Village Sign


The school will be using the Paddock in Finches Lane during the school day for outside learning and play time. Therefore, because it is Term time and in line with Government guidance, we ask that the Paddock is not used by children not at school or the community during the school day.
Thank You.

2020 Fireworks

Unfortunately The Bonfire and Fireworks group have taken the decision to cancel this year's annual event. This is due to uncertainty of the coronavirus and all that is associated with it.
Also, we have been in consultations with our fireworks supplier and they are unsure as to what they would be able to supply us for our display.
Hopefully we can come back next year with a Big Bang !!!!!!

Ramsbury/Wanborough Surgery.

Medication Delivery Service

During the Covid shielding period, Debbie Moxon very kindly setup a medication delivery service between the Baydon Post Office and the Surgery in Ramsbury.

With fewer users of the service now and people being out and about, this service ceased from 1st September.

We are offering a lot more pre-bookable Telephone Appointments with our GPs.
These are bookable online through your normal Online Access and also over the phone with our Receptionists. We are really asking patients to go online first please, as our phones are regularly very busy now and we'd rather you book yourself an appointment at a suitable time with the GP of your choice.
If the GP still feels you need to be seen face to face, they will book that appointment directly with you.
If you are not setup for Online Access, please let us know and we can get you set up.

Please remember our Dispensary is very busy and to allow 5 working days when requesting your repeat medication.
If you are set up to receive a text message advising when your medication is ready for collection, please wait for your text message before coming to collect.
Your cooperation is very much appreciated.
