Work has begun on the Podium:
Councillors awarded the contract for the Podium Refurbishment work to C J Cook and Partners at a Council meeting on Thursday 2 August 2018. The company has been asked to commence work from Monday 24 September 2018 this will allow the annual Fair to visit in the first week in September. The work is expected to be finished by the end of October and well before Remembrance Sunday to allow for the Remembrance Sunday Service to take place on the Podium. During the work, the back row of car parking spaces will be closed as half the Market Square will be fenced off by the Contractors carrying out the work.
Whilst work is undertaken, the Market will temporarily relocate to the old library car park (near the Public Loos).

The HWRC is closed all day on Wednesdays throughout the year.
Over the last 12 months a number of improvements have been made to the HWRC to allow residents and traders to drop off their waste and recycling far quicker than in the past.
This includes having a dedicated lane for traders, removing them from residents dropping off household waste and recycling.
In order to improve queuing times at the site, residents are reminded that those using the recycling centre will need to show they are a resident of the borough before dropping off their waste.
For further information about the Household Waste Recycling Centre can be found at: www.swindon.gov.uk/hwrc
Residents can also plan their visits to the centre by using the link to the webcam which shows current queues at the site. The webcam, however, will be switched off on Wednesdays when the recycling centre is closed.
NORTHVIEW PLAY AREA UPDATE
The new equipment at Northview Park has now been installed and is proving to be very popular. The mobliss has been repaired, new bark put down and the timber outlining the park replaced. A new slide will be installed within the next few weeks along with two benches, one kindly donated by Highworth & District Lions.
