News from Hungerford’s Independent Shops & Businesses – September 2021

Hungerford is famous for its independent shops and businesses which make the High Street worth a visit.

Fare Wise Travel

Quick reminder folks that even if you have been double jabbed and are travelling to Europe’s Amber destinations you will still need to do a PCR test less than 72 hours before your return flight to the UK and pre-book a test for Day 2 after your return.

Good news that Italy has abandonned its quarantine requirement but Norway still has one so beware – just because they are on our Green List doesn’t mean that we are on theirs!

Holidays to Malta are currently very popular but Thailand is now off the menu as it is on our government’s Red List.

Please contact Veronica on 01488 686858 or or pop in. We are open Monday to Friday 10am -3pm at 19 Hungerford High St (under railway bridge)

Hungerford Legal & Financial Centre

This month we welcome The Hungerford Mortgage Company into our fold in order to expand our capabilities to help local people in our One Stop Shop for all things legal and financial. The HMC ( as we like to call it) will be able to scour the market for the best deal for all clients.

Our Finance & Legal Show on 4LEGS Radio this month discusses the Stamp Duty changes about to happen, the pros and cons of being a Limited company as opposed to a sole trader, some hot tips for mortgages and some doggy legislation rules. Listen here from 6 min 20 sec.


Our conveyancing team in Marlborough Law are extremely busy as well with many people deciding to sell up and move to the coast which we believe is a result of many people having “staycations” this year.


Marlborough Law and Hungerford Financial Partners have collaborated and launched their new service Protect Your Business which helps small business owners with fixed cost legal advice and a variety of insurance policies to keep their business safe for the future.


Please remember, our door is open 8.30am till late for anyone who just needs a quick word of advice or peace of mind. Our office is in central Hungerford, overlooking the courtyard at the back of Eliane’s Cafe. 


Until next month – stay safe, stay legal.


Our office is shared by Marlborough LawClaritas Accountancy, The Hungerford Mortgage Company and Hungerford Financial Partners. 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.
