POST OFFICE SEEKS NEW HOME

T

he Mayor, Deputy Mayor, Cllr Small, Cllr Simpson and Town Clerk met with Stuart Scarle (Network operations Manager) from the Post Office Ltd following the official notice that the Post Office will temporarily close on 21st April, due to the closure of Martin McColl’s store, which currently runs the franchise. Stuart advised he is continuing to work to find a solution to provide a Post Office service to the community and the Town Council are in support of this. Locations are being sought and both the Mayor and Stuart are continuing in dialogue with retailers who have adequate access and space, such as Co-op, Tesco and From the Heart. Another possible location is the Library which is in the process of becoming a

community building and needs to raise funds. Friends of Hungerford Library are keen for this location. This could also be a possible location for a temporary post office whilst a permanent solution is put in place. The Post Office carry out a 14 week consultation when moving a branch and relocating usually takes 6 months. We do not wish to see Hungerford without a post office even if it is temporary. Although there is no mobile van post office available in this area to help, an outreach branch may be able to provide a service in the interim and HTC have requested that this be investigated. The link https://runapostoffice.co.uk/home/result/ show/hungerford-post-office-hungerford-rg17-0dn provides more details on running of the Hungerford post office and shows the fee income you can expect which ranges from £42,800 to £48,200. Here you can apply to take on the running of the Post Office in your retail premises. When the Post Office branch relocates it will be a Main Post office meaning it will need to open all day on a Saturday, as well as during the week, and will need to keep the Enrolment Identity Machine. The Post Office can provide some funding, for fitting out and training of staff.

The Hungerford/Marlborough Adviser, Friday, February 17 to 24, 2017

HERE AND NOW in HUNGERFORD No. 44 in a series of regular briefings from the Council

FEBRUARY 2017

CRISIS IN THE HIGH STREET? The decision to close Martin’s the Newsagent will rip the heart out of our High Street and the inevitable fall in footfall will impact hard upon many other establishments in the town unless this gap in our retail outlets is not closed quickly. In what appeared at first to be a management ploy to gain better terms from the Landlord as their Lease was due to be renewed in April has proved to be a false hope. Instead the number crunchers in Martin McColl’s HQ have done their sums and no doubt with the prospect of higher Business rates, concluded that the shop was no longer viable.

(the Council) negotiations already started, can produce an “outreach” provider. Details of such a service are at an early but promising stage and the result depends on a number of variables. Our immediate aim is to have this service sited in the Library complex. Clearly there are many hurdles to clear not the least of which will be the administrative maze of West Berks Council.

THE LIBRARY

As many will know, even though West Berks Council has decided to implement Option A for the West Berks libraries, they have acknowledged that our variation on this plan – now deemed Option D is worthy of further investigation. Perhaps the prospect of having a Post Office in the building may even add weight to our case. If you will excuse the pun, we shall keep you posted on developments and will ensure that it is on the Agenda for our Annual rd What has been of the highest value in the store is Public Meeting scheduled for Thursday 23 March in the level of personal service provided by Rose and the Corn Exchange. Put it in your diary. her colleagues and our hearts and best wishes go out to them along with our grateful thanks for their endearing efforts. Some might be surprised that with over 1,000 customers per week visiting the in-house Post Office that it would have generated sufficient income. But clearly those customers did not purchase much in the other side of the operation. Perhaps the fact that most of this stock could be bought in many other shops in town and with no unique high value, high profit items, was the root cause of the demise.

Our town is in a relatively affluent area and I have little doubt that the central location of the shop will attract many but it will be a challenge to ensure that it will be best suited to our needs. What would be your choice of use for the premises?

