A Unique Concert for Wiltshire
03 January 2024

A Unique Concert for Wiltshire will be held at the historic Salisbury Cathedral on Thursday 8 February 2024 to raise vital funds for key Wiltshire charities.

The event will see award-winning concert pianist Rupert Egerton-Smith as special guest artist, in performance with The Band of The Grenadier Guards and The Band and Bugles of The Rifles.

The Band of The Grenadier Guards represent the most senior infantry regiment of the British Army, while the Band and Bugles of The Rifles represent the largest sole rifle regiment in the British Army.

This event not only marks one of the rare occasions that the two Bands will perform together in a concert, but it is also Egerton-Smith’s debut performance alongside them, just prior to the start of his East Coast recital tour of the United States of America.

The concert itself will take the audience on an exciting and unique musical journey; celebrating the rich histories of the two regiments, as well as paying homage to the local Wiltshire area.

All profits from this wonderful evening will go towards supporting the work of The Wiltshire Bobby Van Trust, Wiltshire Air Ambulance and Youth Action Wiltshire, along with the military charities, all of whom are honoured to share a close association with Her Majesty The Queen.

If your passionate about making a difference become a Wiltshire Bobby Van Stay Safe On-line Volunteer.
09 October 2023

We are committed to ensuring our volunteers feel valued and recognised for everything they do.

· This is a role suited to someone who is reliable, has time to commit to about one day a week and wants to make a real difference, to not only the safety and security of vulnerable people, but also the feeling of security when using the internet. Online exploitation and fraud are the fastest growing area of crime, and the elderly are particularly a target.

· Volunteers will visit and work with individuals in their own homes assessing how they use their internet and smart technology; then provide advice and guidance to make them less likely to become a victim of crime and to feel safer using the internet. Volunteers can also give group talks where the volunteer will provide an input with the same goals, but to community groups and organisations. We will give up to date information and advice on computer & internet security.

· The successful applicant will receive an Induction which will include - an overview of WBVT to include administrative procedures, DBS Check, the loan of IT equipment if required & reimbursement for travel expenses plus accompanying an existing volunteer to a 1 to 1 home visit and a group talk. You will need to have access to a car or the means to be able to travel to different locations to carry out referrals.

Vacancy for a Parish Councillor
06 October 2023

Vacancy for a Parish Councillor


As you may be aware, Tockenham Parish Council currently has a vacancy for a Councillor. Is this a role that could be of interest to you? It is not a particularly onerous role - you need to attend bi-monthly meetings (there can be the occasional extra-ordinary meeting too) and ideally you should be prepared to attend meetings aimed at all parishes within our Area Board from time to time. We would also like you to take on a "responsibility" within the council as part of your task - as we are very much an active council. No previous experience is necessary, as training will be available, but you obviously need to have a strong sense of community spirit - and act always in the best interest of our Parish. You must also be prepared to take difficult decisions on occasion!
If you would like to be considered for this position, in the first instance, please contact Diana Kirby at dkirby@tockenhamparishcouncil.gov.uk or call on 07765 644704. Applications by Saturday 21st October please.

Wiltshire Bobby Van Trust
31 August 2023

Since 1998, the Wiltshire Bobby Van Trust (WBVT) has worked in partnership with Wiltshire Police to provide a home security service for elderly and vulnerable people throughout Wiltshire. The charity funds the operation of three Bobby Vans that provide mobile workshops for Bobby Operators.

Operators are skilled carpenter/lock fitters. The operators are also trained in crime reduction and Fire Risk Assessment and provide reassurance to clients.

Bobby Vans are directed to their tasks by coordinators working from an operations room, who receive referrals, decide on work priorities and dispatch the vans using sophisticated communications equipment. On arrival the operators conduct a security audit with the permission of the client, fit the necessary security equipment to ensure the home is safe; in addition, they carry out a Fire Risk Assessment and fit smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors when this is appropriate. Finally, all aspects of home, personal and fire safety are discussed, and practical measures provided. The service and equipment are provided free of charge. This vital work is funded by the WBVT.

The mission of the WBVT is to help elderly or vulnerable people who have been victims of, or are at risk of, house crime, hate crime, domestic abuse, or fire.

