countdown1lights-and-crowds

Our Christmas Lights event was as popular as ever with a busy market and children's funfair in the High Street.  MCs Mark Jones and Nigel Kerton introduced the fabulous entertainment, and after the Mayor announced Andrew Barnett as Citizen of the Year, he and TV's Paul Martin helped her lead the countdown to the big switch-on. See our gallery for more information and photos of the event.

Andrew Barnett is our 2018 Citizen of the Year

Andrew-Barnett-Square-Pic

Marlborough’s Citizen of the Year is Andrew Barnett who was born in Mildenhall and moved to Marlborough almost 30 years ago where he has been a volunteer for the 2nd Marlborough Scouts ever since taking on various roles from Assistant Cub Leader to Group Scout Leader.  Andrew volunteers because he really enjoys working with young people and seeing them grow in confidence, achieving things they believed were beyond their reach.  He has arranged overnight camps and lots of outside activities as well as giving children the chance to learn new skills from archery, climbing and abseiling to axe-throwing (Andrew is actually a qualified axe-thrower!)  Sometimes his work has included involving young people with special educational needs and Andrew has been pivotal in helping to make sure they are seamlessly integrated into the scouts.

 On Monday 12 November the BBC Rickshaw Challenge came to town and hundreds turned out to give it a warm Marlborough welcome. Matt Baker, Harry and Team Rickshaw rode up one side of the High Street and down the other then up into Kingsbury Street and on to Royal Wootton Bassett. Even our Mayor and Town Crier were there to wave it on its way. If you couldn’t make it, you can still contribute to Children in Need at https://rickshaw.bbcchildreninneed.co.uk/index.html

Older person’s standard Wiltshire concessionary bus pass

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 to arrange for your new pass to be issued.

Wiltshire Council regrets that any charges which may occur on bus journeys are non-refundable.
