Welcome to Marlborough Town Council's website. It’s designed to provide easy to access information about how the Town Council works, our services, projects and activities, local events and links to other websites. There are pages where you can find contact details for your Town Councillors, agendas and minutes for Council and Committee Meetings, details about how to book the Town Hall as well as a little about Marlborough’s history. Take a look around. We are continually looking at making improvements so, please let us have your suggestions for other information you would like to see here.

What a wonderful night with so many coming along to watch the Christmas lights being expertly switched on by Emily Barnett of St Peter’s School. Emily was chosen from those school choirs performing in the Christmas Choir Competition at St Mary’s Church. All sang beautifully. After some wonderful musical entertainment on the steps of the Town Hall, the Mayor, his Mayoress and Father Christmas helped Emily to do her magic and turn on the lights for Christmas 2013.
Citizen of the Year 2013
Marlborough’s Citizen of the Year 2013 is Viv Lucas. She’s a very special lady and has spent many years working with Scout groups and in other voluntary roles in the community. A close runner-up was Janet Louth who has done so much for Savernake Hospital. Well done to them both.
Memory Tree for Christmas
Our thanks go to local resident, Dan Claridge, for his idea for a Memory Tree and Waitrose and its Community Matters Scheme which helped to provide it. It is standing proudly in the foyer of the Town Hall with lots of stars hanging prettily in the branches. If you have a special message you would like to hang on the tree to remember a lost loved one, please contact the Town Council offices.
The Town Council has made a decision to proceed with CCTV and we are now talking to suppliers about the most appropriate technology. Before signing any contracts, we want to know more about the level of public support for this. Could you please let us know if you feel that CCTV is right for Marlborough by taking part in our consultation? Follow to take part in the CCTV consultation.
