Should you see posters that are out of date, please do not hesitate to remove them, along with any of the annoying little paper corners that are left too!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

Dear all 

The Parish Council have submitted the Acreshort Lane Project to Aviva's Community Funding campaign. If we are successful, then we could receive up to £10,000 which can be put towards the development of the area. 

The Parish Council currently have £8,000 set aside for the scheme, but in order to develop the site fully for the benefit of the whole community, we need nearer to £30,000; play and fitness equipment and it's installation doesn't come cheap. 

The Aviva Community Fund gives us the opportunity to get the community involved in the voting process and if we get enough votes, hopefully we stand a chance of receiving some money. 

Please can you take the time to register using the link below; you will then be given 10 votes which you can use across any of the schemes in the campaign, or hopefully (!) use ALL 10 VOTES on the Steeple Ashton project. 

Please use the link below to vote and please forward this email onto any friends and family so they can cast their votes or even register more than one email address.

 

https://community-fund.aviva.co.uk/voting/project/view/16-2241

 

THE MORE VOTES WE GET, THE MORE CHANCE WE HAVE OF SECURING FUNDING!

Look out for more information relating to the project in the Parish Magazine over the forthcoming months.  

Many thanks

Steeple Ashton Parish Council
