Steps to Remember

Join us and remember your loved ones with this beautiful walk.

Walk with us from our airbase, along the picturesque Kennet and Avon Canal path, past the Semington Aqueduct, through Giles' Wood on the outskirts of Bowerhill and Seend Cleeve, before returning to the base.

This is a chance for families and friends to remember their loved ones. On return to the airbase, there will be a small reception for attendees and a moment of reflection as dusk sets in.

Carol from Melksham's story

"I’m just so, so grateful for everything they did for me. Had it not been for Wiltshire Air Ambulance I wouldn’t have seen my grandchildren grow up"

Carol Gray was involved in a major road traffic collision when driving back to her home in Melksham and needed to be flown to Frenchay Hospital in Bristol.
