09 December 2020

Welcome to the 2021 edition of Wiltshire Life. It is time to look forward with the prospect of a vaccine to immunise against the Covid-19 virus, bringing the opportunity to see family and friends once again. In the January issue we look at the towns across the county that are well worth re-discovering, with plenty of independent shops and interesting places to visit.
