Update from Voneus

Dear Stanton St Quintin Householders

We are pleased to announce that we have now secured the strategic elements in the network, with the exception of one property in Newbourne Gardens. to commence go live of Superfast Broadband. (Available to all).

The network team, will be in Stanton St Quintin, Monday 22nd to build the final pieces, to commence go live of Voneus Superfast Broadband (available to all dependant on line of sight).

With the infrastructure in place we will then commence beaming the fibre from Minety Water Tower. Remembering that Voneus deliver fixed wireless broadband wirelessly, we will be delivering superfast speeds into your homes.

It is with some surprise, that to date we have only received just 13 homes from the 40 homes required to build this project. We are attempting to engage with local councillors to assist in communicating to their hamlets and villagers that they too could be receiving our service, Hullavington being the most local.

We are engaging also, with the Family liaison Officer for the barracks and are trying to understand how we can create a solution for those wanting our service.

When we reach 40 homes, we will also deliver superfast broadband to the village hall, free of charge as part of our commitment to the community.

To understand more or should you have any questions please contact Gary Day gary.day@voneus.com or sales@voneus.com.

I will be in the village this coming Friday morning and happy to meet in person or take any questions should you wish.

We thank you for your support in allowing Voneus to deliver Superfast Broadband into Stanton St Quintin.

The Stanton St Quintin Parish Council have sponsored your Neighbourhood Plan Steering Committee who have been busy on your behalf.  To date they have:


  • Agreed a Steering Group Constitution on how to work together on behalf of our community

  • Agreed a Vision for this village at the centre of our Neighbourhood Plan (see in red below)

  • Registered our intention to produce our Neighbourhood Plan with Wiltshire County Council

  • Begun preparatory work to consult YOU (the community) at a consultation to be held in September

  • Identified potential external funding to meet our Neighbourhood Plan development expenses 

  • Evaluated potential external consultants to advise on specialist planning matters 


Our aim is to retain our village’s rural character, whilst acknowledging that there is a need to provide controlled local housing and employment for the community. We therefore need your views to develop a plan that ensures potential developers have a clear understanding of our unified position on how we want our village to look in the next 20 years. 


Our vision is that The Stanton St. Quintin community wishes to develop a forward-looking approach to residential development which preserves the rural attractiveness of the village and sensitively crafts and shapes the community over time for the benefit of its inhabitants’.


We are also calling for volunteers with specialist skills (for example photography or website creation) to help us on an ad hoc basis. If interested please contact Hilary Greene 01666 837850 iamhilarygreene@gmail.com


Also, if you are not signed up to the Village Chatter, then please email your name, address and email address to sstqpc@gmail.com as this will be one of the means of updating you.


Emergency Plan

Dear Fellow Resident,


Stanton St Quintin Community Emergency Plan


Stanton St Quintin Parish Council is preparing an Emergency Plan so that as a community we can immediately help ourselves if something were to happen in our Parish.


We are asking for volunteers to help finalise the Emergency Plan ready for deployment and to prepare our community for an emergency.


Would you be willing to help during an emergency?  Do you have any particular skills or equipment or know somebody who has, that you think might be of use?  Do you belong to a community group that might be able to help during an emergency, such as luncheon groups or crèches? Do you know vulnerable people in the community who will need extra help in an emergency?


If you want to be part of the team who, from later in the summer/early autumn, will prepare our community for an emergency then please email me via stantonstquintin@gmail.com and I will be in touch.


Thank you




John Seale

Chair of the Neighbourhood Plan Steering Group & Parish Councillor

A Neighbourhood Plan for Stanton St Quintin – Meeting held on 9th February 2017 at 7.30pm in the Parish Hall

Notes of the meeting

Present: Nick Greene, Chair of Stanton St Quintin Parish Council

               Howard Greenman, Wiltshire County Councillor

Attending: John Eley, Emma Walker, Roger Starling, Graeme Pattison, Ros Whiting, George Fenton, Stephanie Fenton, Brig Mike Smith, Jonathan Squire, Carol Squire, Elspeth Schwenk, John Seale, Paul Craven, Mark Pickavance, Jackie Pickavance, Janice Killinger

Apologies: Dr Wendy Bowring, Paul Woloschuk, Mervyn & Sue Stephens, Martin & Gabriele Horton, David Parnell, Rosalind Brown, Pat & Peter Harper, Marjorie Morgan, Hilary Greene


Nick Greene introduced the meeting, setting out the format of the evening and drawing peoples’ attention to the apologies he had received from interested villagers who for a variety of reasons could not attend this meeting but wanted to offer their support.

