Litter Ambassadors

A local volunteer who regularly litter picks around the village has encouraged other members of the parish to become litter ambassadors.  The idea being you are responsible for keeping your particular area clean, tidy and free of litter.  So far, we have 12 litter ambassadors around the village.

If interested please contact Simon Ellis at blezellis@hotmail.com

Pewsey Parish Council

Much of the maintenance of village assets, such as grass and hedge cutting, is carried out by contractors who are paid through the funds collected from Council Tax.

However, there are a number of smaller jobs that the Parish Council undertake to do themselves at little or no expense to the village. These are usually hands-on, one-off, or infrequent jobs, such as the spring cleaning of the play parks, planting trees and flowers, weeding, etc.

If you think that you could help the Parish in the enhancement of our village please contact the clerk so we can include you on our list of volunteers.

Any other suggestions that you think may be helpful to the village please let us know.
