The Silver Circle is a club which provides an opportunity for older people in the village to meet socially. Membership is available to anyone aged 55+ and both ladies and gentlemen are equally welcome!

We get together in the afternoon of the 3rd Wednesday of each month, and a variety of activities are organised throughout the year – for example, illustrated talks, lighthearted quizzes and bingo. Meetings are held at the British Legion Club in Big Lane, and the afternoon is rounded off with tea and biscuits. Guests are always welcome too, for a small fee.

We also arrange 2 or 3 outings each year, and non-members are welcome to join us. The cost of the outings is subsidised for members, from our fundraising.

The annual membership fee is amazingly low! (currently £4).

Hungerford Town Council Annual Meeting @ Hungerford Corn Exchange
Mar 20 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm
Hungerford Town Council Annual Meeting @ Hungerford Corn Exchange | England | United Kingdom

Our annual town meeting  will be held in the Corn Exchange. Doors will open at 6.30pm for refreshments. We would really like to see as many residents as possible support this event. This is your annual meeting and your views are hugely important to us, so we are going to open the floor for you to explore our portfolio. We’re changing the format this year and intend to invite representatives from other areas of the community to celebrate all things Hungerford.

The following groups will have tables at the events with representatives who can answer any questions you have:

Recreation & Amenities/Youth Council
Hungerford Allotment Holders Association
Police
Town & Manor
Tourism & Economy Committee/North Wessex Downs
Finance & General Purposes Committee
Highways & Transport Committee
Environment & Planning Committee
Chamber of Commerce
West Berks Council
Smarten Up Hungerford
H2036 (Neighbourhood Development Plan)

In particular, this will be an opportunity for residents to make their comments on the last-named of these, the neighbourhood development plan. Community engagement is an essential part of this and your comments will, therefor, be influential.

The event will probably finish about 8.30pm.

Meet the Artist Robert Fitzmaurice @ Greenham Common Tower
Mar 21 @ 10:30 am – 12:00 pm
Meet the Artist Robert Fitzmaurice @ Greenham Common Tower | England | United Kingdom

Local interest groups and individuals are invited to meet the artist Robert Fitzmaurice. He will talk about his exhibition NO EDEN and share his ideas and working methods. The sessions will also be an opportunity for Robert to learn more about the Tower and the common from different perspectives.

Each session can accommodate a maximum of 25 people.

All welcome, although these sessions may be of particular interest to those already associated with the Tower or it’s history. Booking is essential.

The café will be open for these sessions 10.30-13.30 and 18.30-20.30.

About the Exhibition

This exhibition of paintings and mixed media looks back at the social history of the site, especially the former military presence and the peace camp protests of the 1980s.

Over the years Robert has developed a variety of figurative and semi-figurative motifs to question ideas about power, gender, childhood and identity. This exhibition advances those themes in the context of the actions taken by the Greenham women to confront patriarchy and challenge militarism. The common was certainly no Eden then but this show offers no safe historical perspective. When leaders with nuclear arsenals have insulted each other with terms like rocket-man and dullard, and the US and Russia have withdrawn from the INF Treaty the same tensions exist now as then, and deserve our attention.

About Robert Fitzmaurice

West Berkshire audiences will have previously seen Robert’s work in Open Studios INSIGHT and exhibitions at the Corn Exchange, Arlington Arts and last summer in SOLDIER Sandham Memorial Chapel.

Originally from Coventry Robert Fitzmaurice studied Fine Art in Sunderland 1980-83 and for his MFA at the University of Reading 1984-86. He became a full-time artist in 2015 and is a studio member of OpenHand OpenSpace. Previous exhibitions include The RA Summer Exhibition, ING Discerning Eye London and NN Contemporary, Northampton.
