News: A big thank you to all the volunteers below who have given their time and equipment to help refurbish the Chruch Street railings. When it became known that the Railings Replacement was about to take place. A small group listed below got together and decided that as the railings replacements were the only ones to be repainted.  We happy band Giles de Mare, Liz and Carl Warner, Richard and Geoffrey Stevens, David Barnett and Simon Wager.  The Duke of Somersets estate kindly arranged for David Barnett to assist with the refurbishment, this was much appreciated.    The decision was that we carry out the rest of the refurbishment of the existing railings. This was put to the Engineer for Wiltshire Council Denise Knott who very kindly arranged a supply of wire brushes, paint brushes and paint. Also agreeing that the traffic lights would remain until the work was completed .   In the meantime two of the little gang went ahead and prepared the railings as far as possible at the church end. The only area without traffic lights that it was safe to work on the railings.   The traffic lights arrived as planned and we were off! Pressure washers and scrapers to the fore. Within a day we were actively painting.       It was great working with the council engineers replacing the railings. They could not do enough for us and in fact replaced an extra stantion by the church entrance and replaced various broken bolts in that area. They also very kindly assisted with the final painting after all else was complete.   It's amazing what a small group of like minded people who care,  can do for their village and improve it. Community spirit maybe.   So we now have a smart set of railings in Church Street all painted and fresh. (Ready for the next vehicle to run into them)
