Welcome to the Lacock Parish Council Website
Wiltshire Link Schemes are voluntary groups which offer a transport and good neighbour service to local people who are in need, perhaps because they are elderly, disabled, isolated and lonely, single parents, or temporarily in need because of illness.
Due to Covid-19, local Link Schemes are experiencing a shortage of volunteers who are unable to drive due to age and/or vulnerability.
They desperately need more volunteers to support those in need of transport to and from their Covid-19 vaccination appointments. Volunteering your time could make a huge difference in supporting the national Covid-19 vaccine effort.
If you are able to help, please get in touch to find out more.

Have you signed up to Community Messaging?
Wiltshire Police use an email alert system called Community Messaging, also known as Neighbourhood Alert, across Wiltshire and Swindon to provide real time information to subscribing residents and businesses.
This is a free service and once subscribed you can choose what sort of alert to receive and how to receive them. This way the alerts will be tailored specifically to your interests and delivered by email, text or phone.
Community Messaging allows Wiltshire Police, and carefully selected partners, to help keep communities better informed about police and crime updates affecting their local area. The messages can even be sent to individual postcodes.
It should be emphasised that Community Messaging is not a way of reporting crimes – always call 999 in an emergency or 101 in a non-emergency situation. www.wiltsmessaging.co.uk
