Lots came to pay their respects around the Town Hall today for the 2 minutes silence at 11.am. Pupils and staff from St John’s standing proudly, displaying their poppies alongside the Town Mayor and Councillors. St John’s Head Boy and Girl, Matt Jones and Freya Lewis, joined the Mayor, 4 Military Intelligence Battalion and the Royal British Legion in laying wreaths at the 7th Wiltshire Regiment War Memorial at London Road.
The weather smiled on HRH The Duke of Kent as he unveiled a plaque to commemorate the centenary of the First World War. A fitting tribute to all those from Marlborough who lost their lives between 1914-1918. A wonderful day for Marlborough to remember.
Our Town Mayor and the Chair of Marlborough in Bloom invited those who worked so hard to lead the town to success in the South West in Bloom competition to Afternoon Tea at the Town Hall. Wiltshire Council staff and community groups such as ARK, the Merchant’s House, Marlborough Community Orchard and local volunteers all enjoyed tea and cake and had a chance to look at the winning trophies and awards.
