harnham Park re-routing of heavy traffic will be discussed at Hungerford Town Council’s Highways and Transport committee meeting on Monday night. Notification of the item on the agenda prompted email response from district Councillor James Podger. “I note the inclusion of ‘A4 Charnham by-pass’ on the H&T agenda Having moved to Hungerford from Billingshurst due to the bypass there killing the Village and many of its businesses (including mine) I would caution against any such proposal.

COUNCILLORS SUPPORT PLANS FOR ST JOHN’S SIXTH FORM STUDY CENTRE

A

t a recent meeting Dr Patrick Hazlewood, Principal of St John’s Marlborough, and a group of St John’s students presented exciting plans for a new Sixth Form Study

Centre. Funding for the Centre has resulted from a £1.19M grant from the Education Funding Agency. The grant has been awarded because the number of Sixth Form students is expected to grow in the Marlborough and Pewsey Area, given that all young people now have to remain in education or training until they are eighteen years old, and St John’s is oversubscribed and unable to accommodate any further growth. The meeting at St John’s was attended by Wiltshire Councillors Stewart Dobson and Jemima Milton, Mayor of Marlborough Guy Loosemore, Deputy Mayor Marian Hannaford Dobson, Marlborough Town Councillor Margaret Rose, as well as Tony Forsythe, Deputy Head at Pewsey Vale School and representatives from the Governing Bodies of both St John’s & Pewsey Vale School. At the meeting the plans for the new building were revealed and students explained how they felt the new Study Centre would benefit everyone at St John’s and enable more students to remain at St John’s in the Sixth Form in the future. Dr Hazlewood said “This grant is wonderful news for all local students. The new Centre will relieve the pressure on classroom space, and enable us to offer a broader range of courses to ensure that local young people have more choices and opportunities for their education after GCSEs. There was huge competition from schools all over England for this funding, and we feel incredibly privileged to have been awarded this grant at a time of so many public sector cuts”. The new Sixth Form Study Centre will be built outside the main entrance of the school and will comprise eight sixth form classrooms and a private study area. A planning application is being submitted in March and Dr Hazlewood is confident that given the support that has already been shown by parents, and was offered at the meeting, the new building will open in April 2015. -K. HUNTER

ROYAL VISITOR AT ST JOHNS

O

n 6 March a group of International Baccalaureate Diploma students at St John’s in Marlborough had their Shakespearean studies dramatically enhanced by a visit from King Lear

himself. Simon Russell Beale, who is currently playing Lear in the Academy Award winning Sam Mendes production at the National Theatre, visited St John’s to sit in the IB Standard Level English class, and discuss the play with the students. The visit was arranged after the students saw the production of King Lear at the National, when St John’s English teacher Richard Smith told Simon Russell Beale’s sister-in-law, a governor and parent at St John’s, how impressed they had been with the production. Following this, the man described by the Independent as “the greatest actor of his generation” agreed to attend the one-hour lesson and meet the group of nine Sixth Form IB students. Student Jake Seaward, 17, was one of the students to benefit from the visit. “He was a really nice guy - contrasting with his part in the play, and it was fascinating to witness the depth in which he had researched the play and the way in which he had almost “become” Lear” explained Jake. “It was interesting to see how he didn’t just act in the play; he had in-depth knowledge of every character, theme and motif within the play to such a degree that there were many aspects highlighted during the discussion that we had hadn’t picked up on whilst studying the text. I feel that his visit has greatly contributed towards both my understanding and enjoyment of the text”. The International Baccalaureate students sit their final examinations in May. The IB is an internationally-recognised alternative course to AS/Alevels and enables students to study a broader range of six subjects as well as a Theory of Knowledge course and a requirement to participate in community activities. Research has shown that the majority of university admissions officers see the IB Diploma as the best course for preparing people for university.

CHARNHAM PARK TRAFFIC RE-ROUTING TO BE DISCUSSED Continued from cover ... The costs of the scheme would be massive and the funds will not be available, or are HTC promoting massive development in Hungerford? As that is the only possibility of developer funded contributions making the millions necessary available - I for one am strongly against either - BOTH.” Chairman of the Hungerford committee Cr Roger Thompson replied: Thanks for your interest in the H and T agenda: your views no doubt reflect those of your fellow traders in Charnham Street. The issue is not so much one of a bypass, which has been discussed with Mark Edwards and discounted on the grounds of prohibitive costs, but more of mitigating the effects on Charnham Sreet and the High Street of HGV traffic, in response to public concerns. The issue is parked, but we will keep it live on the agenda until we hear from WBC whether rerouting HGV traffic is possible, and hope we can count on your support I note that you re-affirm your opposition to over-development in the town, which is the Town Council stance.

