COVID-19 UPDATE – Thursday 26 March 2020

Good evening

I am writing to provide you with the latest update regarding COVID-19.

Our teams and partners continue to work around the clock to adapt and deliver key services affected by the ongoing COVID-19 situation in accordance with Government plans and guidance. We are so grateful for the commitment of our staff as they work to support our communities in Wiltshire, and to our communities as they work to support each other.

There are a lot of folks in and around the Village offering help and assistance which is great to see – thank you.

You have also had flyers through from Andy Earle and the Pewsey Community Coronavirus Assistance.

Below is an article due in the next edition of the Courier which has an update from the Everleigh Parish Council.

If any folks need assistance working from home on the IT Front etc give me a shout over at Hightrees

Cheers, Simon – Webmaster

There is plenty of advice and information on the current Coronavirus threat in the media, and the situation is constantly being updated.  Our recently issued Village Emergency Plan provides contact details for the Parish Council and the NHS, for those in need of help.  If you do need help or are able to support those who need assistance during self isolation, eg for shopping, then please let me know. (Contact details are above).

A village Litter Pick took place on Saturday 7th March.  Many thanks go to the 11 volunteers who took part and collected 18 bags of rubbish.  Everleigh is certainly looking a lot cleaner as a result.

Our next event will be a village work party on Saturday 18th April from 9.30am until lunchtime to conduct general maintenance and tidying up at the playground; please bring paint brushes and strimmers if you have them.  We are very proud of our playground which remains a key village asset developed over many years, so let’s look after it.

Our annual Tea Party at St Peter’s Church, planned for Friday 8th May to commemorate the 75th anniversary of Victory in Europe (VE) Day, has been cancelled due to the coronavirus situation. A decision on the Village Summer Party due to take place on Saturday 11th July will be promulgated by the Parish Council in due course. 

It is with great sadness that we report the death of David Beaton on the 26th February.  David contributed a great deal to our local community and served with distinction as the Chairman of the Everleigh Parish Council until January 2010.  His funeral service took place on Thursday 12th March at St Andrew’s Church, Collingbourne Ducis, and was attended by many of his family and friends.

There is still one vacancy on the Parish Council.  No special skills are required, just a willingness to represent and promote the interests of the village. Interested volunteers are asked to contact Phil Gill, the Parish Clerk:  Tel 01264 398534; e-mail

Finally, the next Parish Council meeting will take place on Tuesday 5th May at 7pm at the Collingbourne Ducis Primary School. There will be two sessions: the Annual Parish Meeting and the Annual meeting of the Parish Council. Everyone is welcome to attend. The minutes of our last meeting are available on village noticeboards and the Everleigh web site at

Everleigh Emergency Response Plan




Ruspers, The Street, Everleigh, Marlborough, Wiltshire SN8 3EY

Tel 01264 852731 e-mail:

Dear Everleigh Residents,


All major emergencies will be dealt with by the emergency services, local authorities, utilities and voluntary agencies in a combined response. The Everleigh Village Emergency Plan is not intended to be a substitute for these services and, on an emergency situation arising, the first action should always be to contact the emergency services by dialling 999.

The purpose of our plan is to cater for extreme circumstances (for example heavy snowfall) that might prevent the emergency services from reaching the scene immediately. In such cases the initial response may rely entirely on Everleigh residents. To co-ordinate such activity, we have created the Everleigh Parish Council Emergency Aide Memoire. You may wish to keep this document somewhere handy (by the phone). You may also wish to keep your personal and medical details in a convenient location in case they are required in an emergency.

Seperately, published on the village web site ( is the Everleigh Winter Emergency Response Plan (EWERP) which contains more detailed planning particularly in respect of heavy snow.

We are not aware of any particular hazards in the area and our location means that we are safe from flooding. However, in the event of extreme snow, a prolonged loss of power, a serious traffic incident or other emergency local people may be required to provide an initial level of support. Two Parish Councillors have become Emergency Co-ordinators. The intent is to create a list of villagers who would be prepared to assist in:

  • Access clearing: people skilled in the use of and in possession of chain saws,

tractors, snow clearing equipment and 4 wheeled drive vehicles.

  • Medical aid: people either with a medical qualification or basic first aid.
  • Welfare: people to assist those who require comfort and support.

If you feel you would be able to assist or have experience of dealing with real emergency situations then please contact the Parish Council.
