In place of the usual Freedom of the Town Award, Hungerford Town Council decided to do something a bit different this year by asking residents to nominate their Covid Community Champion. This was to recognise those local residents who have gone out of their way to help the community of Hungerford since the start of the pandemic. We are delighted that we have received a number of nominations for individuals and groups within the town and we would like to thank those who took the time to send these in.
All those who have been nominated have been invited to attend a private reception where they will be presented with an award by the Mayor, Helen Simpson. This event will be held on Saturday 24 July at the Croft Field Centre and, due to the numbers involved, is for invitees only. Details and photos of the Community Champions will be published online (including being added to this post) and on social media after the event.
