Seend Parish Council


Inspection of the Accounts

As per our Governance and Accounting regulations, members of the Parish can inspect the 2019-20Financial Accounts.    The dates set for the period for the exercise of public rights are:  Monday 20th July to Friday 29th August.   Anyone wishing to take up this right should please contact the Clerk on 07706 850859 or email: [email protected] or [email protected]   We can then arrange a suitable time and place for you to look at the accounts file.    All Accounting and Governance statements, including our Internal Auditor’s report can be found on the  accounts page of this website.





With the rapid spread of Coronovirus that is going to accelerate in the coming weeks, we as a community will need to think about the more vulnerable in our parish and how we can support those who may be on their own and may need extra help if they become ill.  So please check in on any vulnerable family, friends and neighbours.  Sometimes just helping them with their shopping and checking they have everything they need can make a big difference.  If you know someone who is self-isolating, contact them by phone or text to check that they are ok.   If you are self-isolating yourself and are on your own, please make sure you have let family, friends or neighbours know so they can offer help if needed.   But please follow the health guidelines in order to protect yourselves and prevent the spread of the virus.


Wiltshire Council has produced a COVID-19 Community Pack which contains useful contact numbers and websites for advice, etc.  Please click on this link.









If you are self isolating, you are not alone.  There is a number to call if you need help.

Wiltshire Police Rural Crime Survey 2020 Is Now Open





Dear all,


The Wiltshire Police Rural Crime Survey 2020 is now open.


To complete the survey, please click below. The survey closes at Noon on Monday 7 September 2020.



As the tactical lead for rural crime at Wiltshire Police, I welcome your views in relation to the concerns that you, the rural community, have.


The results of this survey will allow us to identify crime prevention initiatives, help us educate officers and staff on what matters most to the rural community, and support me to effectively use my resources to deliver intelligence led policing.


I am pleased to update you that the new Wiltshire Rural Crime Team will be launched in September. I hope this commitment reassures you how seriously the Force and Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner take rural crime in our county. In October we will also be rejuvenating the Rural Crime Partnership and I look forward to working closely alongside our partners on this.


Thank you for taking the time to complete this survey, it shouldn't take longer than 10 minutes.


Inspector Liz Coles