He emphasised how fortunate our village was to have excellent support from the Hullavington Neighbourhood Plan committee. A lot of their experience so far in drawing up their plan, lessons learned, things to avoid, shortcuts etc will be invaluable as Stanton St Quintin begin their NP.

He reiterated Hullavington's NP Chair Graham Slaymaker's advice about Keeping It Simple and recommended the attachment sent with the minutes of the previous meeting on 19th January, the Locality's guide to "keeping your neighbourhood plan simple, short and straightforward" by Tony Burton.

He also recommended a workshop to be run by Wiltshire Community Land Trust at the Cause in Chippenham from 5:30 pm to 8:00pm on 23rd February 2017 offering a "special opportunity to find out more about shaping the future of your local town or village, especially through Neighbourhood Development Plans & community -led housing initiatives".

He welcomed & introduced Howard Greenman to explain why the village should have a Neighbourhood Plan and thanked him for attending this meeting after a very hard day at County.

Howard Greenman outlined the importance of a Neighbourhood Plan. He said it is not a negative document, saying what should not happen, but it allows the village to craft and shape the community. He had previously thought that Stanton did not need a NP because it is a small village, but has changed his recommendation because of the airfield developments, other developments, especially a particular application on Avils Lane recently which made him aware that there were pockets of land in the village that a developer might take advantage of. He also drew attention to the ‘Chippenham gateway’ at Junction 17 of the M4 – this development of the SE quartile almost certainly means that the other quartiles will be looked at soon. So the village should explore a NP. It will be hard work but a rewarding project. He also mentioned that Seagry, a small village, is producing a Neighbourhood Plan.

Howard added that one of the meetings he had attended earlier in the day concerned a massive redevelopment of Chippenham Railway Station & its surrounding environment.

With modernisation & the electrification of the line to London, journey times would be significantly shorter making Chippenham & its surrounding villages an even more attractive place to live & consequently more attractive to Developers.

Developers were learning to have a healthy respect for villages with their own Neighbourhood Plans as outlined by Kevin Watson of Christian Malford at our last meeting where he spoke of a large developer withdrawing its plans for over development when faced with opposition from the NDP.

Nick Greene thanked Howard for his comments & all those present again for their attendance. He explained that development of a NP was not a Parish Council project but needed volunteers from the village. He requested that those interested in becoming involved to identify themselves & their details were noted by Councillor John Eley of Chapel House Lower SSQ who had volunteered to be the Parish Council's representative on the Neighbourhood Plan Committee. It was agreed that the next meeting would take place on Monday 13th February at 7.30pm where a Chair, Secretary & Treasurer would be appointed.

Mrs Elspeth Schwenk very kindly offered her house, Long Barn, Lower SSQ as the meeting venue

Nick gave Mrs Emma Walker a list of all the apologies along with their comments & offers of support.

Nick thanked all those attending and those offering their services to the development of a Neighbourhood Plan.

The meeting ended at 8.45pm.

A Neighbourhood Plan for Stanton St Quintin – Meeting held on 19th January 2016 in the Parish Hall

Notes of the meeting

Present: Nick Greene, Chair of Stanton St Quintin Parish Council

            Howard Greenman, Wiltshire County Councillor

            Over 60 members in the audience


Nick Greene introduced the meeting, setting out the format of the evening and drawing peoples’ attention to the great improvements to the hall. He thanked the Hall Committee members especially the Chair Cara Voelcker and the project manager Peter Boggis.

He welcomed members of the Hullavington Neighbourhood Plan committee to the meeting and thanked them for attending.

