Over the past year they have added security to sixty-eight homes in the Marlborough area and also made a further forty-nine 'preventative' advisory visits.

Alongside Marlborough there are a further fourteen town councils in Wiltshire that contribute to the Bobby Van Trust making it a valuable and important resource for the elderly and disadvantaged residents across the county.  The Patron is The Duchess of Cornwall.

"They give excellent advce and make people's homes much safer" said the Mayor, Councillor Noel Barrett-Morton.  "Feeling safe and secure in your own home is so important to the elderly within the community" he added.  "This grant will make a real difference to the lives of some within the Town."
