  3. 3. Dear Friends, I am si ng in my study looking out on yet another rainy, windy and cold day. It could be worse... But I am sure like me you are looking to brighter be er days. I think we all long for a life that is full of ‘all things bright and beau ful’. Our theme for this year in our parishes is ‘Life in all its fullness’. This is a promise of what life is like when we become true disciples of Christ. We have already launched the prayer for the church for 2014 - you will find a copy of this in church. It is a prayer from ‘The Message’ version of the Bible and is from the le er to the Colossians. This le er has such a lot to teach us about being disciples and receiving that wonderful blessing of ‘life in all its fullness’. During Lent we shall be studying Colossians in our sermon series ‘Be complete in Christ’. We will also be offering you further opportuni es for reflec on at the Oasis Medita ons based on the events of Holy Week. If you would like a tradi onal Bible study you could join the York Course being held in the home of Liz and Roger Hillman; again details of this are published in the yellow booklet ‘Life in all its fullness’ which is available in church to guide you on your Lenten journey. Lent is a limited period and I would like to encourage you to make this short-term commitment to spend me in engaging in some of the opportuni es on offer. Not all of them offer a warm, fuzzy experience some may be more challenging. Lent is for all people and a gi8 from God to allow him to change us for the be er not only as individuals but as a church. ‘Jesus came and stood among them and said, ‘Peace be with you.’ Jesus comes to bring wholeness, ’Shalom’ to those who look to him - this is our prayer for ourselves, our families, our church and our communi es. With prayers for every blessing, Vicky Fleming Priest in Charge towerandtap@southmarston.org.uk 3

  8. 8. Recycle Box Collections - Update Swindon Council says sorry to residents who need an extra recycling box Extra recycling boxes will not be available for collec on star ng from Sunday 9th February due to an unforeseeable delay and the Council apologises to residents for any inconvenience caused. People who s ll need an addi onal box are encouraged to con nue pu ng any surplus recycling in alterna ve plas c containers or carrier bags and collec on crews will pick it up as a temporary measure. The box delay is due to a problem with the supplier and we are working hard to ensure they are delivered and available to pick up at the collec on points as soon as possible, hopefully at some point next week. More than 3,500 boxes have already been issued to residents who need an extra one to accommodate the weekly to fortnightly recycling collec on service change, star ng Monday, 3 February. The recycling changes mean that residents are asked to put out their recycling on the next day they are due a wheelie bin or blue bag collec on for general waste. Plas cs in clear bags should also be put out on this day. There are various ways people can make the most of space in their recycle boxes, including squashing ns and cans, breaking down any cardboard boxes, stacking bo les neatly and pu ng shredded paper into a large envelope or cereal box. For further updates on extra box availability and more informa1on about the service change, please see www.swindon.gov.uk Cllr Richard Hurley, Cabinet Member for Public Protec on, Housing and StreetSmart, said: “I would like to personally apologise to all residents who s ll need an extra box and reassure them that we are doing all we can to make boxes available as soon as possible. I appreciate this will be frustra ng for some residents and encourage them to keep recycling by pu ng any surplus in alterna ve plas c containers or carrier bags for crews to pick up as normal. Thank you for your con nued pa ence whilst we work to resolve this as a priority – your coopera on is really appreciated.” StreetSmart can be contacted via the links on the SBC website, or by emailing them at streetsmart@swindon.gov.uk 8 http://southmarston.org.uk

  13. 13. Roads & Connectivity Resolutions The Parish Council discussed the issues of roads and connec vity at the Parish Council mee ng on the 18th February 2014. The following resolu ons were passed unanimously, with all Parish Councillors in a endance: Consulta$on over the last few years has confirmed that the top concern of local residents is the impact by development on local road networks and junc$ons onto the A420. A par$cular cause of concern is the likely increase in traffic using Pound Corner and Old Vicarage Lane to access the planned new community facili$es and school. Resolu on 1: • South Marston Parish Council confirms its agreement with the dra5 SM SPD’s proposal/requirement for a road link connec$ng the new areas of development running north of Manor Farmhouse. This should provide road access into the village central area from the south and from the west rather than via a ‘bypass’ and exis$ng village roads as suggested by the developer’s outline planning applica$on. • To enable this to happen, the Parish Council is willing to allow access across the southern end of the exis$ng recrea$on ground to the school and community facili$es provided the community gains the compensatory green open space behind Bell Gardens. • The Parish Council will con$nue nego$a$ons with HHL and other developers to achieve an integrated plan for the village, consistent with the dra5 Supplementary Planning Documents and Local Plan. Resolu on 2: Housing development at Crown Timber has previously been refused as being too remote from the village centre. The Parish Council will oppose residen$al development of the Crown Timber or Thornhill sites without: • A sa$sfactory footpath provision from the site to the centre of the village in the first phase of development. • A design layout for both sites that enables appropriate links with the proposed Eastern Villages development for pedestrians and cyclists as well as cars. From the 1st March 2014, the South Marston Parish Council telephone number will be 01793 686150 towerandtap@southmarston.org.uk 13

