He watched a demonstration of how it is used and even tested out the equipment himself. Outreach Centre Co-ordinator, Zoe O'Reilly, thanked the Mayor saying "This new equipment will be a valuable resource and help our patients in a dignified manner". Read more

Christmas Day Lunch in the Town Hall

celebration-315079 1280Over 30 people have already signed up for the Christmas Day lunch in the Town Hall, a firm favourite on the Marlborough calendar each year for the town's older residents. The festivities start from 11 am with lunch served at 12.30 pm. Anyone wishing to attend can either pick up a form from the Jubilee Centre in the High Street or contact Cllr. Lisa Farrell by email at

The Town Council is delighted to be supporting this event again and is donating free use of the Town Hall. Andrews Quality Meats and Marlborough College have generously offered to donate the food, and it all comes together thanks to a small army of volunteers who give their time before and on the day to make sure those present will have a wonderful Christmas Day. Thanks also go to Waitrose - and all of you who dropped your green tokens into the community box.
