New "Great West Way Discover" tickets launched - travel as much as you like on selected routes, two of the tickets include Melksham - great for a Staycation or for visitors to the UK who are staying with you for a while. There are now 10 different rangers and rovers that include Melksham - see [here] for a list including maps and prices.

Did you know John Money - our stalwart supporter and treasurer for many years? Care to join us on 28th April on a trip to his beloved Seaton Tramway where a memorial plaque for the work he did for them and us will be dedicated on his favourite car (No. 8), and we'll be scattering his ashes before heading home.
