Good News for the New Year

There has been progress in discussions between Hungerford Town Council and West Berkshire Council about provision of about a coach parking space near the High Street which will hopefully help the footfall for our shops. Five possible locations have been identified each of which have certain challenges to be solved but hopefully one will be identified soon.
