Hedgehog Campaign

“Are you looking for a project to do with your children in the garden over the summer? Sustainable Warminster can help! How about making your garden “Hedgehog Friendly” with one of our Hedgehog Highway signs, and a leaflet with lots of hints and tips about what to do to encourage hedgehogs to visit?

We have a supply of Hedgehog Highway signs and leaflets kindly funded by Warminster Town Council to give away to Sustainable Warminster members, friends and family. Please comment below if you would like one, and we’ll arrange for one to be made available to you.”

Council Grass Cutting

Sustainable Warminster would like to clarify our position with regard to grass cutting in Warminster.

The Town Council’s Environmental Services Working Group was set up on Monday 15th June and has yet to meet to draft policies relating to grass cutting.

Any uncut areas of grass are therefore due to the Wiltshire County wildflower trials (a decision taken last year without our knowledge) or as a result of understaffing due to the pandemic.

Sustainable Warminster is a community group composed of unelected volunteers.  Any complaints about grass cutting should be directed to Wiltshire Council or Warminster Town Council.

All councils have been badly affected by the pandemic, with staff shortages due to illness or sheltering, and an extra unanticipated workload. Please bear this in mind before you complain to either council if you have been affected by the lack of or lateness of grass cutting.
