The Community Right to Bid gives community groups a fairer chance to save assets that are important to them. This could include such assets as your village shop, pub, community centre, children’s centre, allotment, library, cinema, recreation ground, etc. and the right covers private as well as public assets.  More information can be found on Wiltshire Council’s website using the following link:

Chippenham is one of the West Country's most dynamic market towns with a population of over 40,000. The combination of the old and the new, the historic architectural gems, modern shopping centres and nearness to some of the country's greatest houses and historic villages, makes this town midway between Bath and Swindon an ideal location for living, working and visiting.

BLOOMING BULBS - Free to Schools and Community Groups

Chippenham Town Council will brighten up parts of the town and create a spectacle of colour next spring by  planting hundreds of bulbs. The areas chosen for planting will include Baydons Wood (next to the Blue Bridge over the river), the area in front of the Western Railway Arches as well as the verges next to Ivy Lane. The Town Council will be leading on the bulb planting but are calling on community groups, schools and volunteers to lend a hand. Bulbs and trowels will be provided, so all we ask is that you please help with our autumn planting. We will all be rewarded with beautiful blankets of colour next Spring.
