NEW BOOK EXPLORE THE HISTORY AND BEAUTY OF THE NORTH WESSEX DOWNS

W

ritten by a local author who has explored the area for many years, ‘The North Wessex Downs’ is a beautifully illustrated book that showcases the area’s history and landscape. As well as its treasures in the form of chalk and ancient woodland, the North Wessex Downs (the third largest AONB) also has a fascinating human history stretching back 5000 years. This book reveals picture-postcard villages hidden amongst the folded contours of the chalk countryside, historic churches and magnificent stately houses, while out on the open downs breath-taking views stretch over rounded chalk hills, with wide open skies above. The author, Steve Davison will be signing copies of his book (published by Robert Hale at £16.99) at The Hungerford Bookshop between 6.30pm – 7.30pm on the night of the Victorian Extravaganza on December 13th. For further information see advertisement on page 6.

P

olice told the last Hungerford Town Council meeting that Hungerford Common was getting a bad name through rising crime. Car windows had been smashed and items stolen and drivers were advised not to leave bags and valuables in cars. Also during the month diesel was stolen from Hungerford Park, high value alcohol was stolen from Tesco on the security guard’s day off and four sheds were broken into beside the A338.

HUNGERFORD’S A GREAT PLACE

H

ungerford is being promoted as a great place to live and work and a tourist information office is envisaged. A presentation was given to the last Hungerford Town Council meeting by Hungerford Chamber of Commerce chairman Nigel Perrin and Julie Lloyd. Representing the Town Team, they showed councillors proofs for a Hungerford promotional brochure and a brochure of available walks financed by a special government grant “off the back of” the Mary Portas scheme. Mr Perrin said members of the Town Team were unpaid volunteers, mostly of professional backgrounds. The mayor, Cr Martin Crane commented that the team was concentrating on tourism at the heart of the North Wessex Downs.

MARLBOROUGH TOWN COUNCIL MONEY MATTERS

T

he Finance & Policy committee met this week to discuss, and decide on, next year’s budgets. There will be increased pressures on the council’s finances, with an annual grant from Wiltshire Council being substantially reduced and the need to produce a neighbourhood plan. The latter will have long-term benefits for the town, but incurs a considerable cost in its setting up. Councillors have streamlined spending where possible and asked for greater transparency in some areas such as the mayor’s allowance. The budget will be recommended to the full council meeting next week, when the town council’s portion of next year’s council tax will be confirmed. The committee also considered small grants applications. Requests for funding outstripped the money available and committee members debated the merits and shortfalls of each. Councillor Peggy Dow was reluctant to give to the same groups year after year, saying that it shouldn’t be an expectation. Other councillors agreed and felt applicants should have to wait a year or more after receiving a grant before putting in another application. The committee awarded grants to BJ Richards Trust, The Bruce Trust, Greatwood Charity, Transition Marlborough and Inside Out. Councillors particularly supported Inside Out, which provides activities, and a chance to socialise, for adults with learning difficulties, who lost facilities in the area when adult education centres were closed down. - Shirley Pryor
