Townsite Goes to Marlborough

on 19 August 2016.

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. Townsite's unique mix of visitor information and local news and events engages residents and attracts visitors in a thoroughly modern and accessible format, providing a one-stop virtual shop of everything you need to know about visiting, living, working and playing in gorgeous Marlborough. 

Townsite's driving philosophy is to do our bit to keep our friendly, intimate towns in rude good health by shining a spotlight and celebrating everything local. Many lament the march of commerce to the more urbanised areas with their chain stores and franchised restaurants when something unique and altogether superior is already on our doorstep.  Townsite  seeks to halt this trend by telling you where you can spend or save, eat and drink, what's on and where.

To make it a truly community affair, Townsite acts as a message board for social and charitable events in town, giving free publicity to not-for-profit organisations.  Everything from fine dining and literary festivals to the Scouts' Jumble Sale - we have it all. Feast your eyes.  http://www.marlboroughtownsite.co.uk/
