What we do

Despite being more than 800 years old, the Town & Manor of Hungerford is as busy and vibrant today as it’s ever been. While much of our focus is on protecting and preserving the incredible wildlife and countryside around us, we’re also active within Hungerford, working hard to benefit the community. Here’s a taste of what we do.

Charitable work & fundraising

Our funds are raised in several ways, including hiring the Town Hall complex, The Croft and Hungerford Common for select events, rod membership fees from the Hungerford Fishery, leasing the John O’Gaunt Inn, and grants from Defra.

Carefully managing our land and property means we’re able to create an annual surplus of funds, which is split between donations and investment.

The donations are given to local groups and charities, while the investment helps to maintain the Town Hall so it can be enjoyed for the community of Hungerford, today and into the future.

Looking after the Commoner’s Rights

At the very heart of the Town & Manor, from day one to the present day, is the protection of the Commoner’s Rights.  We work hard to preserve these Rights, so they can be enjoyed by the people of Hungerford today, and by future generations.
