Household Recycling Centres – you’ll need to book !

From Wiltshire Council – updated news about Household Re-cycling Centres:

From Monday 8 June, you must book a slot before visiting a household recycling centre. Slots will be available to book from Thursday 4 June.

From Monday 8 June, all visitors to a Wiltshire household recycling centre (HRC) must pre-book a slot to visit beforehand. You can book a slot three days in advance, and slots will go live on Thursday 4 June. This is an advance-booking system, so you will be unable to book a same day visit to a HRC.

Up until the sites close on Sunday 7 June, we will still be operating a postcode entry system to visit HRCs.

National Volunteer Week

This is National Volunteer Week 2020

There are numerous people who volunteer in Hankerton and this is to say thank you to them for being good neighbours and keeping the village safe during Lockdown by helping with shopping, collecting prescriptions and keeping in contact.

All year round volunteers pick up litter, run societies, arrange events , produce newsletters,  a website and look after the village and churchyard.

The Parish Council is made up of community- minded people doing their best to ensure local interests are protected and the precept spent carefully.

Thank you to them all!

Clap For Carers

As you will have seen there is talk of making tonights ClapForCarers the last. There will be differing views on this, it is clear however that, moving forward, the level of support for the weekly event may tail off. To that end, lets make tonight’s event, the best so far, hands, pans, air horns, car horns, whatever you have to hand.
