From The Editors Already quite a few readers will be aware that our Post Office has now closed albeit temporarily, we trust. Unfortunately, Siva is selling his Best One business owing to his severe illness, which seems so unfair for someone who has done so much for Purton in the relatively short time he has been with us and who took over the Post Office when Sue Budd retired at the end of September 2013.

At the time of going to press, we understand that a buyer has been found for the business and that the whole shop will temporarily close for refurbishment and rebranding. More information can be found on page 5 where we understand that as much as 8 months’ notice was given to Post Office Limited. Early in February, Cllr Jacqui Lay contacted Post Office Limited who initially seemed unaware, responding that there was nothing on their consultation pages or closure lists and a response from the new owners is still awaited.

Volunteers are being sought in this edition. On page 5 The Parish Council is creating an Emergency Plan for Purton and are seeking like-minded people who would help. Then, on page 7, volunteers are wanted for the Clean for the Queen campaign, to tidy up the country for the Queen’s 90th birthday in April.

On page 31, the Purton Evening WI tell us that, according to the BBC News, “our men” are considering forming a group, at present to be known as “The Shed”, seemingly a sort of male retreat for - and similar to - the WI. Already the antennae of many male readers will be alerted, especially if the reference to “our men” means the loyal, loving partners of WI members.

As it happens, “The Shed” is also the latest addition to The Ladybird Books For Grown-Ups Series that has “been specifically planned to help grown-ups with the world about them.” On one page, the book says that a shed is the perfect place to store things that are not quite useful enough to be in your house, but almost useful enough not to be in your bin and some of the things in your shed may even turn into heirlooms for your children. Another, topical page for March shows Roland, who is spending Easter in his shed sorting his screws while his wife and children visit his mother. A response from the WI is expected next month!

Page 4 Parish Council News Purton Post Office and Best One Residents may be aware of the rumours around the village regarding the long term future of the village Post Office.

Both Ray Thomas, as Chair of the Parish Council and Cllr Jacqui Lay have spoken with the owner of the shop to find out what is happening.

Regretfully due to health concerns the owner has decided to sell the business and a buyer has been found for the shop. The sale is likely to complete at the end of February but dates are yet to be finalised so this could slip into March. The proposal will be to close the shop for a while whilst the shop is refurbished and rebranded.

No agreement has yet been made for the potential new owner to run the post office but we understand that discussions may be taking place between them and Post Office Limited. This is yet to be confirmed. The current shop owner tells us that he gave notice to the Post Office 8 months ago that he will be ending their contract and the date of 18 February was given as the date for an Audit to take place and for the service to end.

Cllr. Lay is in contact with Post Office Limited who tells her that they were unaware of the closure but they are investigating and will report back. Our understanding is that there should have been a 3-month consultation period and during this time the post office service should remain in the village. How this will be achieved is not known at this stage but we have asked James Gray, MP if he can look into this. Cllr Lay is also in contact with the proposed new owners trying to find out more.

Purton Parish Council have also actively tried to engage with both the Post Office Services and proposed new owners and they are still waiting for a response, and will be doing everything in their power to help retain this facility for the Village.

Meanwhile if we are unsuccessful in keeping the current post office open beyond 18 February and until there is a new provider, then there will be many people who may need support from the village and the community to access the post offices in Swindon, Royal Wootton Bassett and Cricklade.

We are sure Siva would like to thank the village for their support over the time he and his family have been in the village running the Best One and the Post Office and is as frustrated as we all are that we are in the position we are with not knowing what the future will be for the post office. Hopefully more information will be available soon on the long term future of the Post Office in Purton.

Cllr Jacqui Lay – Wiltshire Unitary Councillor Cllr Ray Thomas – Chair of Purton Parish Council Volunteers Required Purton Parish Council are in the process of creating an Emergency Plan for Purton.

At this stage we are seeking likeminded people who would wish to help in an emergency by either being a “first point” contact, (Cascade contact list) or could advise and help the vulnerable in Purton, or being a valuable resource such as a 4x4 driver, tractor driver, nurse, doctor, chain saw owner etc. Please contact our Page 5 offices with offers of help. More information on this plan will follow.

Land at Reids Piece In March 2015 Wiltshire Council disbanded the Youth Services provision of utilising the Youth Club at Reids Piece and the building was handed back to the Parish Council as owners. The Council are seeking consultation with local residents as to options for its reuse.

