************************


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.

Police and Crime Commissioner Election

19

August 2021
words and pictures to encourage voting

Wiltshire Council is urging people to not let their holiday plans or possible COVID self-isolation stop them from voting in the upcoming Police and Crime Commissioner election - with postal and proxy voting options available.

The election takes place on 19 August so it's likely that some people might be away, or self-isolating as a result of the pandemic.

If that's the case, then people can make sure they still have their say by applying for a postal vote or registering someone to vote on their behalf. There are some key dates to remember:

  • The deadline for Wiltshire Council to receive new postal vote applications is 5pm on 4 August.
  • For people wanting to appoint a proxy to vote on their behalf, the deadline for Wiltshire Council to receive these new proxy applications is 5pm on 11 August.
  • If anything occurs on polling day itself that prevents someone from getting out to vote, then the deadline for receipt of an emergency proxy application to Wiltshire Council is 5pm on 19 August.
  • If people want to vote they have to ensure they are on the electoral register by midnight on 3 August. Those who are already on the register do not need to re-register.

More information about the election can be found at Police and Crime Commissioner election.

More information about the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner for Wiltshire and Swindon can be found at Wiltshire PCC.
