - the Parish Council are but few! ...

Voting is Open - Aviva Funding for Acreshort Park!


You are allowed up to 10 votes and can use them all on one project - please share with family and friends and see if we can get into the final!


We want to provide an outdoor community space in the village that is all inclusive, including activities for older children, adults and families.

We are a small group of motivated volunteers driven to see this project succeed. We have been fundraising for a while but need the injection of these extra Aviva funds to finally realise some key elements of our plan. 

We have already raised the funds to create a picnic area, provided fencing and car parking, and developed a planting and maintenance schedule that has seen the field turn into a usable area. 

The next phase of the plan is to provide a range of play and fitness equipment and tidy up the entrance - the equipment alone will cost us upwards of £40,000. 

We plan to hold a summer celebration in 2018 to officially open the park and new equipment, as well as providing a springboard to start our future plans - including nature trails, BBQ area, community building, group fitness events and anything else our lovely villagers feel the need for, in a beautiful outdoor setting that is to become the focus for the health & wellbeing of the village. 

Please help us realise the next phase of our plans!

A cloudy but warm Saturday 24th June 2017 saw many villagers attend the annual Church Fete at The Lodge. Visitors were provided with a coconut shy, bouncy castle, tombolas, raffles, refreshments, book stall, cake stall (sold out almost immediately!) refreshments and ice cream cones. They were also entertained by a local band, who got everybody's feet tapping :)

Over 700 vistors attended the Open Gardens event on Sunday 4th June 2017, raising over £5000. In spite of the soggy weather, each of the 15 gardens looked absolutely glorious - a real testament to the hard work put in over the last few months.

A message from our Police and Crime Commisioner...

I have today begun a public consultation on the cost of policing in 2015-16.  I am considering an increase of £3.06 per year, or 6p per week, for the average home (Band D property).  The increase is to help reduce the impact of significant central government grant reductions on policing and crime services in Wiltshire and Swindon.
The consultation is now open and runs until Wednesday 4th February 2015.  I have approached every Area Board and Locality that are meeting during this period and asked for the opportunity to make a presentation about my proposal.  A copy of this presentation is available on my website ( along with further information.
I would encourage you to give your feedback on my proposal and to promote this consultation amongst your community.  Feedback can be given through my website or by following this link:
Yours sincerely
