New Constable appointed

The Town and Manor of Hungerford has a new Constable.

Julie Lloyd was appointed and sworn in at a ceremony at the Town Hall on Monday 24th October, following the recalling of the Hocktide Jury.

Peter Joseph, as outgoing Constable, is pictured handing the chain to Julie. Peter announced last week that he had taken the difficult decision to step down from the role due to ill health.

I am sorry to be taking over in such circumstances, however Peter’s health must come first.  I am honoured to be appointed as Constable and look forward to continuing the excellent work of previous Constables and the existing Trustees.
