Smarten Up Hungerford

Led by Hungerford Chamber of Commerce, the aim of this group is to involve as many local volunteers, residents, schoolchildren, local businesses and organisations and to encourage them to work together to help ‘Smarten Up Hungerford’.

All efforts are being co-ordinated with Hungerford Town Council, West Berkshire Council and the Town and Manor of Hungerford with the support of John O’Gaunt School and St Lawrence’s Church.

These are the jobs identified so far: 

  • cleaning and decorating the eight Entry Gates on roads leading into Hungerford
  • Litter picking
  • Cleaning street furniture including bollards and lamp posts
  • Mowing
  • Hedge trimming and branch clearance
  • Weeding beds, watering plants and dead-heading
  • Cleaning railings and road signs
  • Flower planting and maintaining
  • Pathway clearance
  • Re-planting tubs at the railway station
  • Decorating railings and fences

How to Get Involved

If you would like to join the band of 30 Smarten Up Hungerford volunteers please contact John at smartenuphungerford@gmail.com

Volunteers are welcome to choose whether to work in groups, alone or just with their partners.  We also need some carpentry help to make timber troughs with no bottoms for planting displays.

If you are a local business that would like to sponsor any of these works and plant displays please contact  John at smartenuphungerford@gmail.com

Is there something annoying you about the appearance of Hungerford?  Just let John know and he’ll add it to the list!

  1. Hi John

    I think what would really smarten up Hungerford would be some better shops and some restaurants, maybe some chains like Pizza Express – i think we should take a leaf out of Marlborough’s book and make more of a family friendly high street
