New Chairman Says Donhead St Mary Parish Will Freeze Its Council Tax Charge

John Feltham has been elected chairman of Donhead St Mary Parish Council. England’s third largest parish also takes in Ludwell and Charlton.

Councillors have voted not to increase their portion of the Wiltshire council tax or ‘precept’ next year.

The parish council receives income from the solar farm near Virginia Hayward and this cash will be used to fund any shortfall, rather than asking ratepayers for more money.

John tells Alfred about some of his priorities in the year ahead.
