MANY of us in the villages surrounding Salisbury will have been concerned about the impact of the Skripal poisoning on our city.

As webmaster of our village website,, I have been in touch with Wiltshire Council on several occasions to ask them if they would please notify me of any notices that may be of interest to our communities.

I have never heard back from them.

In your issue of April 19 you finish an article 'Clean up may take until Christmas' by saying that Wiltshire Council would be holding a public meeting on that day at 6pm. They did not tell us.

Just what does it take to persuade our County Council to communicate properly with the communities it serves?
