Local Charity Gul Raising Funds For A New Facility


At this time of year it’s very cold, wet and is dark in the afternoons. All staff and volunteers at Gul love what they do and work there come rain or shine. Gul has just installed a new solar system and has finally been able to provide electricity to the facility but still rely on a small Gas cooker to heat water for cups of tea when it is very cold. We would like to ask for your support to help Gul provide a new portacabin style building at its outdoor centre for those that visit the charity, its hard working volunteers and staff.

Have your say towards the A303 Environmental Statement

Shrewton Parish Council, as a ‘Consultation Body’, has been requested to provide any information it considers relevant for an Environmental Statement concerning the proposed A303 tunnel and Winterbourne Stoke bypass.

The Environmental Statement includes topics such as air quality, cultural heritage, landscape, biodiversity, geology and soils, road drainage and the water environment, materials, noise and vibration, people and communities, climate and combined and cumulative effects (e.g. the impact on human health is a combination of air quality, noise and vibration, people and communities, road drainage and its effect on the water environment).

To enter your comments please email them to shrewtonparishcouncil@gmail.com. The closing date for this survey is 15 November, this so the statutory deadline of 20 November, a cut-off date that cannot be extended, can be met.
