Mayor's Blog - Cllr. Lisa Farrell


Here's my blog covering October to December 2018 - a very busy time!






































Here's my first six months as Town Mayor in a nutshell... there are too many events to list them all, so I have picked some highlights from May to October 2018

2018 Remembrance Events

11 November 2018 marks the centenary of the end of the Great War (1914-1918). There are a number of events taking place in Marlborough to commemorate 100 years since the Armistice and we've listed a selection here. If you have a commemorative event taking place and would like us to add it, please let us know.

More permanent commemorations include streets on the new Salisbury Road development to be named after local people who served, and a commemorative wood to be planted on the Common.

Four years ago in 2014, to mark 100 years since war was declared, the Duke of Kent unveiled a plaque on the town's war memorial.  Read more here...

Thank you to everyone who nominated Andrew and others for this award - we have a very worthy winner.

Once again, in Autumn 2018 the Town Council asked for your nominations for those special Marlborough residents who really deserve recognition.

Candidates must live in Marlborough and Manton and can be any age, including under 18s.

Nominations were returned to us by 4pm on Friday, 26 October. The nominations were considered by Town Councillors for final decision and the winner's name was announced at the Christmas Lights Switch-on event on Friday 30 November.
