Welcome To The Amesbury Town Council Website

We hope the site helps you to find the information you need on the Town Council, Amesbury, and its surrounding area. Do feel free to send your comments or questions to us and we will do our best to help you further.

 

Amesbury is situated 8 miles north of Salisbury, with Salisbury Plain further to the north. The town is surrounded by an ancient landscape. The parish boundary of Amesbury encompasses the Neolithic site of Stonehenge - a world heritage site which attracts over a million visitors a year.

 

Amesbury is steeped in history. It is an older settlement than Salisbury, founded in 979 when an Abbey was built.

 

Over the past 30 years the town has seen major housing developments to the south, with Kings Gate the most recent, still under construction.

Foodbank - Amesbury

In my role as Manager of Trussell Trust’s Salisbury Foodbank I am excited to say we are setting up a Foodbank distribution centre in Amesbury for your local Community.  We already help people in Amesbury over 200 times a year from Salisbury and this will enable clients with a voucher to access their food parcel locally without having the travel costs to get into Salisbury.   We will also offer refreshments and a chance to chat and find out more about other services of support for them in the area. 

We will be opening in January 2017 at Wyndham Hall every Tuesday, initially 4-6pm, which will help those who are working during the day to access our services.

To make it work we will need a team of volunteers who are able to offer their time for a whole shift once a month to give out the food parcels, serve light refreshments and offer a warm welcome.

If you would be interested in getting involved and helping your community please contact me at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

We will be starting to collect food to support the new Foodbank centre at your local Tesco in Amesbury on 1st 2nd and 3rd December so please look out for us!
