Can you help?

The NHS Blood & Transplant team aim to collect 6,000 units of blood every day but we are still have available appointments at the following sessions.

Blood is needed for treating a variety of illnesses and conditions as well as sudden trauma from accidents and emergencies so we greatly appreciate every donation. Just one donation can save and improve up to three lives

Donating blood is quick and easy and booking an appointment is even simpler!

South Marston says Yes!

At today’s Neighbourhood Plan referendum,  over 95% of those that voted said yes to the Neighbourhood Plan being adopted.

The turnout at 47% exceeded the recent votes for neighbourhood plans in Highworth and Wroughton.

Chair of South Marston Parish Council, Colin McEwen, said “this is a good result for village; it gives us a lever in negotiations with both the developers and the planning officers. 

We would like to thank everybody who voted and in particular, those who contributed to the development of the neighbourhood plan.”
