Have your say! Mayor set to host community meeting on the future of the well

THE Melksham community are invited to attend a meeting to discuss the Market Place well and how it should be commemorated.

Hosted by the Mayor of Melksham, cllr Adrienne Westbrook, the meeting will be an opportunity for locals to share fundraising ideas and to form a committee to drive plans forward.

The meeting has been arranged in response to strong public opinion that a permanent feature should be made of the historic well.

At the town council’s asset management meeting earlier in the month, cllr Westbrook said, “What I am suggesting is that as mayor I host and facilitate a meeting where we can get a group of residents together who are interested in moving forward and looking at a way of working with Wiltshire Council and try to find a way forward.

“It’s way outside the town council’s league in way of financing, but we can help be the catalyst that helps move this forward, or help with where to apply for grants and help with dealing with Wiltshire Council.”

Representatives from Wiltshire Council will also be in attendance to talk to the community.

Anyone with an interest is welcome to come to the  meeting on Tuesday 5th September from 7.30pm at the Town Hall.
