Bee Friendly Chapmanslade is Buzzzzing

Chapmanslade has always been a friendly open village. But now a group of villagers want it to be especially friendly to the bee population, which according to the Soil Association is in danger due to falling bee numbers across the world. So the good folks of Chapmanslade are doing their bit to create a more bee-friendly environment.
During April, villagers got together to form the ‘Bee Friendly Chapmanslade’ group.

Neighbourhood Watch

Councillor Phil Holihead is raising awareness about how useful the Wiltshire Messaging scheme 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. Phil posts relevant messages on our Chapmanslade Community Facebook Group page but if you sign-up, you’ll receive messages directly to your email. So please do join the scheme now through
