829Where to go within 30 minutes of Melksham
I often thought of writing a book "within about an hour", describing some of the places to go and see within about an hour of where I live - indeed, that's much of the inspiration for the data on our share pages system which starts you at Melksham Truth be known - it doesn't need to be "within an hour" ...

951What happened at Geekmas
A big "Thank You" to everyone who came along to Geekmas over the weekend - a good time, a great night at the hotel, and a fantastic curry had by all!

Perhaps you've come across NORWICH, but have you come across MELKSHAM? "In the Second World War soldiers used to send letters home to their sweethearts with MELKSHAM written boldly on the back. It stood for May Everyone's Love Know Such Happiness As Mine" Source - the Knowhere guide ...

989Melksham Quiz
Q: In what year did Charles Maggs set up a Rope factory in Spa Road, Melksham? That's one of the questions from a quiz... where all the answers were numbers... that I set up for the ladies of the Bowerhill Villager for their Christmas quiz last night. The theme wasn't "Christmas" but there was certainly ...

354Ballooning from Bath
I don't know how to describe the sound. A sort of rumbly hissing from the sky, duration about 3 seconds. Not loud enough to make me jump, not long enough to turn and follow the sound to its source with my eyes. I turned around and scanned the sky; or rather, I scarcely needed to scan the sky as this ...

3230Whaddon - near us and yet so remote from us
The village of Whaddon lines about 3 miles on foot from Melksham... or more than twice that by road. It's at the end of a dead end lane from Hilperton in Trowbridge... and comprises a mixture of old farms, and well tended dwellings with (it sometimes seems) a dog barking at each gate. There's a rich ...

3229Coincidence, or naturally repeating event?
Here's a co-incidence for you. Lisa and I picknicked at Beanacre yesterday, choosing the outdoors in the sunshine rather than sitting inside somewhere. The spring flowers are coming out, the grass is growing, and the fresh air clears the lungs wonderfully! Where's the co-incidence? I've just uploaded ...

1928Melksham Oak Community School, Melksham, Wiltshire
Melksham is growing, with 750 new homes approved, to be constructed in the very near future - just over the back, behind our home. And there's a new secondary school already being built, to be known as "Melksham Oak" and replacing the George Ward, which is tired and worn out. "Melksham Oak" is going ...

957Improving the historic town of Melksham
On Tuesday night, we went along to the presentation by Melksham First of their design study for improving the environment in the town centre. Melksham's a lovely town - we've been saying that for years - but with a number of eyesores. There's a few things that could be improved at little cost, others ...

"Carnival in November?" you ask. Yes - the Melksham Carnival Committee is looking forward to 16th July 2011, and early on Friday morning the lady who's going to be looking after their web site popped in for breakfast and to be shown the ropes. And I'm delighted to see that - by Saturday morning - there ...

2716Melksham in Pictures
I was feeling "out of sorts" yesterday - and the spring weather (and an urgent request for pictures for use by our twin town of Avon) gave me an excellent excuse to talk a walk round, spring clean my picture library, and put together a new slide show of Melksham. You can start the slide show [here]. ...

2175Melksham in pictures
I'm following up a huge batch of technical posts with a reminder of what a great place Melksham is to live in and to visit. Pictures here all taken during the first 10 days of May 2009, in Melksham.

Through the archway at the old fire station, you can see Melksham's market place and all the old buildings around it.

Yesterday, we travelled up from Melksham to Swindon on the 13:35 train and returned on the 17:50. Over 100 pictures taken, many of excited children with Santa Claus who somehow had arrived on the following train (so the rumours WERE true!). On the return journey, there were so many people on the train ...

929Presenting Melksham - for a weekend away in Wiltshire
I do my best presentations when under pressure. ((Important NOTE to wife / staff / cat - DON'T pressure me every morning)). By which I mean that a new presentation or one I'm not quite prepared for even though I know my subject can, I think, sparkle with a freshness that's not there if it's been wellprepared ...

"That's the longest queue I've ever seen here" said the chap outside Melkshm Post Office yesterday. It was the first of the month, it was Saturday, and it was within about an hour of lunchtime to I suppose it was no wonder that the crowd control lines were full and then the line headed out through ...