The options currently being discussed are:

a) to sell for essential housing redevelopment

b) to lease, if feasible, for alternative private use. The building is not in a useable state currently. There is a section on the home page of our website where you can click and choose two options or you can email or write to the clerk with your comments at clerk@purtonpc.eclipse.co.uk or post to the address below.

Consultation papers were hand delivered to local residents in the immediate vicinity in January and consultation ends March 2016.

Neighbourhood Plan – Statement Purton Parish Council has decided that the Parish will be designated as a Neighbourhood Plan Area so that it can consult with people in the Parish on its draft Neighbourhood Plan and finalise the Plan by the end of this year.

Until now Purton Parish has been part of a “Frontrunner” scheme initiated by Wiltshire Council in 2011 to create a Neighbourhood Plan for the Royal Wootton Bassett and Cricklade Community Area.

Some parishes within the community area declined to take part in the arrangement or withdrew from the arrangement at an early stage. The seven rural parishes which stayed in the arrangement adopted the title ‘NEW-V’ (North East Wiltshire Villages) and have worked during the last three years to prepare their individual plans so that they could be incorporated in the overall NEW-V Area Plan.

Those parishes are: Broad Town, Clyffe Pypard, Lydiard Millicent, Lydiard Tregoze, Lyneham and Bradenstoke, Purton and Tockenham.

Purton Parish has prepared a draft Neighbourhood Plan for the area of Purton Parish that complies with the Government’s statutory rules and is ready for consultation. Purton Parish needs to make progress so that its Plan can be put in place for the benefit of the Parish by the end of this year. Lydiard Tregoze Parish has decided that it does not want to create any proposals for its Parish and the area of that Parish must therefore be left blank in the NEW-V Area Neighbourhood Plan. The other five Parishes have not yet reached a stage of producing draft plans that comply with Government statutory rules and will take Page 6 some time to do so.

Purton Parish has therefore decided that it must move on and seek designation for its own Parish area so that its Parish Plan can be put in place by the end of 2016 for the benefit of the people in the Parish. The five Parishes that remain in the NEW-V arrangement can continue to prepare their draft plans at their own pace with the continuing support of Wiltshire Council.

Ray Thomas, Chairman Purton Parish Council Thank You The Parish Council would like to thank John Toomers and Sons for their donation of bulbs to the Parish Council. The staff have been working extremely hard to plant the thousands of bulbs donated. I would like to also thank the generosity of residents of Purton and further afield for their continued support of seed donations for the flower banking at the Village Centre. We are looking forward to seeing the first signs of life shortly.

Parish Council Meeting Dates A full list of Council meeting dates for 2016 are now available on our website and will be posted monthly in the magazine.

Burials Committee Monday 7 March 2016 Council Monday 14 March 2016 Village Hall Charity Monday 21 March 2016 Annual Parish Meeting Monday 4 April 2016 at 7.30pm at the Village Hall, Purton.

The Annual Parish Meeting is a public meeting and an opportunity for residents to raise and discuss any issues that affect the Parish and residents.

The meeting is hosted by Purton Parish Council who will inform residents about work they have undertaken in the previous year and plans for the forthcoming one.

All residents are encouraged to attend and discuss with their elected representatives the kinds of services or improvements to existing ones they would like to see implemented.

Clean for The Queen Clean for The Queen is a campaign launched by Country Life magazine in partnership with Keep Britain Tidy to clear up Britain in time for The Queen’s 90th birthday in 2016.

It will rally an army of volunteers across the country to clean up their local areas and will include a special clean-up weekend on March 4-6. Adrian Evans, who has been appointed as Campaign Director, ran The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee River Pageant in 2012. With the full backing of Keep Britain Tidy, the campaign already has the support of well-known national organisations with a total membership in excess of 1.5 million, as well as individual ambassadors.

Now it’s up to all of us. Environment Minister Rory Stewart said: “Her Majesty The Queen is an inspiration to all of us. Her 90th birthday is a unique opportunity for people to come together in celebration of Her Majesty’s long service and dedication to this country.

“Everyone has a responsibility to keep their community tidy and this campaign Page 7 provides us with a great chance to protect our wildlife and improve the quality of our streets and public spaces. I hope it will help lead to a lasting legacy of a cleaner, tidier Britain.” To take part in Clean for The Queen, register at www.cleanforthequeen.co.uk where you’ll find advice and tips about how to join a group or to simply do your bit.
