What Our Community Say

As a resident of the Parish, it’s great to see some of the work you guys are doing in the community. Keep the good work up!

Craig Duff - Resident

As a volunteer litter picker, I have seen, first hand, the tremendous work that the Parish Council of Haydon Wick do to make living in the area such a pleasure.

They have also been a key partner and supporter in the introduction of Swindon’s second parkrun within the area, and I am proud to be involved with them on this project.

Phil Jefferies - Volunteer

I have really enjoyed working with Haydon Wick Parish Council in the last few years, and I have found them to be very community orientated, and they truly take care for their parishioners, whatever age.

One of the community art work projects I was involved with was the 100 year anniversary WW1 external building hoarding art works. The project created a very positive reaction, especially on social media. This year I also completed a banner for Remembrance Day, that became part of a Parish Council exhibition. I often wish I lived in the Parish when I see the pensioner presents lined up at Christmas. Well done everyone, you are a credit to the Parish!

Marilyn Trew - Community Artist

To everyone at Haydon Wick Parish Council, I would like to thank you for the Christmas Parcel which, as always, was full of useful items. Also, an opportunity to thank you for organising volunteers for those of us shielding during lockdown. I was immensely grateful to have hospital prescriptions delivered to the pharmacy and to have letters and cards taken to the post box. My request for help was always dealt with quickly, with cheerfulness and, on one occasion in very heavy rain! Haydon Wick is a lovely place to live.
