Welcome back to the BUZZ Roundup – keeping you in touch with news in our wonderful village. And quiet as things are, as we all concentrate on staying safe and trying to keep positive every time we turn on the news, we do at least have the gift of the most tremendous friends and neighbours, and our beautiful countryside surroundings, as we continue to navigate these winter days in lockdown.

Ringing the changes…

Here at we’ve been doing some housekeeping. Since the Parish Council launched its own website last year, we have more freedom to provide information and content that affects the parish here on the village site. So here’s a roundup of some of the changes we’ve made:

  • PARISH MATTERS has replaced the Parish Council section – we’ve kept some of the content but combined it together, and removed some stuff we don’t need. We’ll be tidying this up a bit more over time.
  • We’ve been able to bring the Conservation and Village Design page over to this section now, which makes much better sense.
  • We’ve also added a page of resources and information specific to the A350 Bypass proposals, including links to Notices from the Parish Council. We’ll add to this over time as the proposals develop and new information becomes available.
  • And finally, we added a page about how we run the village site, and the governance structure we put in place last year.

We have other plans in the pipeline, and always welcome suggestions and ideas, so if there’s something else you’d like to see, get in touch.

Coming up…
  • Don’t forget Eric Lepine is back with his Pop-Up Takeaway service on 16th January – see page for full details.
  • Even though St Leonards Church is currently closed, remember a joint benefice service will be live-streamed each Sunday morning at 10:45am. The difference will be that no congregation will be present in church – because you will all be tuning in from home! Further details and a link for the service is on St James Church homepage
  • The A350 Melksham Bypass consultation closes this Sunday 17th January at 11:59.
  • Foodbank run is NEXT Friday – apparently they could really use some tinned veg at the moment! Also a massive from-the-heart shout of thanks from all at Storehouse for the amazing and ongoing village response, you really are the best!
And finally

One of the most useful things to have come out of Wiltshire Council in recent years has been the development of the MyWilts app. We wrote a post some time ago about this, but the Communications team at WC recently launched Find out more about how to use My Wilts – a new Guide to using the MyWilts reporting system. Download the PDF MyWilts QnA and find out how easy it is to report something to Wiltshire Council.

If you have any queries about using MyWilts, direct them to To report something with MyWilts, go to or use the MyWilts app.

That’s all for now – find us on Facebook for real-time discussions on Keevil Village, marketplace on For Sale, Free or Wanted in Keevil, or wander down memory lane on Keevil Memories… thank you for all your support, and if you have any news, pictures or stories to share, don’t hesitate to get in touch
