Plume of Feathers advances forward!


L-R: The Richmond Fellowship Team Tricia Print, Richard Dallimore, Albert Lucas, Nathan Jenkyn, Nick Riley with Nigel Weatherly (Marlborough Town Council) and Steve Pascall

Marlborough in Bloom’s Chairman designate, Steve Pascall and the Town Council’s newly appointed Grounds Manager, Nigel Weatherly, were on hand to congratulate hard working members of the Richmond Fellowship who were awarded an Advancing award in the recent RHS South West in Bloomcompetition. The Fellowship works with those with mental health problems and is part of the group of charities, Recovery Focus, working towards making individual recovery a reality. It leases the beautiful Plume of Feathers Garden for a peppercorn rent from the Town Council. The garden sits just off Plume of Feathers Lane behind London Road which, thanks to the Fellowship’s efforts, has become a real oasis in the middle of Marlborough. Very well done to everyone involved.

We've applied for £10,000 from the Aviva Community Fund but only the projects with the most votes will become finalists and in with a chance of reaching the final stage. We're depending on grants like this to get the centre open ready for our community to use it after Christmas. Voting opens today, and you can vote up to 10 times - so please take a moment to vote for us - and spread the word! Click HERE to vote. Read more...

Remembrance Commemorations

On Remembrance Sunday people from Marlborough and beyond turned out in great numbers despite the cold weather to take part in Marlborough's traditional Remembrance Sunday Parade. Following an inspection in the High Street Phoenix Brass led the march to the New Road War Memorial for all to pay their respects to those who lost their lives in war.

Marlborough also paused at 11 o'clock on Saturday, 11th November to respect a two minute silence for Armistice Day, followed by the laying of wreaths at the 7th Battalion Wiltshire Regiment Memorial. More photographs of the two events can be found in our gallery.
