Work to start on Pewsey village library

Work is due to start on building a £900,000 library in a Wiltshire village.

The existing library in Aston Close will close on 1 April and be demolished before construction work starts.

A temporary service will operate from a mobile library in a nearby car park until the building opens at Christmas.

The new library will have a meeting room and personal care room which will provide washing and changing facilities for the disabled.

Solar panels on the roof will help generate electricity and support the heating system.

Wiltshire Council said it would be a superb community facility.

Councillor John Thomson added: "We are very pleased that we have been able to secure extra facilities that will benefit the local community such as the personal care room."
