Shoppers in Royal Wootton Bassett can enjoy buying after hours this month, with many businesses in the town extending their hours in the run-up to Christmas.

Extra shops will be open on Thursday evenings as December 25 approaches, with some hairdressers and cafés also joining in.

Hazel Newson, from Royal Wootton Bassett Business Association, said: “We believe this is the first time so many businesses in the town have got together to offer late night Thursday and Sunday opening.”

Opening hours are up until 7.30pm on Thursdays and 10am-4pm on Sundays.
