LETTER TO THE EDITOR Sir: ‘The Adviser’ for March 28 to April 4 informs us on page 11 that ‘Hungerford Town Council was £11,000 ahead of budget’. I think this is the second time within recent months that we have been told that the Council was ‘ahead of budget’. But what does it mean, ahead of budget, ? Has the Council spent £11,000 more than planned by a particular date, or £11,000 less than planned ? IS the amount a high proportion of the total budget, or just a drop ? Yours etc Charles Manton 01488 684525

LOCAL SCHOOLS GET READY TO RELEASE TROUT

T

hree local schools are getting ready to release Trout that they have hatched and grown in their own classrooms in to the River Kennet. The release is the culmination of weeks of hard work as the students conclude their ‘Trout in the Classroom’ project. The Trout in the classroom project is run by Action for the River Kennet to demonstrate the importance of maintaining and preserving the delicate Chalk Stream environment which is the natural home of the Brown Trout. Students at St Peter’s Junior School, St John’s Academy EST 1880

and St Michael’s School in Aldbourne took delivery of Trout eggs back in January. The eggs hatched a short time later and the students carefully maintained the conditions in the tank to recreate the conditions that the Trout would experience in the wild. On the 1st of April the students at St Michael’s will release the Trout back in to the river at Aldbourne and on the 2nd of April both St John’s Academy and St Peter’s Junior School will release their Trout at Stonebridge meadow. Helen Kelly, Schools coordinator for ARK said ‘We have been incredibly impressed with the level of commitment the students have shown in looking after their Trout. The children have developed a real awareness for the need to maintain and care for the River Kennet so that it continues to provide a rich and welcoming habitat for all types of river wildlife’

“NO” TO TWO

M

arlborough town councillors have turned down two major planning applications that had aroused a lot of interest recently. The proposed housing development at Rabley Wood and the care home and assisted living units in Salisbury Road were both rejected on Monday 24 March, having been held over from the previous week, while councillors waited for more information. The applications will now go before Wiltshire Council. A large group of local residents from the Rabley Wood area came to listen to the verdict and are likely to attend the Wiltshire Council planning meeting, to make their views heard there too. At the planning meeting, Cllr Richard Allen took up the previously raised point about long waiting times at the GP surgery. He stated that both the ratio of GPs to patients and the waiting times rated well nationally. (From personal experience last week, I can confirm that appointments are available at short notice for urgent or very urgent needs. Non urgent, routine appointments are best planned in advance.) - Shirley Pryor

“YES” TO “TWO”

M

arlborough Players’productions tend to be comfortable comedies, so the play “Two”, performed in the town hall last week, was a welcome departure. The setting was a pub ‘somewhere in the north’ and we gained insights into the lives of the landlord, landlady and their regulars, all played by just four actors, Narita Price Goodfellow, Mike Hosking, Charlotte Stirrup and Vernon Dunkley (plus Leo McGurk in a cameo role). Written by Jim Cartwright and directed by Anna Friend, the play was described by Marlborough Players as “edgier and more contemporary” than their usual fare. There was some humour, certainly, but the characters’ stories stirred other emotions in the audience: sadness, compassion, distaste, even anger. As the play progressed, the audience seemed to pay closer attention, at times holding their breath and even gasping en masse at one point. I really enjoyed the performance on the Wednesday and thought some of the portrayals were particularly convincing. Shirley Pryor
