Voting is Open - Aviva Funding for Acreshort Park!

PLEASE VOTE FOR US!

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!

Should you see posters that are out of date, please do not hesitate to remove them, along with any of the annoying little paper corners that are left too!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!

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.

Steeple Ashton Parish Council Election – 4 May 2017

A message from the Candidates

Dear Resident,

The current term of your Parish Council ends in May this year and because there are thirteen candidates and only nine seats, an election is required. The election will be held on Thursday 4 May 2017, alongside Wiltshire Council Unitary Elections. All candidates have worked together with an independent co-ordinator to produce this short information sheet so that you are aware of who is standing and their background. The aim is try to avoid overloading you with separate information sheets. However, this does not prevent any of the candidates supplying you with more information, should they wish to do so. The candidates are listed in alphabetical order and you will have the opportunity to vote for up to NINE candidates on the ballot paper. We hope that you will find this information useful. Please feel free to contact any candidate individually should you need more information from them.
