Welcome back to the BUZZ Roundup – keeping you in touch with news and events in our wonderful village of Keevil come rain or shine.

First, a huge group thank to everyone who turned out for the ANNUAL KEEVIL GBSC LITTER PICK on Saturday; our haul was not as large as previous years which is almost certainly down to so many villagers taking a bag with them on their regular constitutionals! See the Shed page for some images, including of past years…

And finally…

As of last Friday, the Government removed some COVID-19 restrictions and introduced new guidance, and with local case rates still high, Wiltshire Council is asking people to continue to be courteous of others by wearing a face covering in indoor crowded spaces, practicing good hand and respiratory hygiene and continuing to stay at home if they are unwell to limit the transmission of all infectious diseases. Kate Blackburn, Director of Public Health, said: “As we adjust to living safely with COVID-19, it is important that we keep in mind that the virus is still very prevalent in our communities and poses a health risk, particularly to vulnerable people.”

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
