Conservation and the environment were major features at this years’ fete with both the village conservation group (SMAWL) and Wiltshire Wildlife Trust having stands.
‘We have been overwhelmed at the number of entries we had to our conservation area design competition and wanted to show some of them to the village’ said Barry Thunder, chairman of SMAWL. ‘People were really impressed by the creativity and thought that had been put into them. We also took the opportunity to show people pictures of some of the work we have been doing and answer their questions about the site.’
‘Neil Burchell and I also had a lot of offers of help ‘ added Barry ‘ and we hope to see our numbers swelled at our next working party on Saturday the 24th of July and beyond.’
Several residents in the village contributed prizes to SMAWL, so that they could hold a prize draw at the fete and the lucky winners were.
