Ramsbury Scout Group ramsburyscouts@gmail.com 

1st Ramsbury Scout Group
Adventure is at the heart of everything we do.
Scouting helps our young improve their key skills, including social skills, teamwork, leadership bravery, kindness, trust, confidence and above all, a sense of spirit and adventure; Skills for Life!.
Ramsbury Scout Group runs a varied and exciting programme for the children of our village and surrounding areas. We offer a wealth of activities, from camping and hiking to surfing and paragliding, as well as doing our bit to help within the local community.
We have a full commitment of Beavers (6 – 8yrs), Cubs (8 – 10.5yrs) and Scouts (10.5 – 14yrs). Each section meets up once a week during term time and we also all go away during the summer (and winter as well for the Scouts) for a weekend under canvas.
We can’t run the Group without a dedicated team of volunteers and we are always on the look out for new volunteers. What ever you can give, will contribute towards the smooth running of the Group. This could be ‘back of house’ stuff such as committee, or ‘coal face’ Leading. All volunteer roles are extremely rewarding. I know this from personal experience!
Scouting is a unique adventure that’s full of surprises. Join in, either as an adult helper, or young person and see for yourself.
Visit our web site for more information or to enrol your child either in to the Group, or on the waiting list:

Ramsbury Luncheon Club

Ramsbury Luncheon Club provides a nourishing lunch to guests who are aged 60 and over.

We meet every other Wednesday, during school terms, in the Church Rooms, Back Lane, Ramsbury. The atmosphere is very friendly and we are pleased to announce that we have places available.

There are also opportunities to join the volunteers who help with the running of Luncheon Club.

If you would be interested in becoming a guest, or if you have a little time to offer help please contact Diana Trickey 01672 520630 or Sheila Morgan 01672 520501.

We will be pleased to hear from you.


Welcome to Bella Voce Choir. We are a community based four part Choir that share a love of singing and performing.

We rehearse every Tuesday evening in the Memorial Hall, Ramsbury. We are accompanied on the piano by the very talented Kevin Bates.

New members are asked to have a brief audition with our Musical Director Sian Haynes.

We sing a wide range of music including Classical, Songs from Musicals, African, Jazz and many others.

We aim to perform 2 Concerts a year either in Holy Cross Church or in the Memorial Hall. Christmas is often a busy time for us as we join the singing for Carols by Candlelight, we can also be heard in the local pubs in the run up to Christmas!

We get invited to perform at other venues, and occasionally support the singing in church on special occasions.

In recent years we have teamed up with local bands, orchestras and other choirs, which have allowed us to broaden our repertoire.

It has given us great pleasure in the past to have been able to make considerable donations to various charities, this will continue whenever possible.

If you feel that you would like to hear us sing then please look out for future advertised concerts.

It’s always rewarding to feel supported, so do please come along, you will be made very welcome. Beverley Mann Chairman.

Ramsbury Horticultural society

This is the society for anyone who loves gardening – whether you are really keen or just enjoy pottering. At the core of our activities are three shows in spring, summer and autumn. These have classes for seasonal flowers, fruit and vegetables, plus sections for floral art and cookery, with additional sections at the Summer Show. In addition to the shows we organise monthly talks on garden-related topics from September to May, a plant sale in May that offers great plants at very reasonable prices and a biennial open gardens afternoon that allows us access to some lovely village gardens. The social side is not neglected, with a Christmas Party in December and biennially a supper in June as part of the Rose Show.

The Society is affiliated to the Royal Horticultural Society because this brings many benefits, but it is very much a village group, run by and for its members. Subscriptions are kept at a modest level (rates are currently under review).

For details of upcoming events, talks and shows visit our website

Ramsbury WI

Ramsbury WI was founded in 1920 and, 101 years later, is still going strong. We are a friendly group of women from various backgrounds who enjoy coming together to learn new things, enjoy one another’s company and take part in the life of the village. We meet on the first Thursday of the month in the Church Rooms, Back Lane at 7.30pm, when we usually have a speaker plus time for tea and chat. We also organise monthly coffee mornings at the Royal British Legion club, lunches out at local pubs and theatre visits.

As a WI member you are part of an important national organisation, and have the opportunity to take part in campaigns ranging from increasing awareness of the signs of ovarian cancer to improving local bus services. You also have the opportunity to go to a whole range of study days and talks organised by the Wiltshire Federation of WIs.

The best way to find out more is to come along to any of our monthly meetings: you can be assured of getting a friendly welcome. Or contact us at WI@ramsbury.org.

For other clubs and societies, see the contact list under Community Information.

Ramsbury Silver Band

Ramsbury Silver Band origins date back to 1900 when founder, Thomas Hobbs, formed the Ramsbury Methodist Band to play hymns for Methodist Church services. Over the years, the Band continued to thrive, surviving both world wars when many players were called away to join the forces.

During the 1970s, the Band moved away from the church, changed its name to Ramsbury Silver Band and expanded its repertory. It has become well known for entertaining performances at fêtes, shows and bandstands throughout the region.

To book the band for your event, email
Edward Judge silverband@ramsbury.org or call 07976 724550 or 01488 491035

If you or your child wishes to try out a brass instrument (or percussion), whether or not you have some previous musical experience, do give us a call or email. We can offer beginners one‑to‑one or small group learning sessions at 6:30 – 7:15 pm on Fridays. Instruments are loaned free of charge as required. It can often be very beneficial if a child and parent learn together.

We would also be delighted to welcome brass or percussion players who have recently moved to this area or who would like to revive their playing skills. We meet every Friday 7:30 ‑ 9:30 pm in Axford Village Hall.
