IF you’re looking for ideas for day trips and holidays, the Melksham Tourist Information Centre is the place to go.
“Brochures and leaflets are now starting to come in for many holiday destinations and day trips etc,” said John Ruderman. “Do drop in to pick up any information you want. More will arrive over the next few weeks.
“If you fancy a day out, we have many guide brochures available for local attractions and far away venues such as London and can advise on your travel arrangements.
“We have timetables available for local bus and train services in the shop and our volunteers can also advise you for all your travel enquiries.
“We can also book your tickets for National Express services. If you are an older person or a young person, we have coach cards for sale which give a good discount from National Express.
“If you want to go to one of the excellent shows at the Assembly Hall in Melksham, we have all the information about them and can book your tickets in our shop.
“Available in the shop are a good range of local guide books, brochures, postcards and souvenirs, postage stamps, maps and local honey.
“Our local community bus runs day trips on a regular basis, call into the shop for more details and to book your place.”
The TIC had another very successful period in the lead up to Christmas, when many people came to the shop to buy their popular charity Christmas cards.
“These cards support many charities, both locally and nationally,” added John. “Along with the sales of cards, we sold a great many Christmas stamps, at times struggling to keep up with demand. Thanks to all for your continued support.
“If you have any spare time, we are always interested in new volunteers at the TIC. The work is not too arduous, you would be helping customers with enquiries, both in the shop and on the phone.
“Volunteers work for a morning or afternoon and we are open six days a week, so lots to cover! If you are interested, please call in for a chat.
“Our opening times are 9.30am – 4.30pm Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday. 9.30am – 1pm Wednesday and 10am – 1pm Saturday. Telephone number 01225 707424.
