Test your Smoke Alarm Every Month

Dorset & Wiltshire Fire and Rescue Service is asking local people to make monthly testing of their smoke alarms one of their New Year’s resolutions.

Many of us see January as an opportunity for a fresh start, and safety should be top of the list. As such, the Service is encouraging everyone to make sure they have enough smoke alarms in the home and that they work - it only takes a few seconds and can save lives.

Smoke alarms can give you the few extra seconds you need to escape in a fire. While the majority of homes across the country now have an alarm fitted, most people are not aware that the average alarm has a lifespan of just ten years and then needs replacing.

Housing Needs Survey

The Parish Council and Wiltshire Council are working together to identify the needs of local people in the Parish and would be grateful for your help.

Households in parishes across Wiltshire are being asked to take part in a survey that will give up-to-date information about local housing circumstances and aspirations. This information will be used to help us develop our housing and planning policies to best meet these needs, including whether there is a local need for affordable housing in parishes and, if so, of what size and type.
