News from Hungerford’s Independent Shops & Businesses – January 2022

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

Fare Wise Travel

Happy New Year everyone.

Great news that the requirement for UK-bound travellers to have a PCR or lateral flow test within the 48 hours prior to departing has just been scrapped by the government – a small gesture but it reduces hassle and cost.

For more 2022 travel advice from our experienced team please see here.

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).


HAPPY NEW YEAR from all of us at Inklings.
Our Winter Sale (up to 50% off) has already started but as an added thank you for all the support during 2021 there will be 10% off everything in the shop (including Sale items but excluding stamps) until Saturday 8 January. Come and grab a bargain.

Belle Chic Health & Beauty

Out with the old & in with the new! Mii pro glide manicure & pedicure polish in Gel and normal polish is going to replace Jessica because we want to support UK brands and Mii offer the latest nail tech and expert hand and foot care with skincare-focused ingredients.

For optimum nail health, the formula has been fortified with Mii’s Vita-Care complex of vitamins, the scent lingers and is more plant based.
During January and February you can book a luxury pedicure and we’ll enhance your visit with a complimentary brow tidy. Gels cannot be applied in a luxury treatment. Just remember your open toe sandals so you don’t ruin your polish! We do have flip flops in the salon in case you forget.
Please follow Belle Chic on social media or email to join our mailing list.

Hungerford is lucky to have two Honesty Coffee Shops at Barrs Yard and Herongate Club (where customers are asked to wear masks at the counter and walking around the cafe).

Don’t forget you can order baked goodies from the Honesty website for collection at your favourite Honesty coffee shop.

To minimise waste, they recommend this Bread & Butter pudding recipe to use up any leftover bread.

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!
