Commonwealth Day

On Monday, 13th March 2017 and in common with many towns, cities and organisations up and down the country and around the world, Marlborough took part in flying a flag to mark Commonwealth Day. Councillors gathered on the Town Hall steps in glorious early spring sunshine and the Town Mayor read the Commonwealth Affirmation. In the words of the Right Honourable Patricia Scotland QC., Secretary-General of the Commonwealth of Nations, Fly a Flag for the Commonwealth is an occasion to acknowledge, publicly and collectively, the continuing aspiration of the Commonwealth to build on common traditions and uphold our shared values of democracy, inclusive development, rule of law, and human rights.

Don't worry if your favourite bench seems to have disappeared. As part of our planned winter work the Grounds Team has been renovating benches from our public spaces. The one in the picture is ready to go back to Wye House garden very soon.


Fallen Trees


Storm Doris brought a few trees down in Marlborough - the one in the picture is on The Common. Our Grounds Team is on the case.

We've had a few calls about fallen trees on roads too. If you spot a fallen tree or other debris that will affect a public highway please report it direct to Wiltshire Council (phone 0300 456 0100).
