Information about the renewal of bus passes
From 01 January 2019, not all bus passes will be renewed automatically. This is because there are approximately 20,000 passes in circulation that have not been scanned on a bus prior to renewal, indicating that the pass has not been used. In these cases, the passes will not be automatically renewed.
If your pass is not automatically renewed but you would still like to receive one to use in the future, please contact Wiltshire Council on 0300 456 0100 and we can arrange for your new pass to be issued.
Wiltshire Council regrets that any charges which may occur on bus journeys are non-refundable.

We are pleased to announce that Castle Hill Country Park has been transferred to the Parish Council. Now the hard work begins to nurture the Country Park, turning the spoil -scapes to wildflower-scapes and ensuring the special qualities of Castle Hill are preserved for future generations.
We are marking the occasion with the installation of 6 stone way-markers and 2 pavers from the artist Kerry Lemon inspired by our community heritage. The art is based on the medieval tiles that were cast from potteries in the local area and feature the special wildlife of our chalk downs.
To find out more please do come along to the Community Art workshop and Country Park drop in on Monday 15th of April at Hampton Park Pavilion 11.30 to 2.30.
If you cannot make this event there will be more opportunities to get involved with the Country Park over the coming months.
