We also collaborate with HR experts Professionals in Partnershipand asset finance experts Industry Finance UK. This collaboration has been set up so that busy local people can address all their personal or business problems in one appointment at one place. 

Hungerford Coin & Stamp Centre

It seems to me that a lot of people have used their time at home to sort out and clear boxes of stamps, coins, medals banknotes and old gold that have been stored for years.
Hardly an hour goes by without a new collection being brought in for evaluation and sale. Here is our advice on fees, charges and auctions.

The Emporium

Trading has got off to a flying start since we reopened on 12th April and new stock is coming in all the time. 

Whether people are looking for furniture of some sort or a gift for someone (or even a little treat for themselves) we are always worth a visit to see what we have in store.

Belle Chic Health & Beauty

It’s so wonderful to have some sun but did you know that wearing sunblock daily is essential?
Wearing SPF every day can reduce your risk of melanoma, a dangerous form of skin cancer, by 50%. A minimum of SPF 30 (dermalogica’s Invisible Physical Defense) will give you 97% filtration from harmful UV rays
It also helps prevent premature lines and ageing as well as UV-induced pigmentation
Advice, treatments and consultations are all available at the salon.
Please follow Belle Chic on social media or email to join our mailing list

Stay well and remember…Life’s too short to drink bad wine so why not try our May wine of the month.
