Councillor Phil Holihead reports. As we race into Spring I’d like to raise awareness of the Wiltshire Messaging scheme and just how useful it can be in helping us to keep safe. Quite a few villagers have already signed-up, but the more we have the merrier as it means our community is even more crime aware. We are fortunate to live in a low-crime area, but there are occasions when crimes have been committed in our vicinity and we have been made aware within 24 hours by means of the messaging system. I post relevant messages on our Chapmanslade Community Facebook Group page but if you sign-up, you will receive messages directly to your email. So please do join the scheme now through www.wiltsmessaging.co.uk
