Ramsbury is a pre-medieval village steeped in history and tradition. Situated in the picturesque Kennet valley; Marlborough is 7 miles to the West and Hungerford 5 miles East.
Before the A4 was built (by-passing Ramsbury) the village was the most important centre for the area. To this day there is a strong connection with the past, maintained by the modern Bishop of Ramsbury.
Today's community boasts a thriving primary school, a large surgery, shops and a wide range of clubs, societies and services.

Proposed changes to Ramsbury Post Office.
This leaflet gives details of proposed changes.
Post Office Limited has been in discussion with Ramsbury Postmistress Elaine Flippance and is proposing changes to the premises and the way in which Ramsbury Post Office is run.The proposal includes removing the present double security counter with one retail counter which will serve both the Post Office and the general store.The reason for the proposed change is to increase the diversity of the general business so that it can subsidise the Post Office service because Post Office Limited is proposing to withdraw the £10,000p.a. which is presently paid to Elaine as postmistress on the basis that she can recover this by increasing the viability of the general business.Post Office Limited will fund some of the structural changes to the shop.ELAINE WILL BE AT THE PARISH COUNCIL MEETING ON DEC 14TH 7.45PM IN THE MEMORIAL HALL TO MAKE A PRESENTATION AND ANSWER QUESTIONS.
THE DEADLINE FOR COMMENTS IS 29th Dec (which probably means sending comments before Christmas). See leaflet for ways to comment.
As you all know the Post Office performs a valuable service to the community as well as offering Post Office services. The Parish Council has regularly reminded residents that the future of the local Post Office is on the “use it or lose it” principle but this proposed change will mean that this will be even more important. The continued presence of a Post Office in the village will depend on the viability of the general business so it is even more important that residents use it and support it.Ramsbury & Axford Parish Council*****