THE END OF THE QUEST!

T

he Hungerford Chamber of Commerce is delighted to announce that the ‘Quest for the Hungerford Jewel’ first launched by the Chamber in June 2009 is over. The Keeper of the Jewel was successfully identified and challenged on Sunday 23rd February at midday in Hungerford’s Market Place by Alex Selby and Ingrid Jendrzejewski from Cambridge, and they have claimed the Hungerford Jewel as their prize. They have beaten all the other entrants, by working their way patiently and carefully through the maze of cryptic clues and classical allusions, and on the way have found what a lovely place Hungerford is. They have been led up and down the High Street and Bridge Street, up to the Common and down to the Marsh. They entered back in 2011 when they visited Hungerford on a whim after hearing about the Quest. Then baby Rosalind arrived and Treasure Hunts were no longer a priority. The Chamber decided in January of this year to bring the Quest to a conclusion. If there was still no outright winner by the end of February, they would issue a second list of less cryptic clues. All the entrants were informed of this decision and our intrepid Questers decided to have a second shot at the clues. They worked late into the night on St. Valentine’s Day and had a revelation about the final solution...the rest is history. Ingrid says that even if they had not been successful ‘It’s been such fun to think about, and it’s introduced us to a lovely part of the country – one we would not have discovered on our own’. They will receive their hard-won prize, the highly symbolic Hungerford Jewel, designed and made in 18 carat gold, silver and gemstones by local goldsmith Greg Furr at a presentation to be held at the Town Hall in Hungerford later in March. All other entrants to the Quest will be invited to attend, and the correct solutions will be revealed! For further information, please contact: hungerfordquest@gmail.com or Nigel Perrin chairman@hungerfordchamberofcommerce.com or Rachel Furr on 01488 686226

“TWO GREEDY ITALIANS” BRING A TASTE OF ITALY TO MARLBOROUGH

T

he BBC’s “Two Greedy Italians” Antonio Carluccio and Gennaro Contaldo will be headline chefs at the new Marlborough Food & Drink Festival to be held on Marlborough Common on the 10th & 11th May 2014. These two well-known Italian chefs will be sharing their wisdom, humour and passion for good, simple Italian food reflecting their culinary heritage on Saturday 10th May. Later the same day, Antonio will do a further demonstration talking about Pasta. The Festival welcomes a number of creative chefs to the Evie Willow Chefs Kitchen, who will entice you to explore and expand your skills with their demonstrations. As well as welcoming Antonio and Gennaro to the Festival, other celebrities taking centre stage include award winning novelist, journalist and Guardian Restaurant Critic Jay Rayner who will entertain visitors with his razor sharp wit and repartee. Chef and forager Mark Lloyd who worked with Hugh FearnleyWhittingstall to launch the River Cottage Canteen, will be introducing visitors to wild food that can be found easily all over the country, some of which we will have walked by without realising what it was. Rachel Green, TV chef and author will be “Cooking for All Seasons” using local, seasonal British food. Local chef Peter Vaughan, from Vaughan’s Cookery School and the Bistro in Devizes will demonstrate his naturally balanced” philosophy, a crucial part of all the culinary activities in his kitchens. The Marlborough Food & Drink Festival offers delicious regional and international food, real ales, fine wine, cider and champagne coupled with live music and street theatre - making this Marlborough’s most unique family weekend out. Wine connoisseurs can enjoy interactive and educational courses covering a range of subjects from old world to new world wine. Sponsors of the International Wine Theatre, Yealands Estate Wines, from the Awatere Valley in Marlborough, New Zealand, will tell you how they produce a range of award winning wines. In 2012, their Sauvignon Blanc was voted best in the world at the International Wine Challenge. Come and discover why the critics agree these wines are not to be missed! There will be over 116 exhibitors, show casing an exciting range of delicious and unusual produce. So something to suit every taste. So, why not join friends, family and work colleagues and celebrate summer in style! Visit www.garden-events to find out more and book your tickets.

Buzz is a pro at sneaking into cupboards when you go to put things away, so he is likely to be in a shed or garage. So if you have a shed or garage we beg you to take a look. Please let us know if you can help. Helen and Jay Salisbury 01488 681589
