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

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


The clocks have gone back and it is eight weeks until Christmas. We have lots of lovely Advent Calendars and great selection of Christmas Cards which will raise much needed funds for the charities that they support.  From Friday 5 until Tuesday 9 November we will be selling crackers at 50% off.  Once they’re gone they’re gone so pop in to take advantage of this sale!

Hungerford Printing Co.

We are excited to be welcoming our first Pop-Up Shop on Monday 15 November in our studio office. We are  kicking off with Beatnix Vintage’s beautiful vintage clothing, jewellery, accessories and homeware carefully sourced by Chula who also has a regular stand in the Hungerford Arcade.
Our charity push this Christmas will be a collection of Christmas Shoe boxes for Berkshire Women’s Aid. Please put together a shoebox/giftbag of items such as toiletries, chocolates, wooly socks or stationery to brighten this season for those who are particularly vulnerable or isolated at this time. Drop-off at our offices, Unit 6, The Courtyard, Hungerford High Street Tuesday to Thursday, 9am to 11am.

Hungerford Mortgage Company

Desperate to leave home? Maybe the baby is on the way and you need a larger pad? Perhaps you want a more manageable place to live? Or are thinking about buying to let? 
That’s why the Hungerford Mortgage Company was started, by people just like you – to remove the anxiety and worry about mortgages. We only care about getting you the best mortgage deal available – even ones you wouldn’t be able to find yourself.  
It starts off with a chat to see if we can help you. Obtaining a mortgage is one of the biggest decisions you’ll ever make, so we’re only happy when you’re completely happy. 
As part of the Hungerford Legal and Financial Centre on Hungerford High Street, we’re available every weekday so you can always drop in, give us a call on 01488 646222. We can always come to you   – even in the evenings or maybe you’d just prefer to chat over Zoom.
