Launch of new Hungerford Community Award

The Town & Manor of Hungerford launches the Hungerford Community Award with a top prize of £750.

The challenge is to come up with the best idea for how to bring people together and make Hungerford an even better place to live.

This is the question being put to the residents of Hungerford, as the Town & Manor of Hungerford launches its first ever Hungerford Community Award on Thursday 29 November 2018.

Whoever submits the best idea will win a cash prize for themselves. There are two categories with the following prizes:

£750 – for the adult winner (18 yrs or over)

£250 – for the junior winner (under 18 yrs)

The award committee will then work with the prize winners to help make their ideas a reality. The committee anticipates also working with runners up to develop their ideas as well.

The Constable of the Town & Manor, Ellie Dickins said “I’m hoping we’ll see some creative thinking from the people of Hungerford. The proposal could be anything from a festival, to a bandstand, attraction or activity, or indeed something never thought of before. I’m really looking forward to seeing what people come up with.”

Entry is open to anyone who lives in the Hungerford parish, an individual or as part of a group of individuals. Applicants may submit more than one initiative entry.

How To Enter

Entries should be no longer than 4 pages of A4, of which no more than 2 pages should be text, and should include your name, contact details and age if under 18, along with illustrations, plans, images or photographs as needed, to convey the initiative and give the proposed benefits to the community. Entry is free.

The submission should also include an outline of the potential benefits of the proposal, how it could be implemented, and an assessment of the economic viability. Entries should be emailed to or posted to the Town Hall, High Street, Hungerford. Entry deadline:  Friday 8 March.

The judges will consist of a joint panel, with trustees from the Town & Manor along with representatives from local organisations such as the Town Council, John O’Gaunt School & Hungerford Primary School, Town Team and the Chamber of Commerce. The judging will be chaired by the Constable, who also has the casting vote. The judges’ decision will be final. Ownership of the initiatives will rest with the Town & Manor.

Announcement and Prize Giving will be during Hocktide in April 2019.
