A burglary was reported to us this week of a break-in in last Sunday. At the moment we can find no further details of this incident. But the suggestion has been made that further diligence should be exercised in your home security at thois time.

The links below will take you to the full stories around the whole site. Whilst you are with us, take a moment to browse some of the other pages.

From Last Years High Sheriff

Many of you will know that last year as High Sheriff I focused on raising awareness of domestic abuse on victims & their families in Wiltshire. With the help of many CB folk I also raised over £25,000 for a number of charities who support these victims. I am also Chair of Swindon Women’s Aid which provides refuge accommodation to 22 women & their families at any 1 time, as well as delivering a domestic abuse support service across the town.

Last Friday we opened our first charity shop “Survivor@SWA” in The Parade next door to Debenhams. We had a really brilliant first day of trading with lots of people through our doors.

We will now be looking to keep our shelves & rails full, so may I ask that you that you think of SWA if you are having a “Clear Out” –

  • Clothes - women's, men, children's , babies ( we are especially short of shoes)
  • Handbags & Purses
  • Hats
  • CDs, DVDs, Books
  • Toys & Puzzles
  • General small household items, including crockery, vases, bedding, towels, kitchen utensils etc.
  • Carrier bags & Hangers
  • Anything else that you think we might be able to sell

I am happy to collect from you, or you could drop off at Whisper Cottage. We are also looking for more volunteers to help us in the shop – we are open every day 10am – 4pm & people should be able to do a Shift (10-1, 1-4)
