Issue 151    December 1st   to March 1st 2022


This very well-established initiative by Newbury Weekly News provides Christmas parcels for those aged 80 or over in parts of the West Berkshire area.  This will be going ahead as usual this year.  Parcels will be delivered on or after 4 December 2021 to those in the Hungerford and Hungerford Newtown area of whom we have been advised of their eligibility.

There are many Hungerford organisations who contribute to the delivery including CHAIN who lead the Hungerford delivery process.  Delivery of parcels is undertaken jointly by CHAIN and our local Rotary Club.
