Remembrance dinner

on 02 November 2017.

remembrance day

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.

These famous lines, penned by poet Laurence Binyon are perhaps some of the most haunting written about the fallen from the First World War. Their sacrifice is commemorated each year on Remembrance Sunday and this year Hungerford Rotary Club have organised a Remembrance Dinner on Saturday 11th November to mark the occasion.

Starting at 7pm in The Town Hall Hungerford, tickets include a welcome drink, three course meal and a selection of music and reflective presentations. The event is held in aid of Armed Forces charity SSAFA (formerly known as Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Families Association) which exists to relieve need, suffering and distress amongst the Armed Forces, veterans and their families in order to support their independence and dignity.

Tickets cost £40 and are available from Fare Wise Travel, High St. Hungerford. Tel 01488686858

BMW donated for a good cause
SWIFT Medics are trained volunteer pre-hospital emergency care doctors who attend road traffic accidents and medical emergencies in Wiltshire when an incident is so serious that the NHS ambulance team needs the help of an appropriately qualified Doctor at the scene.

Blissed-out at Inglewood
You know when your trusted hairdresser of ten years tells you he’s found a good spa that you need to sit up and take notice.

Why live in Hungerford?
Those of us who live here don't have to think twice, we love it and, you've had a job to persuade us to go elsewhere.

Townsite Goes to Marlborough
After a year in the planning, Townsite Marlborough has just gone live! The success of the Hungerford Townsite prompted Marlborough residents and businesses to ask us when we could do the same for their gorgeous and quintessentially English market town.
