Welcome back to the BUZZ Roundup – keeping you up to date with all that’s happening in our wonderful village!
What do you get when you put two queens of enterprise together (in a safely-socially-distanced kinda way) with a pot of Earl Grey?…
Janice Maskrey and Rachel Howe are organising a SAFARI SALE FOR “CHARITIES OF CHOICE” on SATURDAY 19th SEPTEMBER – 11am – 3pm. The idea is to sell anything legal from your garage or front garden and give a percentage of your takings to a charity of your own choice. Maps of participating ‘stalls’ around the village will be available for shoppers on the day.
To join in with your own stall all you need to do is live in Keevil and register your interest so that your location is recorded on the map. More details from Janice (870438) or Rachel (870661) – registration deadline is 5pm on Monday 14th September to be sure to make it onto the map. The event will in due course be advertised in Bulkington, Great Hinton and Steeple Ashton. We’ll have a page up on the village website for it soon, in the meantime further information on this document SAFARI SALE FOR

- Thinking of having a bonfire? In a village with so many thatched dwellings, even if your own home doesn’t have a thatch roof, your neighbours probably do, so we all take the risks from airborne embers seriously, especially at this time of year. Thatched property insurance usually stipulates a minimum safe distance of 100 metres for any bonfire on your land, and Wiltshire Council have a really good page of advice and links about bonfires during Covid-19 here.
- Need a sane and simple checklist of basic steps to staying safe and healthy in a Covid-19 world? Public Health England have it nailed in this no-nonsense guide to working and living safely.
