I would like to thank the staff and volunteers of the West Wilts Special Needs Activity Scheme, who once again have worked hard, contributed to and coordinated a variety of activities enjoyed by many local children including my youngest son, who is nine and has complex needs.

A sure highlight was the trip to the Cotswold Park last Friday on the coach. I wish to extend our gratitude to the people and shoppers of Melksham who have generously donated towards this local charity and to the staff at Sainsbury's Melksham whose dedication over the past year made this happen.

You are all appreciated and we look forward to next year’s play cheme. With sincere thanks to all.

Helen Ash, The Pippins, Warminster.
