CORONAVIRUS

ARE YOU SELF-ISOLATING AND NEED HELP?

A number of villagers have very kindly come forward and offered to coordinate volunteers, who are prepared to support those self-isolating who are vulnerable, shielding, have symptoms or have been diagnosed, or someone in their family has symptoms or has been diagnosed.

If any of the above circumstances apply to you and you need help locally with essential shopping, collecting medicines etc., or would value just having someone to talk to, please contact the local Covid-19 Volunteer coordinators using the numbers below.

This is not an alternative to the NHS, emergency services or social services. It is simply neighbours and local residents looking out for each other.

BONFIRES

Please do not have any bonfires whilst the coronavirus controls are in place.  Protect others and your own health.  Protect the NHS.  Smoke can be potentially harmful to our vulnerable residents or those suffering from or recovering from Covid-19 and may affect their ability to breathe.  Dorset & Wiltshire Fire and Rescue Service have had many calls to fires that have turned out to be bonfires.  Their resources are required elsewhere.  Thank you for your consideration.  (Wilts Council Smoke Nuisance Covid-19)

Market Lavington is a large, friendly and thriving village on the northern slopes of Salisbury Plain, situated about five miles south of Devizes. Market Lavington has always been a lively community, and for centuries was one of Wiltshire's foremost market towns, having been granted a royal charter in 1252 by Henry III.

Although it has all the character and charm of a traditional Wiltshire village, and is set in the midst of beautiful countryside, Market Lavington has always been a working community. Today its facilities include a Co-op supermarket, chemist, butcher, and post office, two hairdressers, a pub & restaurant with accommodation, cafe, takeaways and a number of small businesses, so you can buy almost anything you need in the village. We also have a pre-school, a primary school and a secondary school (all rated good, by OFSTED), a doctors' surgery, a library, a community hall, Old School Hall and our very own Village Museum!

The parish lies at the foot of the north western scarp slope of Salisbury Plain. It originally contained Easterton, now a separate civil parish, and Gore, now in West Lavington. The parish is long and narrow with Gault clay in the north, rising to a ridge of Upper Greensand at about 96 metres at Ledge Hill. This ridge is known as the Sands and was common land for many centuries. In the 18th century its light fertile soil provided suitable land for commercial orchards and market gardening. Half the parish is on the chalk uplands (military area) that rises to about 200m on Lavington Hill.
