Valley Parishes Alliance

The Avon & Limpley Stoke Valley is an exceptional area. Protecting and conserving it, in the face of major regeneration and development in the wider BANES and Wiltshire area, is an ever increasing challenge. A cross-border Valley Parishes Alliance (VPA) has, therefore, been established to provide a unified voice on social, economic and environmental issues which could affect BANES and Wiltshire communities in the valley.

Bathford Parish Council is represented and they have just set up their own Valley Parishes Alliance website

The Parish Plan

This has now been published and a summary was delivered to all households within the Parish with the Bulletin. The full version is available for viewing on the notice boards in the Community Shop, in the Parish Office and in the Parish Hall. It is also available from this website using the link below but please be aware that it will take around 15 minutes to download on a standard dialup connection.

What is a Village Design Statement?

We all agree that Bathford is unique, but what makes it special?

The Village Design Statement, which has a wealth of detail on the Parish, has been approved and copies can be viewed in the Parish Office or available for sale to cover printing costs. As the full original document is 64 colour pages it was too large until now to place on the website but it has now been split into sections for ease of access.

Message from Parish Hall Management Committee 

Dear Parish Hall Users, If you live in the village you will know that the Parish Hall Committee are planning to replace the roof. The roof is approximately 100 years old and showing signs of deterioration, and also contains 5% Chrysotile asbestos. It was originally planned to carry out the work by a specialists Contractor during the summer school holidays, however, a large proportion of the funds raised ( 60,000 pounds) has to be paid before July, so the new start date was brought forward to cover the Easter Holiday (April 1 – 25). I understand today that the Contractor has requested an earlier start date of 25th March to erect scaffolding and completely tent the whole building. During the first week (25th – 29th March) the hall will be out of bounds during the day but can be used in the evening. Thereafter, nobody will be allowed to pass through the gate. Sincere apologies for the short notice and disruption caused. I am making inquiries with the RBL/Village Club, Mountain Wood Community Room (Polling Station) and the Church for possible alternative venues. Please contact me if you are interested.   M Wright Chairman Parish Hall Committee.
