The Bridge delivery volunteer needed
Due to the previous delivery person moving out of the village, we need someone to undertake delivery of 21 copies of The Bridge in the area from the Hollow and along Deep Lane towards the church (but not quite as far as the old school).
21 copies of the magazine would be delivered to you on or around the 28th of each month. Delivery doesn't take long and helps ensure that every house in the village gets a copy of The Bridge each month. If you would like to take this on, please contact Liz Garrett on 01373 839060 at firstname.lastname@example.org

Corsley Reading Room
Doors open at 7 pm
film begins at 7.30 pm
Allow yourself to relive your childhood with a grown‐up, overworked Christopher Robin when he is reunited with the friends of his, and probably our, youth.
Now a husband and father, Christopher Robin is working far too hard for a family firm, charged with increasing efficiencies to save his colleagues' jobs. As a result, he emulates the reason the luggage company is in strife by not going on holiday in order to continue working. His increasingly despairing wife and daughter leave him behind with his paperwork.
An unexpected reunion with a lost Pooh leads to some endearing mishaps together in London before the two of them return to Hundred Acre Wood to find the rest of their friends. All the old characters appear — Piglet, Eeyore, Tigger, Owl, Kanga and Roo. Through their misadventures and suitably far‐fetched fun, they all, together with Christopher's wife and daughter, help Christopher save the company.
Critics are undecided whether this is a film for children or adults, so maybe it is both, and if you enjoyed Paddington 2 with us last year, you're going to be treated to another evening of old friends having new adventures. Be prepared for a mixture of nostalgia and feel‐good humour.
Refreshments and a licensed bar
Tickets £6 from Acres Supply (cash only please), or on the door.
Corsley Parish Council
Annual Parish Meeting
Monday 4th March
6.30pm, Corsley Reading Rooms
This YOUR meeting
Andy Mead and Sean Tye from the Wiltshire Strategic Assets Team to brief us on the new Baytree Close proposals, with particular emphasis on getting village support.
Jon Timney, Longleat's new Director of Property and Maintenance, to present Longleat's plans for the future. I have asked him to be ready to answer questions on any and all interfaces between Corsley and Longeat, particularly Longleat's impact on local traffic, ticketing and access policy, future of the Caravan Club site, Tascroft Court Development, development of the property portfolio in Corsley (e.g. the Longleat Tavern, ex White Hart) and, of course, the plans for the park attractions.
All Parish Councils in England are required by law to hold an Annual Parish Meeting. The meeting allows the council and local community organisations to explain what they have been doing over the last year and electors can have their say on anything which they consider is important to the people of the parish. Please note that this is not a Parish Council meeting, although it is chaired by the PC.

Corsley Photo Archive
Help us tell Corsley's story!
Houses are altered, pulled down or extended; landscapes change, trees are cut down, hedges disappear and, because we live here all the time, these changes go un-noticed. These alterations, recorded in the odd snap here and there, are often in the background. This project has been set up to document and display those changes for posterity.
We would do this by scanning, archiving and displaying the photographs and building a website. If the photos have creases or are a bit faded we can retouch the scanned image and supply a rejuvenated copy. If you are interested in this idea and can help as part of a study group or by letting us see your photographs, then do please get in touch with Phil Plumb or Liz Garrett.
