Dropped Kerbs in our Town

The Town Council is pleased to inform residents that works have started on a series of new dropped kerbs in the town.

A survey of areas that were short of dropped kerbs revealed that there was a particular need in areas of housing built a number of decades ago. A case for this work to be carried out was submitted to the Local Highways & Footways Improvement Group of Wiltshire Council and this was agreed. Wiltshire Council will provide 75% of the cost and Royal Wootton Bassett Town Council the remaining 25% (£9,250.91).

The areas of the town which will benefit are, the Rosary and Queens Road area and the Lime Kiln, Fairfield and Laburnum Drive area.

This will be of great help to parents pushing prams and buggy’s and especially to user of mobility scooters. With an ageing population, the increasing number of mobility scooter users will find this particularly helpful.

We hope to be able to bid for further work on dropped kerbs in future years.

D-Day 80th Anniversary Celebration – Thursday 6th June 2024

A FREE Community event for all the family, taking place at RWBRFC to celebrate the 80th Anniversary of the D-Day landings.

Free parking available with pedestrian access from Jubilee Lake to the Rugby Club. Under the RWB Rugby Club site rules no dogs are allowed. Programme for this evening is now available.

41 Degrees will be headlining the event, also featuring
The Wessex (choir).
Cantanti Choir.

Fairground attractions for the children.
Vintage cars on display.
Food vendors including a fish and chips van. This is a nod to the significant role fish and chips played to ensure the safety of our troops on foreign soil. Soldiers aware of others in the vicinity, & not knowing if friend or foe, called out ‘Fish’. If the response was ‘Chips’ he was certain the unseen person was a friend.

The lighting of the Beacon is an event taking place throughout the United Kingdom, Channel Islands, Isle of Man and UK Overseas Territories at 9.15pm.
Representing our town will Rev Katey Minshall, who will undertake the reading of the Tribute and our Town Mayor will be lighting the Beacon.
We would love to see the whole town there to join in and celebrate with us.
