Six Kingdown School students attended a Warminster Town Council meeting to address results of a questionnaire they conducted. 

Warminster students: Chloe Hurd, Sarah Gibson, Will Hall, Harry Orchard, Tom Chilvers and Ellis Dackombe conducted a questionnaire distributed to other students titled 'What irritates you about your town?'

The students took six areas to focus on: Environment, Commerce, Community, Leisure, Employment and Public Transport. 

Warminster Town Council welcomed the student's to report on their findings with results showing that litter in Warminster, areas where young people can socialise and access to free Wifi where the main issues raised. 

Warminster Town Council advised the group of students of the organisations they can join to get their voices heard including the Wiltshire Assembly for Youth and Friends of Warminster Youth Committee. 

In a statement released by Kingdown School it said: "The students were unaware of the existence of some of the groups, but were interested in finding out more."

Members of Wiltshire Council who attended the local meeting congratulated the students on their presentation with Councillor Fryer saying they were a 'breath of fresh air."

    I think noami has a big area to cover but as i have said before this site is no longer local at all and i dont bother visiting it much anymore when their are better local websites available like danny howell's site, the warminster web and the vision for warminster. all these sites are real local sites made by people who live in warminster and i dont think noami lives in warminster??

    Hello, yes, I made a big mistake by stating it was Wiltshire Council rather than Warminster Town Council. My apologies (even I make mistakes) and the article has been amended with the correct information.

    Yes I post on the other Local People websites, I have lived in Wiltshire for the majority of my life besides university and love the communities across the county. Hope this clears the air a bit.

    Chris, hadn't spotted that until you pointed that out, what a very very poor piece of reporting. Not only a irrelevant picture the wrong council!

    I'm with Purdee on this. I believe the last council meeting in the town hall was before 1974; nearly 40 years ago!
    I also note that your report refers consistently to Wiltshire Council. In fact this was a meeting of Warminster Town Council and you can read the minutes of this very meeting on their website.
    I suspect that this, and your previous postings about WCC, which have raised comments here before, means you have very little knowledge of Warminster.
    A quick search on Google shows that you do equally regular postings on the companion forums for Bath, Trowbridge, Corsham, Chippenham, Westbury, Marlborough and Melksham (have I missed any?)
    In reading your posts it would be nice to know what your vested interests are as your behaviour is certainly unique on this forum. Perhaps you would like to tell us?

    It's only because it's quite an iconic part of the town. OK, next time i'll pop a pic up for the civic centre :)
