Heating grants and Policing Precept survey

Here follows info on heating grants and a Policing Precept Survey:-

Police & Crime Commissioner wants your views on plans to increase policing precept by £10

Police and Crime Commissioner, Philip Wilkinson, is urging residents to have their say on proposals to increase the policing precept by £10 per year for the average household (band D).

This follows a recent police funding announcement from the Home Office which was based upon the assumption that all PCCs would seek to use the maximum flexibility afforded them by the Government to increase local precepts.
A £10 per year increase is a 4.3% increase and equates to an 83p rise, per month, per household, in a Band D property.
The proposal includes plans to:

Improve the way Wiltshire Police tackles Violence Against Women and Girls (VAWG) such as training for frontline staff to improve the service victims receive, bolstered digital investigation capability with the introduction of 5 new digital media investigators and dedicated officers and staff to review case files with the aim of improving investigation standards.
Increase the number of roads policing officers and collision investigators to improve road safety, drive up enforcement and ensure serious collisions are investigated promptly and to a high standard.
Increase the resources available to the child abuse and child internet exploitation teams to ensure that investigations are progressed as quickly as possible and children safeguarded from harm.
An extra 62 police officers recruited via the national uplift programme

Eastcourt receives life-saving defibrillator from Malmesbury League of Friends

Eastcourt is the latest local parish council to have a life-saving defibrillator, situated in the old telephone box in the centre of the village, and which has been largely funded by Malmesbury League of Friends (MLOF).
Thirteen local parish councils have already received funding from MLOF to install defibrillators in their villages. Many local parishes already have them, and others are still considering the offer from MLOF of £1,500 each towards their installation.
Automatic external defibrillators (AEDs) have been described as the single most important development in the treatment of sudden cardiac arrest. Designed for use by untrained lay persons, they have improved the outcomes of literally thousands of people who have suffered from cardiac arrests.
MLOF chairman David Hide said: “ We are delighted to have helped towards the installation of a defibrillator in Eastcourt. We’d like to hear from any other local parish councils who do not currently have one.”
Peter Gilchriest, Chairman of Crudwell  Parish Council, said: “ We are very grateful to have received this help from MLOF in placing this life-saving facility in the village.”

*Caution, Local Covid Infections very high!*

Hello all,
The number of people tested positive in the Malmesbury Crudwell and Oaksey area continues to rise to very worrying levels. The local reported number as at 17th October was 89 cases, that is 1089 per 100,000; more than double the national average for England of just over 400 per 100,000. You can check this out at:
Clearly a cause for great concern and we advise all to remain extremely cautious and to try to stay safe by following guidance.
We advise that you should wear a mask when meeting others or in shops, garages etc.
Contrary to what some seem to believe the pandemic is far from over here.
