Join us to discuss the Village Garden

South Marston Open Spaces Working Group invites you to a meeting in the village hall on Friday 27th April to discuss improvements to the Village Garden and War Memorial which is located in the centre of the village, opposite the school.

The meeting will be hosted by Chris Brooks and Anne Featherstone who are both members of the Open Spaces Working Group. It will run from 7pm – 9pm with some light refreshment provided.

This year is the centenary of the end of WWI (11th November 1918), and the formation of the RAF (1st April 1918). Chris and Anne are looking to bring together people who are interested in preparing the garden for these special dates and planning for the garden’s future.

Funding has been secured from the F&E Harris Memorial Trust and
South Marston Parish Council and remedial works have already been carried out.

The meeting is an opportunity for everyone to share ideas and/or offer practical help for 2018 and beyond.

We hope you are able to come along. Please call Chris (01793 829868) or Anne (07966593026) if you have any questions/ideas.

New date: Big Spring Clean in South Marston

Following the snow last week, we were forced to reschedule our village Spring Clean to a new date of Sunday 29th April 2018. 

Can you help? Any time you can give will be much appreciated. We really need your help and everyone is welcome! Those with children can help by collecting litter in safer areas around the village. All equipment (including litter grabbers) will be provided by SMRA and the Parish Council.

We will be meeting at 11am in the Village Hall.

If you are unable to join us on the day, you can help by spending a few minutes tidying outside your property. It all helps.

Let’s all work together making South Marston a clean & safe place to live. Let’s stamp out littering & fly tipping. For further information please contact Mandie Olive on 07794076015 or

Thank you to our contractor, AllBuild Building & Landscape, who are kindly supporting this event by disposing of all waste collected on the day for free.
