Hungerford’s hive of community

on 19 April 2018.

hive of community

At the heart of every successful community is the people. Hungerford Town Council provides just that with their team of dedicated councillors, determined to recognise and support the thriving community of Hungerford.

Following a successful annual litter pick in Hungerford this month, the council have set their sights on some of the important dates for the town’s Summer calendar.

This May will see the award for “Freedom of the town 2018” bestowed on the candidate whose actions and demeanour have demonstrated exceptional service to the town. The ceremony will recognise their selfless commitment to the community.

The town will be buzzing with Hungerford in Bloom’s annual competition showcasing the best horticulture, with gardens and allotments galore.

The summer will go out with a bang with the grants ceremony in July providing a lifeline for some of the vital project work in the town. Community groups such as the Youth and Community centre, CHAIN and Arts for Hungerford were all beneficiaries last year.

You can find out more about the council’s services on their microsite.
