  3. 3. Dear Friends, The season of love is here, February 14th is fast approaching, and Valen ne cards have been in the shops since the New Year so there's no excuse! Demonstra ng our love for another person is important, choosing the right card with the right verse, wri ng the right things inside and remembering to deliver or post it in a mely way, all show the other person that you love them. Throw in a nice gi% and a meal at a posh restaurant and surely that's love isn't it? You've all seen the advert, 'a dog's life is not just for Christmas.' Well here's another one: 'love isn't just for Valen ne’s day.' The Bible tells us that: 'Love is pa ent, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonour others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.' How many of us experience this kind of love? The gimmicks are great and are o%en well received by those we love, but can we con nue to demonstrate love on the other 364 days of the year? Jesus came to show us how to love each other, but I don't remember any men on of Valen ne cards in the Bible, only real love, only the demonstra on of loving another person as you yourself want to be loved. Why don't you try this... Take the word love out of the Bible reading above and insert your own name before each statement, read it through slowly and see how it feels. Do you recognise yourself? Can any of us honestly say that's how we always behave around those we love? Maybe it's something to ponder on at this me of year or even a work in progress... Have a happy and loving February Rev Helen Baber towerandtap@southmarston.org.uk 3
  4. 4. Church News Christmas Gi$s At Christmas there was an opportunity to give a gi% towards the church’s fabric fund.

  8. 8. Wiltshire Police Focus on Garden Crime Over the past few weeks there have been a number of reported the%s from gardens in villages around Highworth. On 28th November and 12th December, saddle stones were taken from Sevenhampton. On 18th December a post-box (which is a 4% high metal plinth with a concrete dove cot on top) was taken from Inglesham. Please be aware of suspicious vehicles or persons taking a interest in garden ornaments or furniture. If you have any informa on regarding the the%s, please contact PC 1945 Jackson on 101 or call Crimestoppers 0800 555 111. General garden security advice includes: * When plan ng, put heavy stone in the boBom of pots or planters to make them more difficult to be moved. * If possible, anchor valuable garden ornaments or furniture to the ground and keep a photographic record to help officers to trace items back to their owner. * Security mark items in your shed and any valuable items that might be in your garden. * Make sure your shed is secure, that there are no panels which could be easily damaged and fit good quality locks and an alarm. * Consider securing items such as ladders, bikes or large power tools in your shed by chaining them to a strong anchor point. * Put all your tools and any children's bikes or outdoor toys securely away once they are finished with. ∗ Plan ng bushes with prickly leaves or thorns close to any entry points could deter a poten al thief. A gravel pathway or driveway can also act as a good deterrent. ∗ Consider installing outdoor mo on-sensor security lights. ∗ If you are away on holiday, ask your neighbours or a friend to keep an eye on your home and garden. 8 http://southmarston.org.uk

  10. 10. The Simple Approach... Some mes the simple approach to a problem can achieve the desired result. This has proven to be the case when the village school wanted to improve safety for the children at drop off and pick up mes. Both the car park and the footpath in front of the school were key problem areas One of the school Governors, a Parish Councillor and the Head Teacher worked together to get things moving. The car park was marked out for two disabled parking spaces and a safe walking zone for all pedestrians. This was achieved by u lising the company contracted to mark out sports areas in the school playground to also undertake the work in the car park. Funding for this was a shared cost between the school and the Parish Council. The footpath in front of the school has long been a safety risk to all pedestrians and together with constant flooding, has made life unpleasant for all using it. With the support from the Borough drainage team, the underground pipes were cleared of tree roots, solving most of the flooding problems. The contractors laying the high voltage cable through the village were “persuaded” to fund the removal of the old footpath surface and to lay a new tarmac surface. The school worked with the parents, so that these works could take place during the morning drop-off me. Next on the safety list is the crea on of a school safety zone along Old Vicarage Lane. It is hoped that this can form part of the overall village 20 mph zone to help control “rat running” through the village. Further village ini a ves will include improvements to footpath 17 (which runs through the solar farm on the Highworth Road to Nigh ngale Lane) as well as work on the drainage ditches from Highworth Road to Nigh ngale Lane. If YOU would like to become involved in any works or planning connected to improving the village environment, please contact the Parish Clerk, Amanda Burchell on 07804 225571 or email on clerksmpc@southmarston.org.uk. 10 http://southmarston.org.uk

South Marston CofE Primary School Disabled Parking Spaces Unfortunately, there have been some instances where able-bodied people have parked in the new disabled parking spaces at the school. It would be greatly appreciated if these spaces could be kept free for families at the school and in the community who need them. There have been occasions when disabled members of the school community have been unable to park due to unauthorised use of these bays. towerandtap@southmarston.org.uk 11
