Community

Ramsbury Community and Charity

Ramsbury has so many different facets that there is truly something for everyone to enjoy, observe or get involved with. We are very fortunate to have a number of wonderful buildings, old and new, around which the community can thrive.

Our ancient heritage and beautiful landscapes attracts visitors whilst our Schools and Churches cater for locals: the Memorial Hall and of course our wonderful café and pubs allow friends, family and strangers to meet and enjoy the atmosphere. We have an thriving local economy, excellent transport links, fine public services, and compared to many, are fairly affluent…

But it is in the people who dedicate time and effort to the diverse groups, organised or occasional, formal or irregular, that Ramsbury excels. The rich history of its inhabitants nurtures a deep affection for our village, and these pages attempt to invite everyone to participate in today’s Ramsbury, whatever your interest or moment in life – and if you cannot find it, please help our village to evolve – your help will be invaluable!
