Biss Meadows Country Park in Trowbridge will in 2018 celebrate its 25th anniversary. It was opened to the public in 1993 by HRH The Duke of Edinburgh. As is widely known, Prince Philip has now partly retired from public duties. A letter was sent to Buckingham Palace by Mayor Deb Halik on behalf of the town, congratulating the Duke on his many years of service to the nation. A letter from the Duke’s Private Secretary has now been received in reply by the Mayor’s office.
