The Annual Parish Community Meeting will be held on Friday 27th May 2022 on the Banfield Recreation Ground

with family activities and refreshments from 4.30pm, and the Parish Meeting proper starting at 6pm

Each year the Parish Council has to report to the village on its activities over the last year; this is done at a Parish meeting which, although chaired by the Parish Council, is not a Council meeting and all parishioners are welcome to attend, and to speak on matters they feel are important to our community.

This year, we’d like to do things a little differently and make it a real community affair that truly celebrates the groups and people that make Keevil such an amazing place to live, work, and raise a family.

After two years of Covid restrictions, it’s time to remember just how much Keevil has to offer: to children, families, and the perennially young at heart, and especially all the new residents who’ve arrived in this special pocket of Wiltshire countryside!

The many and varied groups that are such an integral party of our village life have been invited to come along and introduce themselves. There will be stands of information, people to talk to, and lots of activities for youngsters, including cooking round a camp fire with members of the Girlguiders, a few overs with Keevil Cricket Club, artistic creativity with the Art Group, dressing-up with the Drama Group costumes (cameras at the ready mum and dad!), and much more – from the Walking Group to the Community Shed, the Women’s Institute, and everything in between – plus the Keevil Singers will be performing a chorus or two of some popular songs!

STOP PRESS: A member of the Community Policing Team (CPT), PCSO Janet Gould, who covers the Keevil area, will be present to answer any questions you may have, and also members of the 47th Regiment Royal Artillery, who fly the Watchkeeper Tactical Uncrewed Aircraft System which completed successful trials from Keevil Airfield last year, will be coming along.

Even more importantly, there will be wine, soft drinks or hot beverages, biscuits and nibbles, and a chance to meet and mingle with other villagers.

The Parish Council will deliver its report at 6pm, and there will be plenty of opportunity to talk to councillors during the afternoon.

There’s an official invite coming your way soon, in the meantime Save-the- Date in your diary and come along and join in the fun!

THE ORGANISING GROUP: Geoff West, Alison Rasey, Bob Ayres, Diane Bouault, Sarah Dow, Simon Newton, and Stacy Gough.
