News from Hungerford’s Shops & Businesses


December News

Now more than ever it is important to shop local. Hungerford Chamber of Commerce is also providing advice and support to help local businesses during this challenging time.

See Late Night Shopping on the High Street details during December with music and pizza on Friday 18 December!

Hungerford Bookshop

We happen to think that a book (or a book voucher) is the best gift you can buy. It doesn’t need batteries, it won’t go out of date, and it can be enjoyed time and again.

You can also give a ‘Book for All Seasons’ which is year’s worth of books the lucky recipient can choose themselves (with our help if required).

Customers can phone through orders on 01488 683480, or place orders online at or message us on Facebook.

We will deliver for free within Hungerford, or customers can take advantage of our ‘call & collect’ service. Books can also be posted out (and usually take just two or three days).

We are staying open until 7pm on Wednesdays and Fridays in December and you can also book a private browsing appointment.

M & P Hardware

We are happy to deliver to any isolating customers and will try to keep high levels of stock on all winter essentials including kindling, bulbs and pest control home brew kits…we also have Thomas to raffle, made by one of our lovely customers.

Emporium Hungerford

Fare Wise Travel

Stop Press – Kate Bingham the vaccine czar says we can have our summer holidays next year!  Book with us for the confidence of securing a refund if you do have to cancel. We fight your corner with the airlines or accommodation providers, and we can sort all the paperwork and advise on visas or travel and health insurance.

In the meantime, villas with private pools are particularly popular in places within our travel corridors, such as Portugal, the Canaries and Greece. 

Staycations are also in demand, particularly to the Channel Islands and Shetlands where beautiful beaches and historical interest more than make up for the cooler weather.
