Great Western Railway has announced £3,000 for the new lighting at the village's train station (picture from Google Street View).

The cash is coming from GWR's Customer and Communities Improvement Fund.

Pewsey's winning bid is one of only two to get funding in Wiltshire.

The money will be used to fund lighting and signage.

This will allow pedestrian users of the railway to access the station using a safely lit pathway.

Great Western Railway Managing Director, Mark Hopwood, said:

"We at GWR recognise only too well the vital role that rail plays in local and the national economy, and I am delighted that we have been able to continue to support the communities we serve with this funding."

Supported by the Department for Transport, the Customer and Communities Improvement Fund was established to recognise and back projects needed by the communities where GWR operates.
