There was praise for volunteers at the Warminster Annual Town Meeting. The Annual Town Meeting is an opportunity for all local government electors in the parish of Warminster to discuss any issues that concern the town.
This year the meeting took take place on Monday 3rd April 2023 at Warminster Civic Centre, Sambourne Road, Warminster.
Over 40 people attended to listen to reports from various voluntary groups as to how they had spent the grants they had received from the town council.
Representatives from each of the groups spoke at the meeting for up to 3 minutes or submitted a written report that was read out by the mayor.
