Hungerford Town Council wish to express their sadness following the news of the death of HRH The Duke of Edinburgh. Our sympathies are with the Queen and the Royal Family at this difficult time.

We join with the country in mourning as we remember Prince Philip’s extraordinary life, devoted to Her Majesty the Queen and a lifetime of public service.

Flags at the Corn Exchange, Royal British Legion, Bridge Street War Memorial and outside the Council office will be flown at half-mast until after the funeral service.

Due to current Covid-19 regulations, Hungerford Town Council will not be using physical Condolence Books. However, if anyone would like to leave a message of condolence, you can ‘sign’ the official electronic version available at https://www.royal.uk/books-condolence. If you are unable to access this electronically, please contact the HTC office at admin@hungerford-tc.gov.uk or by phoning 01488 686195 and we can help you.

In line with Covid-19 regulations and the wishes of the Royal Household, we are asking residents not to leave any floral tributes. Instead, you could consider making donations to a charity of your choosing or one of the charities or organisations which The Duke of Edinburgh supported in his public duties. More information about this is available online at:https://www.royal.uk/donations.

A Tribute to Betty Grant

Tribute to Betty Grant

Hungerford Town Council wishes to pay its respects to Betty Grant, who sadly passed away on 17th March 2021.

Betty was one of the first recipients to be honoured with a Freedom of the Town Award in 2012.  She received the award for her lengthy and outstanding contribution to the community. This included her involvement with CHAIN, the NWN Over 80s Christmas parcels, the Royal British Legion and the Tuesday Burchett Club.

Betty was well known for being an excellent organiser, her kindness and desire to provide assistance and support, where needed, touched the lives of many generations within our community. This was demonstrated when Betty retired from CHAIN and many members of the community attended a reception held at the RBL in her honour.

Betty will be missed by all those who knew her. HTC’s thoughts are with Betty’s family and friends at this sad time.

A tribute to Jack Williams

Hungerford Town Council wishes to pay its respects to Jack Williams who sadly passed away on the 19th February.

Jack's contribution to the town was second to none. He was declared “Hungerford and District Citizen of the Century” in 2000 in a poll run by The Adviser. He was a town councillor for 45 years, Mayor for 5, Trustee of Town and Manor for 30 years, Governor of JOG School for 20 years, 15 of which as Chair. His voluntary work extended to Methodist Church Deacon and Stalwart, President of Hungerford branch of RBL since 2004, founder of Hungerford Twinning Association, and in the past represented Hungerford Town Football Club and was President of Hungerford Cricket Club.

In 2013 Hungerford Town Council was delighted to present Jack with a “Freedom of the Town Award”.

Jack will be greatly missed, and our thoughts are with his family and friends at this sad time.

Please click on the attached document to view the text of the eulogy to Jack, delivered at his funeral on the 10th March by the Mayor, Cllr Helen Simpson.
