(Hungerford Environmental Action Team) evolved from concerns within the Town Council as to the growing impact of Climate Change and the necessity to deal with such in an effective way.


HEAT regards itself as a resource for the community and also an instrument via which ideas and initiatives to reduce the impact of the Hungerford area on climate change can be channelled and implemented.

We do not have all the answers.

A fundamental part of the process is to assess the degree of awareness and concern within the Hungerford community with respect to low carbon initiatives, and to understand how much of the community is already implementing change.

Hungerford Freegle

Don’t throw it away – give it away!

You might not need your old sofa or wheelbarrow any more – but there might be someone just round the corner who does. Or if there’s something you’d like, someone nearby might have one that they might just throw away if they don’t know what else to do with it. Freegle groups make this happen online. Sign up, post an OFFER of something you want to get rid of, or a WANTED for something you need. Our aim is to keep anything reusable out of our landfill sites. Meeting new people helps to develop local community networks and friendships in the process. We hope you enjoy freegling with the freegle community!

Your library is about so much more than books
Judging from the amount of community activity going in Hungerford Library, the council are going to have a hard time justifying its closure in their next round of swingeing cuts.
