Village Link is a Good Neighbour service entirely provided by volunteers. It is a registered charity which has been operating since 1993. Our drivers make nearly 1,000 trips a year, serving the following villages: 

Acton Turville, Alderton, Badminton, Biddestone, Burton, Castle Combe, Ford, Grittleton, Kington St Michael, Littleton Drew, Nettleton, North Wraxall, Slaughterford, West Kington and Yatton Keynell. 

Village Link needs more volunteer drivers to take on regular tasks such as  weekly shopping or luncheon club trips, and who are willing to be called on occasionally to take someone for a doctor’s or hospital appointment. 

All Village Link asks is for as much or little of your time as you feel you can give. We pay out of pocket expenses and a mileage allowance to covers driver’s costs. Why not contact us now on 07590 720836?

 Kington St Michael School Mobile 'Phones Appeal

Once again the school are collecting old mobile 'phones under the "Fones4Schools" recycling scheme.  Did you have a new mobile for Christmas?  If so, do you have an old mobile which you could donate? (It's not necessary to have the charger). Please pop old mobiles into the school Reception or hand in at the Post Office.  Thank you.



Have you lost a ring, piece of jewellery or tool in your garden, paddock or field?  Provided that you have permission to search for it from the land owner I am more than happy to come and assist using a metal detector which can mean the difference between success and failure.  Maybe you would just like to know if there is anything on your land.

Call on 01249 750102 and ask for Tim.

I am a member of The Federation of Independent Detectorists which means that I am covered by a £5,000,000 of public liability insurance.  All other members offer the same service and I can put you in touch with someone wherever you live in the UK.

Search contracts and accident waivers available.
