St John's Opens for Private Prayers

Minal-16

CHURCHES in Marlborough are now open for private prayer. 

They are St Mary’s, Marlborough, St George’s, Preshute and our own St John the Baptist, Minal.

Social distancing signs are up to guide people. More than 200 people have taken part in online services over 12 weeks.

The doors will be wedged open and people are encouraged to leave a marker where they have sat so that others can avoid those seats, which will be cleaned at the end of the day.

"The churches are some of the oldest buildings in Marlborough and for us reopening them is part of the whole town coming back to life," said Rev Chris Smith, rector of Marlborough.

Let's Go Back in Time

While we all get used to the extraordinary quiet of our village during these challenging times, it's nice to turn the clock back and view our community as it was through these lovely old photogaphs that have been kindly passed on by Angela Fry, formerly Angela Bailey, who lived with her parents in Minal.

Marlborough Neighbourhood Plan

 MARLBOROUGH AREA NEIGHBOURHOOD PLAN         

Notes of the second informal consultation regarding possible housing sites held in Minal on 9 September 2019

Background

Informal public consultations were made during  July 2019 in Marlborough and in the parishes participating in the Neighbourhood Plan regarding the proposed approaches to be made in the Plan, and to specified sites that could be earmarked for stated community needs.    Following the Minal consultation on 24 July 2019, in which two potential sites for housing were discussed, two further sites were offered.  The Steering Group felt that this merited further consultation, so a second public session was set up on Monday 9 September, in which maps were made available showing all four sites.