He introduced Howard Greenman to explain why the village should have a Neighbourhood Plan and to introduce Kevin Watson from Christian Malford.

Howard Greenman outlined the importance of a Neighbourhood Plan. He said it is not a negative document, saying what should not happen, but it allows the village to craft and shape the community. He had previously thought that Stanton did not need a NP because it is a small village, but has changed his recommendation because of the airfield developments, other developments, especially a particular application on Avils Lane recently which made him aware that there were pockets of land in the village that a developer might take advantage of. He also drew attention to the ‘Chippenham gateway’ at Junction 17 of the M4 – this development of the SE quartile almost certainly means that the other quartiles will be looked at soon. So the village should explore a NP. It will be hard work but a rewarding project. He also mentioned that Seagry, a small village, is producing a Neighbourhood Plan.

Christian Malford are well underway with their NP. Kevin Watson has headed up the committee developing it. Howard said that Kevin has 2 particular attributes which have helped – tenacity and the ability to cut to the chase. We need to encourage people to come forward to form a team to develop the plan.

Christian Malford

Kevin Watson explained that they were not quite there but a long way along the process. During the work a couple of big developers have been scared away from plans for large scale development in the village.

They started in 2014 following talk of a housing development of 200 homes which influenced the start of the Neighbourhood Planning. There were also people living in the village who were offering pieces of land to Wiltshire Council for development.

There were three basic questions which needed to be answered: what do we have? What do we need? How do we get there?

Jan 14 Started with the formation of a Neighbourhood Planning Team

Mar 14 undertook a housing survey establishing the number and type of housing in the village

June 14           a parish wide survey questionnaire. This was delivered by hand to all houses in the village and collected by hand – there was some difficulty persuading some people to complete the survey. This got the response rate up from 20% to 50% which is reckoned to be a good response for a survey of this type.

Aug 14 Parish boundary was defined as the NP area – this is a formal approval process

Sept 14            First Parish meeting – development of a NP requires demonstration of consultation with all residents

Oct 14 Main Road meeting – this recognised that the favoured area for development is along the main road in Christian Malford. By now the plan was being formulated

Mar 15 2nd parish meeting. The NP Team delivered messages about developing or not developing particular areas – some people were pleased, others not.

May 15 the agreed draft plan was rejected by Wiltshire Council – they hadn’t told Christian Malford about a key step they had to take during the development of the plan.

Between May 15 and Sept 16 the plan went from version 6 to version 22. They didn’t find Wiltshire Council very helpful; the latter themselves seemed to be on a learning curve and would agree sections then later on reject them.

Sept 16 – initial consultation.

The process involves lots of meetings and hours of personal time which is necessary to feed information back to the village residents and obtain their views, thereby demonstrating to Wiltshire Council that proper consultation has taken place.

Still to do

They wondered about getting a consultant but as they were so far down the road, decided not to.

The 2nd written consultation produced 50 written responses, mostly supportive. Taking account of comments, the NP is reissued and submitted to Wiltshire Council who will send it out to various organisations for their comments. Then an external inspector will formally assess the plan. Once this has completed successfully, Wiltshire Council will organise a referendum in the village (like an election); the plan will be agreed if a simple majority of those voting is in favour. The NP Team are hoping to complete the process before the end of 2017.

Lessons learned

It is worth doing. Christian Malford has a common view of how the village should develop. It should enable steady progress. The plan is deliverable. A major builder has withdrawn from a development in the village (a moral victory). The plan recognises that Christian Malford does have to grow; it is not an option to reject all development.

It isn’t easy to develop the plan. It needs a big commitment from team members – CM had 7 in the team, Hullavington has 18, with a core team of 8 – it is good to have the larger number. Wiltshire Council seems under resourced to support the process. It is difficult to get people engaged and you can’t please all the people all the time so they are left with a minority of disgruntled people.

There is a lot to do to develop the plan. Need to assemble a strong team – CM was under resourced really; you need enthusiasm as much as a skill. They underestimated the time and effort required. They would have liked a website but couldn’t get the support to maintain one. They were helped by great mapping access from one of the members. There is funding to support the process – from Community First who will pass funds via the Parish Council.

