Lap Dancing at The George Inn?

Story updated: July 27th

We have been informed that this event was requested by a third party and was not instigated by the owner of The George.

The story has been amended. 

A further development in the story of The George.

A wanted advert for lap dancers has appeared on a Freeads site.  The George is described as “Busy venue with great earnings potential”.

The first evening featuring said lap dancers will, according to the ad, be on Saturday, August 1st  between 7:00 pm and 2:00 am and become a regular monthly event.

Your Parish Council are aware of this.

Wiltshire’s Big Pledge 2015 – Make a Difference


The Big Pledge aims to encourage Wiltshire residents to lead healthier and more active lives and to engage with their communities.  The theme this year is ‘make a difference’ with 12 pledges that people can make as an individual, a group, a work team, a family or a community.

‘Big Pledge – Make a Difference’ runs to the end of September 2015, participants are encouraged to write their pledge on the pledge card, take a photo or video and upload it to Facebook or Twitter using #BigPledge. All those submitting a pledge photo or videos will be entered into a prize draw for an iPad mini (terms and conditions available on the website).

The Big Pledge sign up website has plenty of ideas and tips on how to choose and  successfully complete your pledge. It could be as simple as pledging to help a neighbour or a more difficult one such as doing the sports or sugar swap challenge.

Pledges can be fun, such as ‘eating a rainbow’ and rewarding for example raising money for a local charity. You can also view the Council’s Big Pledge website.

What will YOU pledge?

Please tell colleagues, friends and/or family and any others you think may be interested in taking part.

With your help and support we can make the Big Pledge “Make a difference”
