TOWN SHOW A RARE TREAT WITH FIDDLER ON THE ROOF

H

ungerford’s 2013 Town Show will feature Fiddler on the Roof as produced on the New York stage by Harold Prince and originally directed and choreographed by Jerome Robbins. This very special treat from The Community of Hungerford Theatre company will be for five performances in John O’Gaunt School from Wednesday, February 20 to Saturday, February 23. Hoffi Munt reports: For a while it looked like the CHTC’s production of Fiddler on the Roof would be missing a key ingredientthe fiddler. Fortunately a talented young musician has volunteered to tread the boards and the show will go on! Fiddler on the Roof includes many familiar songs including, ‘If I Were a Rich Man’, ‘Matchmaker’, ‘Tradition’ and ‘Sunrise, Sunset’. Continued on page 2 ...

Continued from cover This production, involving cast members from age eight and upwards from in and around Hungerford, promises to be a vibrant show for all the family. In the musical the image of the fiddler on the roof is important as it represents the lives of the characters and the Jewish community. Like the fiddler, their situation is precarious but it is traditions that keep them balanced. Throughout the show these traditions are challenged and it is up to the main character, Tevye, a poor milkman, to keep himself and his family perched on their metaphorical rooftop. Just like the traditions in the Jewish community Hungerford Town show has also become a tradition, running for over thirty years , it continues to go from strength to strength. “Even in rehearsals the enthusiasm and warmth of the group is clear from the smiles on their faces and the quality of their performances,” said Jane Munt, who has volunteered to manage the front of house team this year. The show runs nightly at 7:15pm from the 20th23rd of February 2013, including a Saturday matinee at 2:15pm Tickets are now on sale from £8.

LOCAL SALON REACHES FINALS FOR SECOND YEAR RUNNING

T

The Hungerford/Marlborough Adviser, Friday, February 15 to 22, 2013

here are celebrations in Hungerford this week after it was revealed Perfectly Posh Hair Design has reached the finals of the English Hair and Beauty Awards for the second year running. Discerning customers across England have been voting in the past few months to nominate their favourite salon and salon staff and Perfectly Posh is one of just five finalists for the Salon of the Year category for the South East, while Jodi Gale has also reached the final for the category of Colour Technician of the Year. Owner Krysia Wilson said: “Last year we were delighted to make it through to the finals and had a great time at the award ceremony in Manchester, and although we didn’t win, just getting that far has helped transform the business. “When we opened our new salon in Hungerford back in September, doubling the number stations from four to eight, it was made possible from the new business that being placed in the final brought us and already we are seeing new customers since this year’s finalists were announced and we shared the news on Facebook and Twitter. “It was actually a tougher competition this year with not just votes counting, but what clients said in the comments section of the nomination forms, so we are even more thrilled to reach the final and who knows... we might even win!” The team at Perfectly Posh do not have long to wait, the finals are on the 3rd March, again in Manchester and it could mean an especially exciting spring for the salon as it has also just been selected for Glamour magazine’s exclusive salons guide.

01488 682328 PRICELESS PICTURES LOST - CAN YOU HELP?

I

hope you can help as I was given your name by a member of the Hungerford ladies social group as I had put a post up on facebook on the 8th Feb as we are desperate. My husband and I buried our newborn baby daughter on 7th Feb and we had the wake in the cygnet room at the Three Swans from 4-6.30pm and as we had left the function room to go to the car I had lost my camera most likely in the car park but hadn’t realised it till late that night. Have phoned the Three Swans and went back there that night to have a look, but no luck. The camera is a bright blue fuji finepix Z20 camera in a black case and it has all of our photos we had taken in the hospital when she was born. So there are pics of my husand and I with our little girl. These photos are precious to us. I think someone has found it but has not handed it in. So if anyone who has suddenly gained a camera please take it to the police station. The photos are so important to my husband and I.

CLAIRE PERRY WELCOMES MULTIMILLION POUND DEAL FOR SUPERFAST BROADBAND IN WILTSHIRE

C

laire Perry, MP for the Devizes Constituency, has welcomed the recent announcement of a £35.6 million deal to roll out superfast broadband in Wiltshire and deliver faster internet connections to rural areas. The deal, between BT and Wiltshire and South Gloucestershire Councils, will mean 91 per cent of homes and business in the Wiltshire authority area should have access to world class broadband speeds, with work starting later this year and finishing by March 2016. Commenting, Claire said: “I am delighted to see real progress being made to extend and improve broadband in Wiltshire which will give a big boost to the local economy and attract new businesses. I am well aware of the need in the Constituency to boost not just broadband speeds but also accessibility to the internet in rural areas and this important deal will prevent rural communities from being left behind”.

