Great Progress at Marlborough Community Centre
Refurbishment of your Community Centre is coming together quickly and on target ready for opening later in the year, and we're thrilled with the progress our contractors have made after starting work only just over a couple of weeks ago. The fine weather has allowed them to carry out a lot of work to the exterior of the building where you'll spot fresh paint and render - but it doesn't stop there. Inside, as well as lots of preparation and painting, they have been painstakingly removing thousands of staples from the previously covered wooden floor of the sports hall. More pictures of the work in progress in our photo gallery. We're looking forward to having a smart new centre that the whole community can enjoy using and be proud of, which will offer the use of a multi-use hall, music room, office area and meeting rooms with a pool table as well as a suite of computers. Groups interested in using it should contact Sue Fry.
Wiltshire Council Waste & Recycling Survey
Wiltshire Council needs to develop a new waste management strategy in order to shape how it collects and manages household waste and recycling in Wiltshire in the next 10 years.
It is carrying out a public consultation in order to ensure that the strategy is representative of Wiltshire residents’ opinions, which is open until 14th November. Read more and have your say...
Marlborough takes great pride in it's annual Remembrance Parade and our community turns out in large numbers to take part and observe the occasion. This year Remembrance Sunday falls on 12th November. We are well into the planning for this event and have submitted an application for a temporary road closure between 10am-11.30am to ensure this is a safe and peaceful event. The road closures will be well signposted in advance, with notices going up two weeks before the event. Any comments should be directed to Wiltshire Council's Traffic Orders Team - click here for contact details.
