Mobile Library – Startley
The Mobile Library run by Wiltshire Council visits Startley every 4 weeks on a Friday from 9.30 – 9.45am.
There have been no visits since December 2017 and we have been asked whether another location in Startley might attract at least 3 customers per visit.
If residents wish to keep the service, it needs to be used otherwise it is likely to be withdrawn.

Road Closures – February & March 2019
The Wessex Water works are scheduled to restart after the Christmas break on 2nd January and will now be extended to 6th April as they have been finding the ground conditions difficult. This affects the road between Great Somerford, at the junction with Shiptons Lane, and Startley.
The fibre cable works in Seagry Road have been delayed and will now take place between 8th April and 10th May so there will not be any overlap of dates.
