The building in the centre of Great Bedwyn that was for many years its Cross Keys pub - at 16 High Street - is still up for sale. Marketed from May 2016 for use that could have included it being a pub, it is now being sold as a '4 bedroom town house' - for offers 'in excess of £495,000'.
An enthusiastic audience of well over a hundred attended the launch of the new Wiltshire charity Thriving Through Venture (TTV) at Marlborough Town Hall (January 17). The charity has been set up amid concerns that we have in our society an increasing number of young people who lack self-confidence, self esteem and a sense of purpose.
Dr Steve Haig lives in Bath and commutes to Great Western Hospital because he likes working at the Swindon hospital so much. He is an Emergency Department Consultant at GWH and is among the senior A&E clinicians from 68 hospitals in England who signed the letter to the Prime Minister about the A&E crisis in England's hospitals.
Great Bedwyn Friendship and Mobility Group has received a £1,000 grant from the Friends of Savernake Hospital and the Community, which will make a substantial contribution towards operating costs.

St Mary's in Great Bedwyn will soon resound again to the glorious sound of a fully restored hostoric Grade II* pipe organ thanks to the fund raising efforts of the team at St Mary's which has been topped off by the award of a Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) grant of £23,200.
Pewsey's Bouverie Hall was full to overflowing on Thursday evening (January 18) for 'An Evening with Andrew Nicholson' - the New Zealand eventer who is based in Lockeridge. It was organised to raise money for the Prospect Hospice.
The Public Inquiry called by Wiltshire Council into the application by local residents to register amenity land at College Fields as a village green opened on Tuesday at the Town Hall.
Vale of Pewsey archaeology: six thousand year old decoration on chalk blocks from the Cat's Brain dig
These two blocks of chalk (photo above) were found buried in a very, very old posthole near Marden, in the Vale of Pewsey. But wait - these are really amazing blocks of chalk. They are decorated. They give us a privileged - if somewhat tantalising - glimpse into the lives of our ancestors of long ago - six thousand years ago.
