The Queen's Birthday
On Thursday 21st April the Union Flag was flying above Marlborough Town Hall and St Peter's in celebration of the 90th birthday of Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II who was born on 21st April 1926. Our Town Mayor, Councillor Margaret Rose, said: "Today is to celebrate a great day for a great lady". There was also a peal of bells at 2.30 pm from St Mary's Church to mark the special occasion.
Churches Together and the Town Council will be marking the Queen's official birthday on Sunday, 12th June at St Mary's Church at a special Civic Service - A Celebration of our Queen and our Community. This will be a time of thanksgiving to bring the whole community together and a chance to look back at the parish over the last 90 years - a "then and now". Read more...
We are interested in hearing about your memories - what did the High Street look like in 1926 compared to how it looks now, what were we learning in school and reading in the newspapers, which families are still living in the town today and more.
Do get in touch and let us know and we will compile a small exhibition of your special Marlborough Memories.
If you are part of a community or voluntary group holding an event to celebrate our Queen's birthday, please get in touch. You may be eligible to apply for funding for this from our Small Grants Scheme. If you would like to apply, please let us know by Wednesday 11th May 2016. Apply here
Public Conveniences in Marlborough
From April 2016, Wiltshire Council will close its toilets at George Lane Car Park.
To safeguard this facility, the Town Council has agreed to take this building on under a Community Asset Transfer. There is no funding currently available to run this facility so, our Councillors have decided to sell the Town Council-owned toilets at Chantry Lane and use the proceeds to renovate the George Lane facility to a high standard offering a much improved service for residents and visitors. This will mean that the George Lane toilets will be closed temporarily, and users are encouraged to use the facilities at Chantry Lane for the next few months. Read more
