Chippenham station has 1.8 million users per annum yet does not have a users representation group. There is an first meeting of a prospective Chippenham Rail User Group being held on 21st September at Methodist Church Hall, Monkton Hill, Chippenham.

TransWilts Community Interest Company represent public transport users in Wiltshire and already have a successful rail users group operating in Melksham. Call in for a chat between 5pm and 6.30pm on your way home from the station or attend at 7pm for a presentation and discussion. We will have a senior representative from GWR at the meeting who will provide an update on development plans at the station.

There will be members of the TransWilts Community Rail Partnership available to answer questions and presenting their 10 year Strategy for Rail in Wiltshire.

We hope that there will be sufficient interest to form a Rail Users Group for Chippenham station.