POST OFFICE TO CLOSE 21 APRIL The era of Crown Post Offices in all towns is long since gone and each Post Office has to face up to fierce economic scrutiny. Whilst there is no obligation to have a Post Office in this town, we have established that we shall have the service renewed in due course. This means that it likely that there could be a “break in service” for several months unless our

Fantastic Evening at Open Mic Night – Hungerford RBL

I

f you like your music country-flavoured with a dash of rock ‘n’ roll, then you would have had a great time on Friday 10th at the Hungerford Royal British Legion. A warm welcome was extended by the barmaids, Helen and Tina, and the 4-act line-up all provided their services free of charge to support the Royal British Legion. First up was, to all intents and purposes, a Dubliners’ tribute band, Banjo Ian and His All Stars. The 5-piece covered many of our Dubliners’ favourites: Whiskey in the Jar, Dirty Old Town and Black Velvet Band. They lacked a little of the drive of the late Luke Kelly but otherwise acquitted themselves well. Next up was Robbo Robinson, an avuncular figure with a great sense of humour, more than ably backed by the session guys: Mike Willis, an excellent lead guitarist, Dave Sholl on bass, Bob Pierce on drums and the supreme pedal-steel of Kevan Bartholomew (Everly Brothers, Emmylou Harris et al.)

Mango I’m 4 years old, very affectionate and live with Tracey in Marlborough after she rescued me.

HOBBIES

I love playing with cat toys and prefer the indoor life. Especially sleeping on Tracey’s bed!

SECRET WEAPON

My grumpy face, even though I’m a happy cat. If you have a cute pet please send us a photo with your name, the pet’s name and a brief description of him or her; we’ll publish the photo in The Adviser.

ungerford students are entering two prestigious national competitions in writing. This week they have been watching the BBC Live Lesson on writing for Radio 2’s 500 Words Competition in preparation. Last year, a JOG student beat 125,000 entries to qualify for the second round of the prestigious 500 words competition, which has inspired current students. The Writing Club are also looking to enter a competition run by Mother & Daughter Author and You Tuber team, Perdita & Honor Cargill. Run in collaboration with Simon & Schuster and First News, JOG’s young writers will pen monologues and duologues between characters. Head of library Nicola Chester said: “There is a real passion for writing stories in the school and we want to capture that and give them an opportunity to shine at the very highest level. “They have so much energy and ideas for what they are writing about we are excited to see this year’s entries.” - Shane Christian Dean 6 15/02/2017 11:55

Fantastic Evening at Open Mic Night – Hungerford RBL Continued from page 5

A couple of songs were inserted between the bands by Adam Winslet. If you haven’t heard him before he has a very fine, baritone voice; we would have liked to have heard some more from him. Finally, the star attraction, Dusty Rhodes, came on. The tempo of the repertoire was varied from slow ballads, like the Kris Kristofferson number, Help Me Make It Through The Night, to rockier songs, such as Working Man Blues, where Mike Willis took over lead vocals. By the latter stages of the evening, the dance floor was crowded with couples doing their own versions of The Tennessee Waltz. The next open mic night is Friday, March 10th but get there early – this is one gig you won’t want to miss!

ST FRANCIS SCHOOL RAFFLE RAISES FUNDS IN MEMORY OF PUPIL’S BROTHER

S

t Francis Headmaster David Sibson made a very special presentation this week to Year 6 pupil Phoebe Cox. Phoebe accepted a cheque for £802 on behalf of The John Radcliffe Children’s hospital in Oxford, in memory of her brother Bobby who died in July 2014, age 5. Phoebe’s brother Bobby died just two weeks after being diagnosed with Medulloblastoma, a form of brain tumour that affects children, usually under 10 years of age and is more common in boys. Despite an operation and excellent care at the John Radcliffe Children’s hospital, Bobby was unable to fight against the rapid spread of his cancer. At the time Bobby died, he was in Year 1 at Preshute Primary School and was just about to start at St Francis to join his sister Phoebe, who is now in Year 6. The funds donated in Bobby’s memory are the proceeds from the school’s last Christmas Gift Fair raffle, which is organised by the school’s parental association The Friends of St Francis. Headmaster, David Sibson, said “Every year the Friends of St Francis nominate and support a different charity and we are delighted that this time we are supporting the Cox family’s fundraising efforts and donating to The John Radcliffe Children’s Hospital in memory of Bobby.” Bobby’s parents Harriet and Paul Cox, who both work at Marlborough College, have pledged to raise £20,000 for the children’s hospital to help improve the playroom on Robbins Ward, which is where Bobby was cared for. They are organising Bobby’s Triathlon, a fundraising triathlon event in Marlborough on Sunday 28 May: anyone wishing to donate or take part please visit: www.facebook.com/harrietandpaulcox/ EST 1880
