The Winners of the Inaugural Hungerford Community Award

The Winners of the Inaugural Hungerford Community Award are Announced

The question was – how would you bring people together and make Hungerford an even better place to live? The best answer to this would win £750 in the adult competition and £250 in the junior competition.

An extremely high standard of entries were received and judging the winners was particularly difficult, with the final vote going to the wire.

The Winners

Adult Category

Jane Goldstein (on behalf of Chamber of Commerce) – Tutti-Pole Maze. Jane’s idea is to create a landmark and centrepiece for the town, which also recognises the unique history and traditions of Hungerford.
