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

The Naked Grape
Stay well and remember…Life’s too short to drink bad wine so why not try our December wine of the month.
Fare Wise Travel
It’s great to see the travel scene building back up again but please remember you need a PCR test pre-booked for return to the UK and you must self-isolate until a negative result is obtained. USA now require a negative test within 24 hours of departure (was 72 hours). Masks increasingly mandatory especially on public transport. But Switzerland has relaxed quarantine for passengers in transit to France so skiing is possible again.
Regarding sustainability in travel, we recommend Eco-Ski who recycle and hire ski clothing and equipment.

Honesty Coffee Shops
Hungerford is lucky to have two Honesty Coffee Shops at Barrs Yard and Herongate Club.
This December, Honesty’s bread of the month is the Sage and Onion Cottage Loaf.
You can also pick up whole Christmas cakes (or enjoy a cheeky slice with a cup of coffee) as well as all the festive treats you can wish for by ordering them on our website for collection at your favourite Honesty coffee shop.
You can also use the virtual loyalty card app ‘RWRD’ to gain stamps every time you purchase your favourite coffee from any Honesty location and have access to exclusive offers and discounts, as well as getting a free coffee!
M & P Hardware
Find us up the cuttings next to Martin & The Magpie.
Our bookcases are crammed with wonderful titles, and the tables beautifully heaped with books. We are recommending shopping early for Christmas this year. And don’t forget we are open Sundays too!
Here are our top ten book recommendations for Christmas.
Hungerford Coin & Stamp Centre
Hungerford Legal & Financial Centre
This month family lawyer Karen Salmon has tips for surviving Christmas after divorce. As domestic abuse is worse at this time of year please remember that 01793 610610 is the 24 hour helpline for Swindon Women’s Aid.
Steve from Claritas Accountancy advises business owners who want to reward their staff at Christmas that HMRC allows £150 per head for entertainment over a year but if you spend over £150 then you can’t expense any of it. There is also the £50 trivial gift allowance that is tax-free for the employee. Another idea is to give half a day off work just before Christmas.
Dan from Hungerford Mortgage Company reminds everyone to pay off any debts by the required deadline as a CCJ (County Court Judgement) stays on your records for 6 years and if you need to get a mortgage during that time, you will have to get a specialist mortgage with higher premiums.
For more seasonal advice (including how not to behave at the office party) listen to the latest Finance & Legal Show on 4LEGS Radio.
Our office is shared by Marlborough Law, Claritas Accountancy, The Hungerford Mortgage Company and Hungerford Financial Partners. We also collaborate with HR experts Professionals in Partnership, and 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.
We continue to be as busy as ever in the workshop (with one clock even being sent to us from Kenya!). If you want to drop off or collect clocks to repair or purchase please call 01488 682277 to arrange.
