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.

Get prepared for Census 2021

National

January 2021
Woman in purple in dress shirt

The census is a survey that happens every 10 years and gives the Government a picture of all the people and households in England and Wales. The census is unique. There’s simply nothing else that gives so much detail about us and the society we live in.

All kinds of organisations, from local authorities to charities, use the information to help provide the services we all need, including transport, education and healthcare. Without the census, it would be much more difficult to do this.

By taking part, you’ll be helping make sure you and your community get the services needed now and in the future.

Census 2021 will be the first digital-first census. It’s easy to do and can be done on any device. You’ll get an access code from us at the Office for National Statistics. Simply go online and enter the code into our secure website to get started. We’ll be in contact nearer the time to let you know what you need to do.

Major incident declared by Wiltshire and Swindon Local Resilience Forum (LRF)

Swindon & Wiltshire

08

January 2021
Stay At Home warning

Our communities in Wiltshire and Swindon are being urged to continue adhering to the COVID19 restrictions during the current national lockdown.

Due to the announcement of a third period of national restrictions amid rising COVID19 infection rates in the county, a major incident has been declared by the Wiltshire and Swindon Local Resilience Forum (LRF).

The declaration of a major incident simply ensures that all partner agencies - including local authorities, police, ambulance service, fire and local NHS services - can work more effectively and efficiently together when facing a likely rise in demand.

The relationships between agencies within the partnership have never been stronger due to the challenging nature of the last few years in the county.

The public should be reassured that each agency is doing everything they can to protect the most vulnerable in our society and help stop the spread of the virus.

Chair of the LRF, Wiltshire Police Chief Constable Kier Pritchard said: "There is no escaping the fact that the last ten months or so have been incredibly difficult for everyone and we now find ourselves in another period of national lockdown.

"We have developed outstanding relationships between our key partner agencies in the county and we all continue to support one another each day with one simple aim; to do all we can to protect our communities.

"Whether this is, for example, through my police officers engaging with the public to ensure they understand the current rules, council staff working tirelessly to support those most vulnerable in our community or our colleagues within the NHS who continue to do an incredible job caring for us all.

"I know that we are all feeling overwhelmed with information and fatigued by the restrictions which continue to limit what we can and cannot do - but we all must remember that our actions can have a real impact in ending this pandemic.

"The Government and scientists have been clear - we must all stay home, protect the NHS and save lives.
