Mayor's Cricket Match


Thanks go to Marlborough Cricket Club for hosting this annual event.  Credit goes to our Mayor who opened the batting, our Captain, Cllr Mark Cooper, his team of cricketers including soldiers from the 4th Military Intelligence Battalion as well as Charlie Bawden (the first woman cricketer to represent Marlborough College's First XI). They all helped to put in a good performance on Wednesday, 18th July in a very competitive match which saw the hosts team winning by less than 20 runs.  Congratulations go to Marlborough CC, winners of the trophy.  A great evening and so good too that the event, raised money for the Fatboy's Charity, a small local charity helping children with cancer.

Budding Picassos at Preshute!


On Tuesday, 17 July, our Mayor, Lisa Farrell, popped along to Preshute School together with the Chairman of Marlborough in Bloom, Steve Pascall.  They were there to present the winners of the In Bloom Art Competition with their prizes kindly donated by The White Horse Bookshop.  The Mayor spent time chatting with pupils and teachers and admiring the rain collection project which also was part of this year’s South West in Bloom campaign and visited by RHS judge, Su Maddocks, last week.  Well done to all entrants of the art competition -  their masterpieces, all based on the theme of ‘Birds’, can still be seen in the window of the former Lighting of Distinction shop in the High Street.  What talented children we have in Marlborough.
