Article for June Messenger

Pewsey Parish Council

I would like to introduce myself as the newly elected Chair of the Parish Council, taking over the role from the retired Curly Haskell, who I would personally like to thank for his service to the village over many years.  I have been a member of the council for several years, where I have been Vice Chair of the Environment Committee as well as being responsible for monitoring the Automatic External Defibrillators that we have situated around the village.  I have lived in Pewsey for 11 years with my wife Suzanne and Labrador Luna.

My wife and I will be joining in with the Queen’s Jubilee Celebrations around the village. On Thursday 2nd June the Jubilee beacon will be lit at 9.45pm at Pewsey Hill Farm.  A massive thank to the Bowerman Family at Pewsey Hill Farm for building the beacon and for allowing it to be on their land.  On Friday, 3rdJune, we will be heading down to The Coopers.  Please feel free to come and introduce yourself. 

David McGarry, Chair of Pewsey Parish Council