On 2nd May 2017, WBVT, working in partnership with Wiltshire Police, launched a bespoke Online Safety Initiative – Stay Safe Online. The Free service is available to people who are over 60 or 18+ with a registered disability. Trained Stay Safe Online Volunteers provide improved digital security awareness, scam prevention advice, support and reassurance; basic practical skills for checking and understanding digital privacy settings; and signpost people to future sources of advice and resources. The service offers one-to-one home visits and community group talks and is managed by a dedicated Stay Safe Online Coordinator

Announcement from Wiltshire Council: Asylum Seekers
20 January 2023

The Wiltshire Hotel.


We have a number of single adult males staying at the Home Office contingency spot booking hotel, The Wiltshire Hotel, in Royal Wootton Bassett. This has been arranged by the Home Office, and Wiltshire Council is not required to provide support. This is a hotel to accommodate asylum seekers for a short period of time from a few days up to a maximum of 90 days. The asylum seekers are from a number of countries. A spot booking hotel is when placements are expected to be short term before individuals are moved to dispersal accommodation anywhere in the country. The Government has determined that every local authority area must take a proportion of asylum seekers. ClearSprings Ready Homes is the contracted provider for the Home Office who procure the dispersal accommodation.

“We are working with our partners to meet any statutory requirements associated with this and are also liaising with the Home Office. The hotel is providing accommodation with security and welfare staff on hand provided by ClearSprings. The Prime Minister has committed to fully exploring alternative sites to hotels for asylum seekers and we will keep you updated, as circumstances change and develop.”

For those wanting to donate we will be looking to the community to help out with specific items and will update in due course.

We have a number of FAQs about the hotel on our website here - Asylum seekers contingency accommodation - Wiltshire Council

Road Carriageway Works - Trow Lane and Bowds Lane, RWB & Cricklade
24 October 2022

I write to inform you of carriageway repair works programmed on Trow Lane and Bowds Lane, RWB & Cricklade.

The site extents can be viewed on the attached drawing.

These works involve asphalt patch repairs, adjustment of ironwork, reinstatement of road markings and associated maintenance works.

The works will commence on Tuesday 8th of November 2022 and will be completed by Friday 11th of November 2022 between the hours of 07:00 and 19:00, however on occasions they may over run due to uncontrollable circumstances such as plant breakdowns, if weather conditions are unfavourable, or occasionally we discover the need for additional repairs once the work has started.

There will be advance information signs erected on site giving confirmed start dates.

Due to the nature of the works and the local environment, the works will be carried out within a temporary road closure, to ensure that adequate health & safety is maintained for the contractor & local residents.

Road Markings and Ironwork adjustments may need to be completed at a later date.

The main diversion route for all ‘through’ traffic whilst works are being undertaken within the road closure will be as per the attached road diversion drawing.

The Contractor will maintain pedestrian access for residents for the duration of the works; but depending upon what operation is being undertaken and where it’s being undertaken residents may find that when accessing or egressing from their property in their vehicle, they may experience a delay and have to wait for plant to be moved out of the carriageway. I have suggested to residents that when leaving their property, to allow extra time for any possible delays and when returning to their property, there will be traffic management operatives located at the extents of the works, to speak to them, explain where they live, and they will be able to assist.

There will be points during the material laying process where vehicular access will be restricted as residents won’t be able to drive over the newly laid material, as early trafficking could lead to premature failure, therefore I have recommended to residents that if works are being undertaken in the vicinity of their property to speak to the workforce in advance to ask if there will be any restrictions with regards to access.

Advanced signing will be erected and letter drops to all residents located within the site extents will commence week starting 24th of October 2022. Signing will be in place advising that local businesses will be open as usual.

I would like to take this opportunity to apologise for any inconvenience these works will cause but trust you will appreciate the necessity for these essential works to maintain Wiltshire's highway network.

Should you require any further information in advance of the works please refer to (https://one.network/?GB131307720 & https://one.network/?GB131307694). If you wish to discuss the works whilst they are in operation, please speak to a member of the workforce who will direct you to the appropriate person on site.

If you want to make a difference and give back to your community this could be the job for you.

Along with fully funded accredited training the role offers:

  • Annual salary increments post probation
  • Great career progression
