Be A Smarter Parker- Safe Parking Campaignhttps://haydonwick.gov.uk/wp-content/uploads/2022/04/Be-a-smarter-parker-resized-for-web.jpg12001200hw_youthandcommunityhw_youthandcommunityhttps://secure.gravatar.com/avatar/07018f6bca65cf968d220dbe19d54323?s=96&d=mm&r=g
Haydon Wick Parish Council receives regular correspondence regarding unsafe parking and as such we are launching a local campaign alongside Swindon Borough Council and North Swindon Police to raise awareness of safer parking. The Highway Code states that you shouldn’t park your car even partially on the pavement unless roadside signs permit you to do so.
It is extremely frustrating if pedestrians, pushchairs, or wheelchairs cannot pass by a parked car due to parking on a pavement or at a dropped curb. Along with the inconvenience caused on foot, there have been incidents in the past, where emergency vehicles have not been able to gain access to properties.
Please join us in raising awareness around the parish. Feel free to print our poster and display it at your property or business. It will be displayed in notice boards around the parish.
*** Update from Young at Heart Over 60’s Club ***https://haydonwick.gov.uk/wp-content/themes/movedo/images/empty/thumbnail.jpg150150hw_youthandcommunityhw_youthandcommunityhttps://secure.gravatar.com/avatar/07018f6bca65cf968d220dbe19d54323?s=96&d=mm&r=g
As we look towards the summer and hopefully some good weather, we are looking forwards this years outings and a holiday, as things are getting back to some kind of normality.
We had a small Easter Raffle with some chocolates and Easter Eggs as prizes. We also has an Easter bonnet competition, with prizes for the best three, but it was very difficult to choose as they were all very good; we have some very talented members.
Our first outing of the year was to Abergavenny for the day. It is a lovely market town with both indoor and outdoor markets, and has a good shopping centre. It is very easy to spend a large amount of money. After lunch we made our way to Leading Labels where we had a cup of tea and some lovely cake, and another chance to spend some money, as they had some lovely shops in there. It was so good to be able to get out and about.
Now we are looking forward to our holiday at Eastbourne, and our next outing to Windsor. Along with this we are also planning to celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, but more about those next time.

‘Haydon Wick Parish Council makes generous donation to the Disasters Emergency Committee’s Ukraine appeal’https://haydonwick.gov.uk/wp-content/uploads/2022/04/use-resized-for-web.jpeg19001200hw_youthandcommunityhw_youthandcommunityhttps://secure.gravatar.com/avatar/07018f6bca65cf968d220dbe19d54323?s=96&d=mm&r=g
Haydon Wick Parish Council have pledged to make a generous donation of £2,500.00 to the Disasters Emergency Committee’s Ukraine appeal and have praised the DEC’s “incredible” total which has topped £260 million (at time of writing), and £2,500.00 to The British Red Cross (Ukraine Crisis Appeal).
During the Full Council meeting in March, Haydon Wick Parish Councillors considered and discussed the benefits of donating money to local charities rather than sending supplies, as it is widely reported that the charities on the ground know first-hand what the people of Ukraine need and where to source it. It was considered that a monetary donation will also be of benefit due to the increased costs in fuel and food. Chairman Vinay Manro said that
‘I want to state that Haydon Wick Council condemns the unprovoked Russian invasion of Ukraine and stands in solidarity with the people of Ukraine and their families and friends, including those local to Swindon’.
In addition to the generous donation, Councillors have approved the use of the Council Office meeting room facilities to host a café style drop-in facility for newly arrived Ukrainian nationals. Councillor Ellen Baker Lee said that
‘Haydon Wick will be welcoming Ukrainian citizens in the coming months. Having been through much trauma, it occurred the Parish Council that they may be feeling quite isolated and homesick. We are currently developing a Ukrainian Café facility to assist with this. The café will enable people to meet and socialise in a safe environment. The idea is that we would run it in much the same way as our successful Memory Cafe. This idea is currently under discussion, and we will keep our residents posted’.
