Good news for Malmesbury!

Good news for Malmesbury!

A new community minibus for Malmesbury and beyond! The 17 seater Cartmell Community Minibus is now on the road and available for any non-commercial community group to hire, in and around our area, at just £1.25 per mile.
It was wonderful to meet the family of the late Cyril Cartmell, former Malmesbury youth worker and the inspiration behind the original minibus, which has been replaced with a brand new bus, thanks to funding from The National Lottery Community Fund and Malmesbury League of Friends
For the bookings calendar, opportunities to volunteer to drive the bus and the story of Cyril Cartmell, head to
Well done to John Fairhurst and the hard working Management Committee of Trustees for making it happen and organising yesterday's launch event at Malmesbury Town Council

Local stories in and around the Malmesbury area to keep you up-to-date.


A wonderful place to visit with a wealth of attractions right on the doorstep.


Malmesbury is a beautiful town to visit in its own right and attractions include the jewel in our crown being Malmesbury Abbey, the fabulous Abbey House Gardens, and Malmesbury’s 15th century Market Cross.

For more than two and a half millennia successive generations have populated this hilltop, which forms the centre of the community we now call Malmesbury.
