Join the Great British Spring Clean – Sunday 4 March 2018 at 10.00am


Hi Manningford Residents

Prompted by Wiltshire Council, Manningford is now signed up to take part in The Great British Spring Clean ( litter pick-up and gate cleaning) on Sunday 4th March at 10.00am for which we hope to attract as much support as possible.

The plan is to meet at the Village Hall and after a short briefing we shall divide into teams to cover the area most efficiently.

The route is primarily organised along:

a) C52 from The Rectory at the junction of the A345 to the crossroads for Pewsey/Woodborough past the bridge.

b) Road from the triangle past the village hall up to the bridge.

However, with enough volunteers we would like to extend the route to include Primrose and Dragon Lane and also from the railway bridge leading down through Manningford Abbotts.
We can also include Church Lane and Wick Lane amongst others but this will be very dependent on numbers and time, so the more the merrier!

Unfortunately we are unable to organise a litter pickup along the A345 for safety reasons.

We expect that we would be back to the VH by around 11.30 where refreshments, tea coffee and cake, will be provided.

Posters will be put up around the village in order to let everyone know in good time - please speak to your neighbours about joining us.

We shall arrange bags, gloves and as many viz-vests that we can lay our hands on, so, please let us know if you can help on the day by responding here/posting a message.
Thank you!

Jackie CookHi, don't worry about doing Primrose Lane, I'm pretty certain there is no litter, and I walk up and down it often enough, I'll pick any up that does arrive. Not sure I can make 4th March

Iain Gutteridge shared Blue Kite Stained Glass's event to the group: The Manningfords.

I’ve got a late space available on this course, if anyone local fancies learning to make stained glass it’s £75 (£25 off) for the day.

Pig Racing

The Pig Race Night held in mid-October was a huge success and a lot of fun was had by everyone who attended.     It was an initiative by David Blanchard to raise funds for maintenance within St. Peter’s Church and a massive £1,000 was achieved – it was split £750 to St. Peter’s and £250 was donated to the village hall.    Many thanks to everyone who helped make the evening a success and a special thanks to Sue & Allan Gardner who organised all the food & the racing.
