Welcome back to the BUZZ Roundup – keeping you in touch with all the good news and happy happenings in our wonderful village, whatever the weather 🙂
Keevil Cricket Club kicked off the new season in style against Trowbridge the weekend before last, on an afternoon of glorious sunshine at the beautiful Manor ground. The next home games will be the weekend of 8th and 9th May, with a League game against Swindon 3rds on the Saturday, and a Sunday game v Broughton Gifford. Bring a chair and park yourself in a sunny corner for a few hours – how much more perfect can village life get?
More summer fun to look forward to…

Calling all food heroes!
Its Foodbank Friday this week so if your super-kind donations could be in the box in the church porch by Thursday afternoon, you’ll definitely be a #foodhero! Any and all donations are very gratefully received – according to their latest Facebook post, Storehouse could also do with packets of crisps at the moment!
The Annual Parish Meeting was held on Monday, consisting of reports for the last two years (there was no APM last year due to Covid-19).
With Polling Day just over a week away, these are exciting times for Keevil as for the first time in eight years you will get the opportunity to elect the seven members of our Parish Council from the nine candidates standing – see here for details.
Summary of the Minutes of the 9th Annual General Meeting of the Keevil Community Amenities Trust held via Zoom on Thursday 22 April 2021 at 19.30.
The Chairman, Rob Kevan, reported that the past year had been very quiet due to the pandemic but thanked the volunteers, and the Trustees for all their support. He also asked Paul Lenaerts to pass on the thanks and appreciation of the Trustees to members of the Shed for all their hard work in the Village throughout the year. Although there had been little income during the year, both the Marquees and the Shed finances remained viable.
Paul Lenaerts was due to retire from KCAT this year, but was appointed to serve for a further four years. 40 chairs had been purchased and the Trustees agreed to consider the purchase of a further 40. Norman Owen reported that there were six potential bookings for 2021.
