April’s Village Magazine

With the increased requirements for social distancing the village magazine committee has had to make the sad decision to not deliver physical copies of April’s edition. We realise this will limit the number of people that can read this edition but to keep both the residents and the wonderful group who deliver the magazine safe it was the only realistic option.

The link to the edition can be found here. The magazine committee will be reaching out to other village organisations to share this news and link to their members.

Look after yourself this winter

As the dark nights draw in across Wiltshire and winter really starts to bite, it’s worth thinking about how we can all make sure we’re looking after ourselves and staying well over the cold winter months.

The NHS recently launched its annual winter campaign – Help Us Help You– which is here to help make it easier to understand the things you can do.

We all know hospitals and surgeries can be especially busy during the winter months and it can often be tricky to know the best place to go for help, so here’s some handy tips to see you through until spring:
1. It’s not too late to get your flu jab
The free flu vaccination is offered to those who are at increased risk from the effects of flu, including people aged 65 and over, pregnant women, those with underlying health conditions and children aged 2-10. If you’ve not had one yet, it’s not too late.

2. Call 111 or visit online
If you’re unsure where to go and think you need urgent medical attention, but it’s not life-threatening, contacting NHS 111 can help you make sure you reach the most suitable NHS service for your needs.

3. Ask a pharmacist for advice before minor ailments or winter illnesses get worse
Community pharmacists are qualified healthcare professionals who can offer clinical advice and over the counter medicines to safely manage things like coughs, colds and sore throats.
It’s quick and convenient to see a pharmacist– you don’t need to book an appointment and can often be seen in a private consultation room.

4. See your GP in the evening or weekend if you can’t see them during the day
If you need to see a GP but find it hard to find the time during routine hours, appointments with a GP, nurse or other healthcare professionals are often available in the evenings and at weekends through many local practices or other local NHS services.
