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

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


We hope that everyone enjoyed their Jubilee celebrations, thank goodness that the rain kept away in the most part.  Thank you for all the lovely comments that we had about our window displays, we enjoyed doing them..
Our thoughts have now turned to Father’s Day on Sunday 19 June and as always, we have lots of cards and gifts for the Father/Grandfather/ Special Man in your life so come and see how we can help you celebrate.  We also have lots of lovely new cards and gifts arriving this month for other occasions in your life.

Hungerford Printing Co.

We were delighted to be part of the team behind the Jubilee celebrations. Hungerford Printing Company printed the banners at both ends of the town, and also printed various signs that pointed the picnickers to the car parks and Croft Green last weekend. We were on hand to help set up and tear town on the day too and we were really pleased to see everyone having a great time.

Other HPC activities including printing the bunting for the Chamber of Commerce’s Jubilee tree outside Boots.  All in all a busy week.

Pop in to see us down the alley between Eliane’s and Hungerford Bookshop. Enquiries to: or 01488 684337

Hungerford Coin & Stamp Centre

With Platinum Jubilee celebrations having been in full swing, the public have been inundated with offers of Platinum Jubilee coinage from various mints.

But please tread carefully – only the Royal Mint are authorised to produce UK coinage.

The glamorous adverts shown on TV offering gold-plated coins are merely metallic style issues from countries like the Channel Isles and Tristan da Cunha which hardly have any resale value in the secondary market.

If you want to invest in Platinum Jubilee coins stick with UK issues. We currently have the 50p coins in stock

Open: Monday to Saturday 9am to 5pm, Sunday 10am to 2pm.

The Clockmaker

We have a range of affordable clocks for sale in the shop as well as our usual range of antique clocks and barometers online which  make lovely gifts.

We are also extremely busy servicing and repairing watches and clocks. 

Hidden behind decades of dirt and rust, this lovely clock dial with a bespoke engraving has a nice 30 hour movement but we think the last time it was working was over 50 years ago. We are pleased to report it is now working smoothly again.