CM has 250 houses and about 700 residents. The plan allows for about 30 new houses. In response to a question about the status of the NP, Kevin replied that it has a legal status and is the top tier of consideration for the planners when applications are being considered. CM spent about £500 on the development of their plan. If the CM team were to embark on this task again, it would ask for more Community First funding in order to employ specialist help during the process.


Graeme Slaymaker from the Hullavington NP committee updated the meeting on progress with their NP. He said they are just about to start writing the plan. The more people involved the quicker you get there. There is a lot of information available from the My Community – locality website. He particularly recommended a document ‘Keep it Simple’.

They hope to have their draft plan by the end of June. They are holding an Open Day on 18th February to feedback information from their questionnaire. Hullavington has taken on a consultant to help. The best way forward is to have a core membership with others to help out. It is good to have someone on board who is good at reading policies etc. Hullavington has a core of 8 people.

Key steps

  • Get a vision for the village
  • Scope it out
  • Develop a budget

  • Claim grant – John Smith from Hullavington supplied the following information. The maximum you can claim is £9000 during the course of the plan. Only 2 applications are allowed and if you don’t spend the money in time, it has to be given back.

Q: how are sites identified?

Graeme: basically they have already been identified by people coming forward and offering land for development.

Although the Core Strategy may say what the minimum number of houses required in a village is, it isn’t necessarily true.

Q: what about the dynamic of the MoD land?

Graeme: it is included in their NP boundary. The airfield is in Stanton St Quintin Parish, Hullavington Parish and St Pauls Malmesbury Without – the bit that has already been sold is in St Pauls Malmesbury Without and is in their NP.

Nick Greene thanked all those present especially Howard, Kevin and Graeme. He explained that development of a NP was not a Parish Council project but needed volunteers from the village. He requested that those interested in becoming involved provide their details and a further meeting will be organised to get the process kicked off. (These details will be added to those collected at the November Parish Council meeting when Hullavington PC gave a presentation).

WAAF Memorial Window Appeal for Support.

The Women's Auxiliary Air Force was founded in June 1939 to free RAF personnel for front line duties in World War Two. By 1943 the WAAF numbered 182,000.

100 other ranks of the WAAF were billeted at Stanton Court, Stanton St Quintin adjacent to St Giles Church. Many others were billeted in the village during the war. These women worked at RAF Hullavington. They undertook a variety of roles including radio operators, cooks, drivers and flight mechanics. They also made a significant positive impact on the village.

Currently there are few memorials to commemorate the WAAF. There is one at the National Memorial Arboretum in Staffordshire, another at the Yorkshire Museum, and a re-creation of the RAF Filter Room at Bentley Priory. In recognition of the service given by the other ranks of the WAAF billeted in Stanton St Quintin during World War Two, a stained glass window is being commissioned in St Giles Church.

Your support for this project will be greatly appreciated.



The Parish Council, which met on 14th March 2017 were very happy to support this Appeal & have given £100 from its Contingency Fund towards the Window.

The enterprising Chippenham Pit Stop team are busy expanding  their truckers' shop into a new convenience store to serve both passing trade and all the surrounding villages from September 14.

The Pit Stop made recent headlines when a new outside gymnasium was installed to give their driver customers an onsite opportunity of keeping fit as part of a campaign to make the facility the best of its kind in the UK.

Now the Silvey family, who own and operate the Pit Stop just off junction 17 of the M4, are completely transforming their existing shop into a full convenience store as part of a £130,000 general improvement programme.

Managing Director David Hatherell said the greatly enhanced shop would offer locally sourced produce and freshly baked breads as well as staples such a milk and a whole range of other convenience items.

"With our extensive parking, excellent restaurant open to all and on site barber's shop we are ideally placed to play a much greater role in serving the local community," he said.

"While our  truck driver customers remain our core business we have ample scope to expand our services to meet the needs of local people," said Mr Hatherell.

