STANDING ROOM ONLY AT COUNCIL MEETING

I

t was standing room only when the first Full Town Council meeting of 2017 attracted over 200 residents to take the opportunity to voice their opinions on the WBC supported plan to build 119 new houses south of the town. After a short presentation of the reasons that Hungerford Council was against this development, the audience was invited to make their views known. Deputy Town Clerk Philippa Adams was kept busy with the roving microphone to capture the many comments for all to hear. With a very few exceptions, the majority 95% as measured by the voting slips collected at the end, were serious concerns on the impact of increased traffic in the High Street and over the Common to join the A4 at Lower Denford; and the creation of a dangerous precedent of a major development in the A.O.N.B.

Hear better

Henry Oliver, Director of North Wessex Down AONB, reiterated that Local Authorities have a Statutory Obligation to treat such plans in the same way as if it were a National Park and the NWD was firmly against this proposal.

very special Christmas lunch was laid on for 30 people from in or around Hungerford who would have otherwise been alone on Christmas Day. The traditional hot meal with entertainment and a chance to enjoy each other’s company was held at the Methodist Church Hall, Bridge St., Hungerford. Transport was available for those who needed it. Hungerford Rotary Club donated £100.00 to help with the cost of this event which was a joint venture between the Village Agents and The Methodist Church as a service to the community with volunteers giving up their time on and before Christmas Day to help make this happen. Pictured are Hilary Kelly from the Methodist Church (left) and Catherine Wooliston from the Village Agents with Rotarian Myles Young presenting the cheque.

“B

eryl Fowler's passing has greatly stirred my memory. We first met at the Chilton Aircraft factory at Chilton Lodge in December 1955. Beryl was the works' manager's secretary and I was appointed as accounts' office manager. Beryl worked in the wartime factory buildingwhich was built principally of corrugated iron holding almost 200 people and I was lucky to be offered a room in the old west wing at Chilton Lodge. It was very necessary for regular contact, and there was a splendid spirit abroad with all employees which gave a happy relationship which continued through my 15 years of employment there. Beryl was a splendid organiser and when the whole business was moved into brand new premises 400 people were happily employed making worthwhile products in very splendid surroundings. Unfortunately it did not last and when the Chilton Estate employment began to fade I was on hand to offer Beryl a vacancy as town clerk with the Hungerford council. This appointment was well received by councillors and we enjoyed great benefit from her activity in that role.Throughout her long service as town clerk she always worked from home perhaps best remembered as her house in South View. I was so pleased that I could play a part in Beryl receiving the Freedom of Hungerford. This was very recent and she was very poorly. I was so grateful that I could be with her for a short time on the day that she died. So I say farewell to Beryl, a good and faithful person who served Hungerford so very well. I offer my sympathy to all Beryl's family. - Jack Williams

RESIDENTS URGED TO BE VIGILANT

P

olice in Marlborough are urging residents to be vigilant following a suspicious incident at an address in Lockeridge. Yesterday afternoon (8 January 2017), shortly after 4pm, a man called at the door of a home in the village near to the school and offered to carry out work on the driveway. When the homeowner declined the offer, the man began acting suspiciously and appeared to show an interest in the vehicles in the driveway and the house. The man is described as white, approximately 5 ft 9 inches tall, aged in his early 40s, with grey hair. He was wearing a hi-viz waistcoat. PC Teresa Herbert said: “Although no offences

were committed, the man’s behaviour caused concerns for the homeowner. “Our advice would always be to ensure you have taken steps to secure your home – keep doors and windows locked and do not answer the door if you are not expecting someone. “You may also consider installing security lighting and alarms. “And be a nosey neighbour – if you see or hear anybody acting suspiciously or any suspicious vehicles, take a note of the registration number and report it via 101. If a crime is in progress call 999. Do not report via social media or email as these are not monitored 24/7.” 126 High Street, Marlborough, SN8 1LZ 01672 512163
