Not sure how to prune your fruit tree properly? My Apple Juice will be visiting the village to offer a professional pruning service, why not call and book them to come and sort out your trees.

Charity seeks experts to help steer future of Kennet & Avon Canal

K&A imageCharity seeks experts to help steer future of Kennet & Avon Canal

People living in Wiltshire are being called on to play a leading role in the future development of the region’s historic Kennet & Avon Canal.

The Canal & River Trust is recruiting new members to its Kennet & Avon Waterways Partnership, a group made up of leading local figures who aim to increase support and investment in the Kennet & Avon and Bridgwater & Taunton Canals and opportunities for the waterways to benefit local people and businesses.

The Partnership is now on the look-out for new members to help realise their ambitious plans for the waterways. Eleven people currently sit on the Partnership, drawn from many different interests, including boating, canoeing and restoration.

Applications are welcomed from anybody with an interest in the waterways. The Partnership is particularly keen to hear from those with skills and experience around youth engagement, heritage and tourism.

Tamsin Phipps, chair of the Kennet & Avon Waterways Partnership, said: “The Kennet & Avon Canal is one of the most beautiful and popular canals anywhere in the country. It already plays a huge role in the communities in runs through, and it still has so much potential to offer more, from boosting local economies or helping people to lead more active, healthy lifestyles. Joining the Partnership is a fantastic opportunity to contribute to this work. We’re on the lookout for people with energy and ideas, who want to play a role in their community.”

The roles are voluntary with agreed expenses reimbursed, and will involve approximately two days a month. Appointments are for three years. For more information please contact

Connect2 Wiltshire Pewsey Vale bus consultation

Wiltshire Council is working with the Devizes and Pewsey Community Area Partnerships because Wiltshire Council has to make savings in running public transport, and partly to trial long standing suggestions for improvements over the next year.
The opportunity has been taken to improve the bus/rail connections to Pewsey Station from Devizes. All villages in the new catchment areas will continue to be served. The savings are unavoidable but the improvements should balance out the savings.

Wiltshire Council are keen to hear the views of interested parties that will benefit from these bus services. There is still time to adapt the services to meet real travel needs. This is your chance to say what you think of the changes.

The proposal, questionnaire and background document are available from the following link
Also I only received this today – a bit short notice I’m afraid…….

Have your say:

Drop in Session in Pewsey Tuesday 11th November from 2.30 pm to 8.00pm at Bouverie Hall Pewsey.