Alternative shopping and dining arrangements were now in place while the work was progressing so it was very much business as usual, he said.

Nick Greene as Chairman of SSQ Parish Council cut the ribbon to declare the newly enhanced facility open at 11:30am on Saturday 12th September 2015.

Truckers and local community customers of The Chippenham Pit Stop will be 'seeing purple' if they call in on Tuesday May 16.

For that's the striking colour chosen by the UK's Stroke Association as part of their May special awareness raising month.

Now members of the Pit Sop crew wearing a splash of purple will be giving out information leaflets and there will be cupcakes with purple icing and even purple smoothies on sale in the restaurant.

Pit Stop Health Coordinator and former nurse Lisa Hatherell said spending long hours sitting behind a wheel all day and every day was not conducive to a healthy life style.

"The risk of a stroke approximately doubles for each decade of life from aged 55 and the UK's truckers are already an ageing generation because with all its disadvantages most young people are not interested in being truckers anymore," she said.

"Our leaflet provides tips on how to avoid becoming a stroke victim and is part of our on-going drive to offer our customers the opportunity of living more healthy lifestyles," said Lisa.

The Pit Stop was already doing its bit by providing an outside exercise gym, offering customers more healthy eating options in their restaurant and using healthier cooking processes, she said.

Flood Risk
Wiltshire Council often approaches landowners to request them to clear overgrown ditches and watercourses where there is risk of flooding. However, with extensive networks of watercourses & ditches in the County, local Parish Councils have been able to provide valuable assistance in identifying & helping to resolve these issues in many cases. Villagers who have concerns or observations to make regarding flooding or potential flooding are asked to contact any member of the Parish Council. All our contact details can be found by clicking on "Directory" on the Sidebar.

Interesting Village Records
The following has just been received via stantonstquintin@gmail.com

Hi there. My name is Colin Batten the son of Violet Batten(nee Tanner). My Grandfather Worthy Tanner and later his two sons Eric and Henry (my mothers brothers) farmed at Manor Farm and lived at 68 Greenhill, Stanton St Quintin for many years. I have come across many details regarding various sales of the farm and accounts,wages sheets etc from approx 1910-1979. Whilst they are of great interest to me I wondered if anyone in Stanton or indeed the current owners of the farm would be interested in seeing them.

Colin can be contacted by email at colinbatten@btinternet.com

Interestingly, it was Worthy Tanner who both gave the village the land & helped pay for the erection of our Church Hall.

 MyView from the Woodland Trust
The Woodland Trust recently launched an initiative to double native woodland cover under the banner of More Trees, More Good. Part of this initiative includes mass public consultation about where more trees should be planted through a campaign called MyView.

MyView is a web-enabled system that allows people to take a photo of their local view that would benefit from more trees and load it onto the Woodland Trust website. People can then use our interactive, click and drag design programme to plant virtual trees and create a new 'treed' view for their community. It will enable people to visually demonstrate where they would like to see more trees and then allows them to create a written statement about why more trees in this space are important. Please have a look at:

If you would like to view the Minutes of our previous Parish Council Meetings just click on the box below & then click on "Download" & finally "Open" to see these. They should then open in your "Word" programme. As always, if you experience any problems with this or any other aspects of this website please let us know at:
Recent Changes
Have a look also at the "Useful Links" on the Sidebar which will take you straight to The School, The Church, Wiltshire County Council, The Police etc.
Please also have a look at the "Have Your Say" link on the Sidebar. If you click on this it should open your email programme with stantonstquintin@gmail.com in the To: Address Bar. Please let us know what you think of our village site & any thoughts, issues, problems you have concerning our village. I will check for new email daily & either answer myself or direct your email to the more relevant person on the Parish Council. We'd love to hear from you!
The above advice works fine if you're using an email programme like Outlook, Outlook Express or Windows Mail. However, if you use web based email like Hotmail or Yahoo you may need to actually type the address into the To: box. Please let us know if you experience any problems.

Do you see the map at the bottom of the page? If you click firstly on "SAT" & then on the "+" sign, you can keep zooming in until you can see your own house. Great Fun!
