Road Closures

Road Closure


Wiltshire Council 

Section 14(1) of the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984 

Temporary Closure of: Woods Hill (Part), Limpley Stoke (Ref: TTRO 6086) 

Notice is hereby given that the Wiltshire Council has made an Order to close temporarily to all traffic: 

Woods Hill (Part), Limpley Stoke; from property known as 9 Woods Hill for approximately 100 metres in a southerly direction. 

To enable: Wessex Water to carry out a supply separation. 

Alternative route: via Woods Hill (unaffected length) and vice versa 

The closure and diversion route will be clearly indicated by traffic signs. 

This Order will come into operation on 14 August 2019 and the closure will be required for one day. It is anticipated that the works will take the stated duration to complete depending upon weather conditions. Access will be maintained for residents and businesses where possible, although delays are likely due to the nature of the works. The Order will have a maximum duration of 18 months. 

For further information please contact Brian Freegard (Wessex Water) on 03456004600.

Emergency First Aid Course


The Bradford on Avon Community Emergency Volunteers (CEVs) -supported by the Town Council and the Area Board- are organising a programme of First Aid Courses over the coming year. The next one -‘Emergency First Aid at work For Working near Water’-will take place at Frome Rd Youth and Community Centre on Saturday 13th July, 9am to 5pm. 

Members and staff of the Town Council, local schools, parish councils, and members of local voluntary/sports organisations are invited to participate free of charge. 

Instruction will be from British Red Cross and everyone gains a recognised First Aid qualification on successful completion.  

Topics covered will include;-

· Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) 

· Use of Automatic External Defibrillator (AED, -green box automatic defibrillators)

· Shock 

· Seizures

· Bleeding 

· Choking 

· Burns

The course is limited to 15 participants and so a waiting list will operate as we plan to run further courses later in the year if we find sufficient demand. 

Places may also be offered to members of the public at nominal cost, though we would not plan to charge students, seniors or anyone in receipt of benefits.

Clean Air Day

20th June 2019

Did you know that motor vehicles create more toxic air in our towns and cities than any other single human activity? And that Bath has particularly high levels of nitrogen dioxide (NO2) which can make asthma and other heart and lung problems much worse?
On Clean Air Day, please help us raise awareness of the effects of pollution and do something fun in your community – as a group, individual or business –  that will encourage others to give their vehicles a day off (and change travel habits for good). 

Activities you can do…
The idea is that we do something different on Clean Air Day that helps to reduce air pollution. It can be as simple as pledging to walk, cycle or take the park & ride (when you normally drive) - and sharing your pledge photo with friends and family online. If you’ve more time, you could plan a small event. 

Businesses and organisations can also pledge to encourage sustainable travel within their organisation. This could be anything from organising car shares, investigating last-mile cargo bike deliveries, to looking longer term at investing in cleaner fleet vehicles. 

You’ll find step-by-step guides to events and pledging at along with posters, leaflets and a quiz, and plenty of text and graphics for you to promote clean air day on social media. 

Please share what you do online using @bathnes  #cleanair4bathnes  @cleanairdayUK  #CleanAirDay.

The Galleries

First, the Bad News
We are sad to report that, with immediate effect, there will be no more dry cleaning or laundry servicesavailable at Galleries.  Malmesbury Dry Cleaning, who have offered a service to us since the shop first opened, are no longer able to continue twice weekly collections and deliveries.  We thank them and will miss their friendly service to our community.

Now, the Good News.............

Every cloud has a silver lining. Our freezer had an unfortunate  breakdown recently.  But, as it was nearly ten years old and had  done us very well, the GMG made the decision to replace it with a  new and larger four door model.  

 The new freezer will enable us to offer a wider range of frozen  goods, including frozen meat from Hartley Farm

Art on Our Walls
"The subject matter of my paintings is influenced by the ever changing and evolving landscape which provides me with a library of colour, movement and atmosphere." says local artist Annabel Menheneott whose art we welcome back on our walls.  A range of gift cards accompanies her paintings.
