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.
Marlborough was a major prize winner at the South West in Bloom awards ceremony on 18th September at the Civic Centre in Trowbridge. With entries from all over the South West, the competition was high. Marlborough won a Silver Gilt award, a Category Winner’s Cup, the Best New Entry Trophy, the Best Community Initiative Cup (Marlborough Community Orchard) and was also short listed for the best non municipal gardens (Marlborough College) and best municipal gardens (Wye House). Well done to the Marlborough in Bloom Committee, our many volunteers and businesses, the Town Council staff and Grounds Team, Wiltshire Council, our sponsors and all those residents who worked hard to make the town look its best.
