Public Art TV Broadcaster seeks amazing stories!
Published January 26, 2018 13:38

Public Art Broadcast Project

Hi there,

I am developing an exciting, new programme for a major UK Broadcaster and we need the help of parish councils to get the word out to the residents of small villages and communities around the UK.

The idea behind the show is that we will be funding numerous public art projects around the country and we want the public to nominate their own village to win the chance of creating a new landmark for their community.

The unique process will see established artists working with the local people to create large pieces of public art that have specific meaning to their community. We want them to use public art as a way of creating a discussion about their own shared collective identity.

We would like residents of small towns and villages to get in touch and tell us what makes their hometown so special. Does it have a rich history? Is something or someone famous associated with it? Do they have interesting traditions? Has the community fallen on hard times and is in need of reminding people about how special it really is? What is their unique story?

The most important thing is that the town has a strong sense of community and a commitment to the project, as this is a journey they will all go on together with the goal to create a legacy piece of public art that generations will be proud of.

We’re hoping that parish councils will be able to spread the word to their local residents by forwarding the email on to the right people and displaying the flyer (attached to this email) where it can be easily seen.

A member of our team will be in touch to any applicants we wish to progress further.

Thank you in advance

Policing Precept 2018/19

Published January 3, 2018 11:20

Dear Sir or Madam,

I wanted to inform you about the launch of my consultation on the policing precept for 2018/19. I would be grateful if you could share this and make residents aware of opportunities for consultation. The details are set out below or you can access a video of me outlining the proposals at

The policing precept consultation which launches today (2/1/2018) is looking for the views of Wiltshire residents on the proposed increase of £12 a year.

Currently the average band D household contributes £14.19 per month to local policing, but if residents back the proposal then this would rise to £15.19 per month.

As a Force, Wiltshire Police has seen the second highest increase in demand across the country in the last year yet the funding we receive from central government doesn’t recognise the increasing pressures our service is under.

In fact we receive the fourth lowest funding per head of population in England and Wales.

Since 2010, Wiltshire Police has received £19 million less but have been responding to more crimes and supporting more members of the public year on year.

Whilst we live in an incredibly safe county, there’s only so far the budget will stretch and we’re streamlining our services to ensure they’re as efficient as possible at the same time as keeping the public safe, but we are feeling the squeeze more than ever. Without this increase Wiltshire Police will have to look at further reductions in officers and staff to close a budget gap of around £3m.

That’s why I am asking whether residents in Wiltshire and Swindon would be prepared to pay an extra £1 a month to help bridge this gap.

This increase will mean that I can protect frontline services from further reductions and maintain the current level of service.

The consultation which runs from 2nd January 2018 to midday 31st January 2018 wants to hear your views on the proposed increase.

For more information on how to share your views please visit, you can also email or use #AskAngusPCC on social media.

With best wishes for 2018,

Angus Macpherson MBE

Wiltshire Council is carrying out a routine review of our mobile library routes and would appreciate the comments of the Parish Council and your community on the proposed mobile library schedules for your area. We wish to engage with as many people as possible who may wish to comment on the review.
