Letter to Editor A HISTORY OF MAYORS Sir: A very good photograph in The Adviser, and what a clever (title): it will motivate me to write more on town council history. To add to the immediate information on dates Ron Tarry was mayor 1975 to 1978 and 1987 to 1988 and I served as mayor 1978 to 1981, 1990 to 1991 and 1999 to 2000 and before the mayoral office was created in 1974, I was Parish Council Chairman from 1965 to 1969; same job but different title. Well done to The Adviser. Yours etc: Jack Williams. (Jack Williams was voted The Adviser’s Citizen of the Century in 2000 - editor).

World Web News 25th April 2012: Mr William Shand M.D –“A Man that looks on Glass” Hungerford Historical Association was given an excellent talk on the history of stained glass by William Shand, a retired Consultant Surgeon from St Barts Hospital, took the title of his talk from a George Herbert poem “The Elixir”. Mr Shand suggested that the only way to view stained glass properly is by looking through binoculars so that all the details of the windows can be appreciated. In addition to the magnificent windows in Canterbury and York Cathedrals he highlighted several churches that should be visited:- Fairford, Gloucestershire which is the only church in England with it’s original glass; All Saints Church, Tudeley, Kent which is the only church in the world to have all it’s twelve windows by Marc Chagall; The Chapel of St Anthony at Oundle School, built as a memorial to the fallen of WW1 with the windows designed by John Piper and made by Patrick Reyntiens; St Andrew’s Church in Kimbolton, Cambridgeshire which has the only window in England designed by Tiffany. The next talk will be given by Roger Day – “Savernake at War” on Wednesday, 25th May 2012 at 7.30pm -Shelagh Parry CHILTON SCHOOL FETE TO INCLUDE CHILDREN OF UPSALA CIRCUS Chilton Foliat Primary School will host the Children of Upsala Circus on July 7 as part of the school’s annual fete.

The 50 members of the circus are aged from six to 20 who are offered an alternative to street life. their confidence is built through the matery of circus skills such as juggling, acrobatics and mime so building their confidence on the journey into society.

RAIN AT LAST! Heavy rain has fallen over most of the district bringing some relief to gardeners and farmers alike. Lightning was believed responsible for a power cut in Marlborough on Wednesday week. Domestic water storages have been topping up but much more rain is needed to relieve drought conditions. LETTERS TO EDITOR

Thames Water Figures

SIR: I was interested to see the Thames Water wrap-around feature in the Friday 20 to 27th edition. The comment that “After the driest two year since records began” is not factually correct for Marlborough and perhaps not for Hungerford which is just down the road, but it might be for the Thames Water region as a whole. I assume that they were referring to the years of 2010 and 2011. My weather station, consisting of professional equipment, has data going back to 1984. The data I have confirms that the last two years were third driest twoyear period: 1996/97 - 1265mm 1995/96 - 1331mm 2010/11 - 1335mm. More information can be seen at www.windrushweather.co.uk Yours etc., Eric Gilbert, Marlborough COLLEGE DEVELOPMENT DELAYED Hungerford’s John O’Gaunt Community Technology College expansion plans have received a set-back through lack of funding and the project is on hold until 2013/14 financial year. The school is planning a music, drama, learning resource centre and sixth form facilities. THERE’S A RUN AFOOT Plans are under way for a Hungerford run as part of HADCAF. Cr Benneyworth told the Hungerford Town Council’s recreation, amenities and war memorials committee hat the run would receive publicity.