BACKING FOR TOURIST GROUP

L

eading Hungerford organisations will back moves to establish a Hungerford tourist and development group. Hungerford Chamber of Commerce was told by its chairman Nigel Perrin on Thursday night that Hungerford Town Council, Hungerford Town and Manor and others were prepared to back the joint effort expected initially to cost about £3200, most of which would be the cost of professional advisers. The meeting voted in favour of the chamber contributing up to £700. At a meeting called by the chamber at The Bear Hotel on Wedneday night to discuss the tourist project, Mr Perrin said it was not open to the press and he would appreciate that details not be disclosed.

“ASSET TO THE COMMUNITY” West Berkshire Council has told Hungerford Town Council’s environment and planning committee that the former Tally Ho Inn meets criteria as an asset to the community. A group of citizens have been pressing for the inn to be retained and used for community purposes. The building is currently an estate agency.

DEVELOPMENT SITES TO BE SOUGHT Hungerford Town Council would soon advertise for development sites, the last environment and planning committee was told. Cr Peter Hudson said there could be concern from residents and an application would not mean that the site would be approved.

LOVE YOUR RIVER THIS FEBRUARY: CARE FOR THE KENNET

T

hames Water and Action for the River Kennet (ARK) are working together on a river awareness campaign that urges people to use water wisely to protect their local river. Care for the Kennet directly links local water use with impact on the local river. We are offering Kennet residents a free water saving home makeover worth £150 that could save you up to £85 a year on your water and energy bills. The makeovers will provide householders with free devices from shower timers to save-a-flush loo adapters. The Installers will provide detailed information on which devices best suit your home. This spring our trained installers from Climate Energy will be

coming door to door in a different Kennet village each week. They will be starting in Chilton Foliat, and then moving on to other villages including Ramsbury and Aldbourne. Future projects are planned in Lockeridge, Avebury and East and West Kennet. If you would like to find out more, then ARK will be running an information stand for one morning in each village. Alternatively, you can book an appointment by calling Climate Energy on 0800 358 6665 and quoting ‘Kennet’.

8/2/13 Be part of Avon’s Army of Volunteers! A war has been declared on non-native invasive species! You may not even have realised that we are being invaded. Such is the devious nature of our enemy. Help is at hand with Avon’s Army of Volunteers, but we still need more brave souls ready to fight the scourge of invasive species on our river. This dedicated, if disparate, group gathered its troops recently at Salisbury’s Guildhall to draw up their battle plans. Avon’s Army of Volunteers includes representatives from parish councils, landowners, charities such as Wiltshire, Hampshire and Isle of Wight and Dorset Wildlife Trusts and even a representative from Bristol Zoo.

600 SIGN FOR ELECTRIFICATION 600 signatures had already been collected in favour of electrification of the Hungerford Railway line, Cr Alana Wilson told the last Hungerford Town Council meeting. This project funded by the Environment Agency as part of commitment to restore rivers, both physically and for The petition may be viewed and signed at Hungerford- their water quality. Town Council office. POTHOLE PROBLEM IN HUNGERFORD Cr Roger Thompson has drawn Hungerford Town Council’s attention to extensive potholes in the town, brought about in severe weather.

Leading the attack, Sam Stork, of Wiltshire Wildlife Trust’s Source to Sea project said “Over the past months, local landowners have been helping us to reconnoitre, gather intel, and generally spy on our enemy, the invasive species. And now that we know who they are, and how many there are, we are ready to take the fight to them. We will fight them in the river. We will fight them on the river banks. We will not rest until the River Avon is cleared of non-native species again. This is our finest year. 2013 will go down in history as the year that Britons helped their wildlife fight back.” That intel – collected over 300km of the river - resulted in over 2000 records of harmful, non-native species currently invading our stunning river. It must be stopped before our wildlife suffers irreparable damage. That’s why Wiltshire, Hampshire and Isle of Wight and Dorset Wildlife Trusts are asking you to volunteer. Help us to fight these invaders. Come out and work along our river, its tributaries, chalk streams and waterways. Be part of our Avon’s Army of Volunteers and turn back the tide of the invaders. They do not fight with guns, but with sweat, with gloved hands and waders on their legs. So far, 65 brave souls have stepped forward, representing parish and city councils, landowners, anglers, government bodies such as Natural England and the Environment Agency, the business community and ordinary people who care about the River Avon. Wiltshire Wildlife Trust’s Sam Stork ended saying “This is our last chance. We either fight for the Avon or we lose part of our natural heritage that is currently struggling to survive. Like any good Army, we have a solid plan of action. What we need now are the troops, the volunteers to come out and help us fight.” -Kelly Barnett
