Foodie Sunday

To mark the 10th and final day of Taste Salisbury, we were delighted to host Foodie Sunday on Sunday 5 September 2021.

A food and drink treat! Located in Salisbury Market Place, the event was a food and drink extravaganza featuring a fantastic array of local food producers and suppliers.

Food demos, tastings, local chefs, an array of food vendors and the Salisbury Vegan Fair joined us in the Market Place which was enjoyed by all. There was also fab live music acts throughout the day.

14 fantastic bakers entered into The Great Salisbury Bake Off with fantastic cakes such as Victoria Sponges, fictional character cakes and fruit cakes. Judges were impressed by all entries and 4 winners got their hands on fab prizes from The Cake Forge, Waitrose Cookery School and Charter 1227 Catering. 

Thank you to everyone who visited and took park in the hugely enjoyable day.

Salisbury Together 2016

In July 2016 Wiltshire Council will make a decision about changing theSCC Salisbury Together Spotlight Buttonboundary of the City of Salisbury. Currently the City of Salisbury boundary does not include Laverstock, Ford, Old Sarum and Bishopdown Farm, and we think it should.

Wiltshire Council have contacted every household in those areas to tell them about the boundary review. As your local council, we want you to be informed of the changes that could happen in your local area.

We think it is only fair that every resident in Salisbury has their say on this important decision.
...this is where we need your help!

If you are a Salisbury resident you will be receiving this Salisbury Together 2016 document through your door shortly.

Please click here to view the statement made by the Leader of Salisbury City Council, Cllr Mr Andrew Roberts, at the public boundary review meeting on Monday 9 May 2016.

Wiltshire Council are currently contacting Laverstock, Ford, Old Sarum and Bishopdown Farm.  Please click here to see the latest information from Wiltshire Council.