  17. 17. Paul the Postman Many of you will have no ced that Paul, our village postman, has been off work since Christmas as he is wai ng for a knee opera on. Robbie Taylor contacted Paul’s manager at the Royal Mail to send Paul our best wishes for a speedy return. Paul’s response is below: ‘I’d like to say a massive THANK YOU for the e-mail you sent to my managers as it was totally unexpected. It made me feel very emo$onal and proud as the last 3 months since I injured my knee have been very hard, as the longest I’ve ever been off work before was two weeks since I started work 30 years ago. All I’ve ever done with my customers in South Marston the last 13 years is to treat them the way I would want my postman to treat me, so to get such a nice e-mail for just doing my job was a much needed boost. I always say at work that I’m very lucky to deliver to such a lovely village that is full of people that I can call friends as much as they are my customers, and would happily stay on my round $ll I re$re. The opera$on on my knee is not due to be done un$l April so unfortunately it will be a while $ll I get back to work but if you could kindly pass on a personal THANK YOU and say hello from me to anyone in the village I would really be grateful.’ Robbie has very kindly agreed to act as a collection point for any cards or messages you would like to pass on to Paul and can be contacted on 823757.

  19. 19. Great Daffodil Appeal 2014 Marie Curie Cancer Care Marie Curie Cancer Care provides free hands-on nursing care for people with all terminal illnesses either in their own home or in one of the charity’s nine hospices. Marie Curie is best known for its network of over 2,000 Marie Curie Nurses, who provide care to pa ents across the UK, as well as emo onal support for their families. The charity provided care to more than 38,000 people with terminal illnesses, and is the largest provider of hospice beds outside the NHS. The Great Daffodil Appeal Marie Curie’s Great Daffodil Appeal kicks off across the country on 1st March. Volunteer collectors will be out in force throughout the month of March encouraging everyone to give a dona on and wear one of the charity’s daffodil pins. All the funds raised by the appeal will help Marie Curie Nurses provide more care for people with terminal illnesses, at the me when they need the most support. The Great Daffodil Appeal doesn’t just raise much-needed funds; it also raises awareness of Marie Curie services and the need for high quality nursing care for people with terminal illnesses. As people live longer, increasing numbers of people have long-term condi ons requiring more complex support towards the final stages of life. Despite this, end of life care is an under-researched area. Marie Curie invests in high quality research to provide real benefits to people with terminal illnesses, their carers and families. Marie Curie is the only charity exclusively funding end of life care research and invests around £3million per year in research. So please support the Great Daffodil Appeal, and help give people with terminal illnesses the care they need and deserve at the end of their lives. For more informa1on call 0845 601 3107 (local rate) or visit www.mariecurie.org.uk/daffodil towerandtap@southmarston.org.uk 19
  20. 20. Letters What's Going On? I do like to know what is going on in the village, par cularly with the proposed expansion, so since my arrival in October 2012 I have made a point of a ending the monthly South Marston Parish Council (SMPC) mee ngs. I know more about drainage and culverts than I have ever known and I could probably hold my own in a conversa on about the village allotments thanks to Barry Thunder. Two ini a ves, Speed Watch and the 20 MPH zoning led by Tony Leathart and Colin McEwen respec vely, should ensure traffic adheres to sensible speed limits making the village a safer place to be. There are procedures for dealing with parishioners' concerns so write in if you need help to resolve a problem. I have learned what can be done to tackle troublesome neighbours as well as hedges and leaves crea ng hazardous condi ons for drivers and cyclists. Ken Millard informs the group about proposed extensions and building works, whilst Sylvia Brown takes the lead on the village expansion. There is a lot going on and mee ngs are eye opening. The school is being expanded onto the Rec and if we want to know what progress is being made on this topic SMPC says we need to contact Swindon Borough Council. If like me you want to keep up with proposals for the use of what will remain of the Rec (a new hall for the village with car parking and access road possibly) come along and have a say either on the Council (there are two vacancies) or join me in the 'public gallery' to listen in. You will be made very welcome. Thank you Adye Goodenough for your company these past months. Of course si ng through these mee ngs is not everyone's cup of tea so check out the village website for SMPC reports, minutes and agendas. If you need help to get to mee ngs remember our new door-to-door transport scheme. Either way it's good to know what's going on that affects life in the village today and what's going on at this point in me that is shaping the future for our children and grandchildren. Time well spent I think. Anne Featherstone, Stonecro5 (Re$red but never without a job to do) 20 http://southmarston.org.uk
  21. 21. Community Speed Watch Scheme VOLUNTEERS NEEDED TO OPERATE THE SPEEDGUN SPEEDWATCH UNIFORM PROVIDED The Community Speed Watch (CSW) scheme, run by the Swindon Borough Council in conjunc on with the Police, gives local people the chance to be ac vely involved in making South Marston’s roads safer for everyone in the village. With the expansion of the village, many more cars are expected to use the village roads and, if the 20mph zone is introduced, the CSW Team will be there to help ensure that it is observed. If you can spare just an hour or two a month at a me to suit you (maybe before or a8er work) then please contact the village co-ordinator: Tony Leathart on 01793 827744 or 07765703228 or tony.leathart@b1nternet.com towerandtap@southmarston.org.uk 21
