Welcome back to the BUZZ Roundup – keeping you in touch with news and events in our wonderful village, whatever the weather.

First up, Keevil School would like to inform residents of their Harvest Festival at the Church this Tuesday 28th September – as a result, there may be a heavy flow of traffic for a short period of time.

Gathering and baling, September 2020
Coming up…
  • It’s back! The former Tea & Chat afternoons are relaunching as the 1st TUESDAY CLUB, with our reigning Wassail King Bob Ayres now in charge of the teapot, on Tuesday 5th October back in the village hall 2.30-4pm. THERE WILL BE CAKE! And tea. And chat. And the Post Office is open too 🙂
  • Some fabulous music is lined up for the FOLK NIGHT on 9th October – Hilary PaveyFly Yeti FlyFeral Beryl and a first-time welcome to The Lost Trades – we can’t wait!
  • Breakfast in Church? Oh yes! Bacon butties and sausage sandwiches, a nice cup of coffee or tea – that has to be worth popping in for, 9-11am on Saturday 16th October:
  • The annual QUIZ NIGHT & Fish & Chip Supper is also back this year, so gather your teams and your wits for 23rd October – deets on the page:
  • The Keevil Ramblers had some smashing walks in September, and the ramble Colin Dimbylow has lined up for Thursday October 28th promises to be another lovely jaunt, this time around Cherhill and Compton Bassett – see page for full details; 
And finally…

We have two exciting volunteer positions opening up! 

Keevil has had an active Neighbourhood Watch scheme since 1987 and in 2008, following encouragement from Wiltshire Council, a Civil Emergency Volunteer was appointed by the Parish Council to draw up and maintain an Emergency Response Plan. Paul Lenaerts took over the role of Keevil Neighbourhood Watch Co-ordinator from James Banfield in 2001, and Dave Bouault the latter role – both have worked closely together for the past 13 years because there is a lot of synergy between the two roles.

Both David and Paul have decided it is finally time to hang up their clipboards, so the Parish Council would like to invite interested residents to put their names forward for both these impending vacancies. The duties are not onerous but form a vital part of our village resilience planning that can really make a difference in those rare times of need.

If you are interested in volunteering for either post, please contact Geoff West, Chair, Keevil Parish Council 01380 870425 Job descriptions for each role are being written and will be available from Geoff or on the Parish Council website shortly.

That’s all for now folks – 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

Bob and Sarah #StaySafe 🙂
