Wiltshire Police Booklet - Herbert Protocol
Wiltshire police booklet called the Herbert Protocol is a booklet for persons who have a vulnerable adult in their household. It is designed to complete a profile of the person identified and to keep it handy in case the individual goes missing. The booklet then has appropriate details readily available for the police to have. Download a copy from the Useful Services Page
Mobile Library Service – Teffont
The (South Wilts) Mobile Library visits Teffont in the bus stop lay-by opposite Frith's Barn every four weeks on a Tuesday between 2.20 – 2.40pm
Mobile timetables can be viewed online at Link to Wiltshire.gov Mobile Library webpage
Membership to Wiltshire Libraries is free and the mobile stocks a range of novels and information books for adults and children including large print and audio books.
The mobile has full accessibility and is fitted with a customer lift.
The Teffont Trust has now been reorganised, the main changes being as follows:
- in order to simplify administration, the village’s John Lush Charity has been wound up and all its funds, amounting to £5,853.96, have been transferred to the TT
- there are three new TT Trustees, Charlotte Aspden and Zillah Faulkner, who have both been nominated by the Parish Council, and Andrew Jones, who represents the Village Hall Management Committee
- the bulk of the TT’s money has been set aside for the main object of the charity, which is “the restoration, repair, renewal, improvement and maintenance of the fabric of [the four community buildings in the village]” and
- the balance of the TT’s funds, including the money recently transferred to it by the John Lush Charity, is available for the other object of the TT, which is “other charitable purposes beneficial to the community of Teffont.”
The Trustees of the TT would be most grateful for any suggestions from the village as how this surplus TT money (ie the amount in excess of the buildings fund) might be spent, being something which has a charitable purpose and is “beneficial to the community”.
Suggestions should be sent to me please, before the end of April, when the TT Trustees will be having their next meeting.
Ladies Launch Anyone wanting a local walk can come along on the first Thursday of every month. We meet at 9.30am outside the village hall for a local walk - usually no more than a couple of hours (tops!) and finishing up with a cup of coffee somewhere.
