Westmill Woodland Burial Ground
Westmill Woodland burial ground near Watchfield offers a beautiful non-denominational burial ground for people of all faiths or none. It is run as a not for profit Community Interest Company and you can find out more about us by visiting www.woodlandburialwestmill.co.uk.
Due to Covid 19 restrictions we have lost some of our core staff who need to isolate or shield so we are looking for a few more people to come along and help at funerals on an ad-hoc basis. You need to be physically fit, have transport, like working with people and being outside (in all weathers!). Most funerals take about 3-4 hours with set up and clear up time but they can be longer or shorter as each one is tailored to the needs of that family. We offer training and our team find the work very rewarding. If you are interested give us a call in the office 01367 700615 Monday, Wednesday or Friday morning 10-1.
Please spread the word.

Our new vicar
Now that Jersey has opened its borders again, our new vicar, Rev Maureen Turner, and her husband, Derek, will be coming to Great Coxwell on Saturday afternoon (25th), staying until the following Wednesday, to sort out a few things at the vicarage, ready for their eventual move here in October. They have already sent over enough furniture, kitchen effects and food for them to be self-sufficient during their time here and will probably be quite busy, but I'm sure that if you see them around you will welcome them to the village. However, Maureen warns that she will be in jeans and tee-shirt, so not so readily identifiable as you might expect! I have already told them what a friendly village this is!
My name is Richard Ware and I live at Clover House in the Village.
I have been furloughed from work and have some time on my hands over the coming weeks.
If anyone has any 'odd jobs' they would like someone to assist with - gardening work, some painting or anything of that nature I am happy to help. Jobs priced accordingly.
If anyone has any questions then contact Richard on email at: email@example.com
See below some pictures of furniture we wish to dispose of before we move at the beginning of August.
They are all in reasonable condition and it seems a pity to put them on the tip.
My contact details as before Peggy Martin 01367 240499
The long unit is 11ft long but can be dismantled in sections and the head board is 7ft long. If you need more details let me know.
Kind Regards Peggy
Just to let you know that the current work on the Golf Course is in line with planning permissions.

COVID-19 Resilience plan Update
It has been some time since I have sent out an update, thankfully this has been due to things calming down.
I am pleased to attach a “Thank you” note from David Johnston MP, I would be grateful if you can pass this on to all in the support network that have been helping over the last >100 days.
With lockdown being eased across the country, we should stay vigilant. A lot of work is now being put into how to deal with any isolated outbreaks or deal with any “second wave”.
People are urged to not use play areas until they have passed safety checks and have signs to say they are safe to use again – please do not enter any play areas which are closed.
Important information about staying safe in our play areas
Once a play area is open, visitors will be urged to stay safe by following a few simple instructions which are being introduced to reduce the risk of people transmitting COVID-19.

Leisure centres update
As things stand, indoor gyms and swimming pools must remain closed and we are still waiting for the government to confirm the timetable for them to reopen. In the meantime, we are continuing to work on potential reopening plans to ensure we are ready once we’ve been given the go-ahead.
Over the coming days we will be placing new signs around our public toilets to remind people to maintain social distancing and to wash their hands. Our 'Stay Safe, Give Space' message will also be stencilled at key locations in our car parks, parks and mobile home parks.
You’ll find the signage designs attached to this email should you wish to use them around your own facilities.
As ever, any questions please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
Best wishes, and stay safe
