Plastic Bottle Christmas Tree Highlights Community Litter Pick In Warminster

Tuesday 4th December 2018:

Plastic Bottle Christmas Tree Highlights Community Litter Pick In Warminster

A member of Warminster Town Council staff has made an eight foot high Christmas tree from empty plastic bottles. Sally Ward made the tree entirely in her own time to highlight the Warminster community litter pick.

The tree is called “The Salvaged Spruce”. It took over a month to make and contains around 200 empty bottles. Town Councillors have been hugely impressed with the tree and have praised Sally for her hard work and inspiring creation. 
The message of the tree is about the importance of the environment and the need for people to reduce their use of materials, particularly plastic, and to encourage reuse and recycling. The tree is currently on display in the Warminster Civic Centre and will soon be moved to the Parish Church of St. Denys (The Minster) as part of their Christmas Tree Festival.

 'The Salvaged Spruce', 
made of plastic bottles by Sally Ward.

The community litter picks are usually held on the first Saturday of every month and target a different part of Warminster each time. All the litter pickers, be they members of the public, Councillors or Council staff, are volunteers. Anyone is welcome to join the litter pick team. The next litter pick will be on Saturday 2nd February 2019. Further details will be posted on Warminster Town Council’s website and Facebook page or you can register with the Council to get an email alert.

Warminster Town Councillors Choose Three Schemes To Fund

Thursday 29th November 2018:

Warminster Town Councillors Choose Three Schemes To Fund.

Warminster Town Councillors have selected their top three projects for funding by the Town Council’s share of the Community Infrastructure Levy.

The Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) is a sum paid by developers on new housing developments in Warminster. 75% of the money goes to Wiltshire Council and 25% goes to Warminster Town Council.

The three projects chosen by Town Councillors are:
• Enhancement of skatepark facilities in the Lake Pleasure Grounds (Town Park).
• Upgrading of the paddling pool in the Lake Pleasure Grounds (Town Park).
• Additional minor highways improvements in Warminster.

Councillor Chris Robbins, Chairman of Warminster Town Council’s Finance and Assets Committee said: “The purpose of the Community Infrastructure Levy is to help address the demands that development places on Warminster. These three projects will be visible and tangible and wouldn’t realistically be funded from other resources without a contribution from the Community Infrastructure Levy. I am pleased that local people will be able to see positive benefits from new housing being built locally. Once these projects get underway and we receive more CIL funding, we will consider what next to add to the short list.”

Warminster Skatepark given £20,000 Boost

Thursday 29th November 2018:

Warminster Skatepark Given £20,000 Boost.

Plans for the Community Skatepark in the Lake Pleasure Grounds (Town Park) Warminster, have been given a significant boost by the award of a £20,000 grant by the Armed Forces Covenant Fund.

The Armed Forces Covenant Fund gives grants to projects that will benefit the armed forces and the community. The award is particularly welcome as the Armed Forces Covenant say funding is limited, so they will only be able to fund the very best projects.

Councillor Chris Robbins, Chairman of Warminster Town Council’s Finance and Assets Committee said: “I am delighted that we have been awarded this funding. The armed forces are a very important part of the Warminster Community. We have a track record of engagement and partnership working. We have a real understanding of the issues and pressures on armed forces families, particularly children. The skatepark will be used to promote integration between military and civilian families This funding boost is a huge vote of confidence in the project to provide a new skatepark.”
