Citizen of the Year 2018
At the Christmas Lights switch-on on Friday 30 November our Mayor announced that Marlborough’s Citizen of the Year for 2018 is Andrew Barnett. Andrew is Marlborough's Group Scout Leader - and a qualified axe-thrower! Andrew says: “One of the best bits about volunteering with the scouts is seeing and making amazing lifelong friends.”
Thank you to everyone who nominated Andrew and others for this award - we have a very worthy winner. Read more about Andrew here...
Christmas Lights 2018
Our Christmas Lights event was as popular as ever with a busy market and children's funfair in the High Street. MCs Mark Jones and Nigel Kerton introduced the fabulous entertainment, and after the Mayor announced Andrew Barnett as Citizen of the Year, he and TV's Paul Martin helped her lead the countdown to the big switch-on. See our gallery for more information and photos of the event.
Town Centre Survey
The Neighbourhood Plan Steering Group is undertaking a Benchmarking review of the town centre. Benchmarking has been conducted in over 350 locations and measures performance against key indicators such as retail offer, footfall, shoppers origin, business performance and car parking. The results are used for developing regeneration projects, attracting funding, measuring the impact of events and festivals, creating town centre partnerships, planning projects and inward investment - in this case part of the overall evidence gathering to help us complete our Neighbourhood Plan.
Please take 2 minutes to complete this important survey, which runs until 17 December. Read more...
