We feel safe to announce that we are firmly in 2023, with the festivities of November and December 2022 a distant memory, we are now looking forward to a year full of exciting events and we are kickstarting it with the return the Mayors Annual Dinner and Dance in just two months time!

On Saturday 18th March 2022 at Trowbridge Civic Centre, The Mayor of Trowbridge Graham Hill would like to invite you to the ‘Festival’ themed celebration.  During the event money will be raised for Wiltshire Air Ambulance and Storehouse through raffles, charity auctions and donations.   Last year, over £2000 was raised for the local chosen charities of 2022. The evening will include a three course meal, live entertainment, auction and awards. Not only does the event support the local charities, achievements within the town will be recognised by the presentation of the both the Civic Award (recognising an individual or organisation that has made a significant contribution to the town) and the Town Enhancement Award (similarly, a building project that has enhanced Trowbridge).

Wiltshire Air Ambulance

Wiltshire Air Ambulance provide vital support to our community during medical emergencies. Wiltshire Air Ambulance’s mission statement is a simple one: They save lives. They rely solely on donations to fund this vital service to our community.  Funds raised not only keep the helicopter in use, it also provides support on the ground as their paramedics also use Rapid Response Cars to attend incidents by road when the helicopter is unable to fly or it is quicker to use cars. All of the vehicles have the same equipment onboard as the helicopter.

Storehouse Foodbank

Storehouse food bank is a project that aims to support families, couples and individuals in short term need of food and toiletries. The service began in 2006 in response to a growing need within our community and since this time we have developed good working relationships with a range of local agencies and services aiming to support the wider community. In April 2010, the food bank opened a referral centre and since then has served 9,500 people. This equates to 85,500 meals. Access to Storehouse is available to people who are referred by a supporting professional such as a teacher, social worker, key worker, minister, or through another agreed referral agency. Provisions can be collected from our referral centre where service users will be provided with three days’ supply of food.
