|Surviving Winter Fund|
Wiltshire residents can claim up to £250 (whilst funds last!) to help with their heating and fuel bills over the cold period. This time round we are paying either for top up vouchers for their prepayment meters or credit into their energy account if they pay by direct debit. We can also help with solid fuels also such as LPG gas bottles, wood or coal.
To be eligible, the client will need be in receipt of a means tested benefit, of pension age, or of working age and receiving a disability benefit (or they/someone in the household has a health condition worsened by the cold). They also need to be struggling with their fuel bills and keeping their home warm.

Our Parish Plan outlined the need for the following action:
"The Parish Council will continue to secure representation from the four communities and will seek further ways to improve its association with them for example by rotating the venue of Parish meetings."
Future Parish Council meetings will be held at Old Sarum Community Centre, Hampton Park (Greentrees School) and Laverstock at River Bourne Community Farm on a rolling programmed basis.
Residents can address the council with any concerns for up to 3 minutes before the meeting proper starts.
