A tribute to Roger Thompson

Hungerford Town Council


Hungerford Town Council wishes to pay its respects to Roger Thompson who sadly passed away on the 7th July.

Roger moved to Hungerford in 1984 and originally joined the Council in 2005, later returning to serve as Deputy Mayor in 2014 and to Chair the Highways & Transport Committee. He was passionate about local theatre and was instrumental in obtaining premises for Community of Hungerford Theatre Company to store all their equipment. He regularly spoke about his love of sailing and trips in the Solent. More recently Roger was involved in the U3A writing group and had written a book called 'Never give up’ about his father’s life. He also enjoyed writing poetry.

Roger had a fantastic sense of humour. He was great fun but also a very kind and thoughtful man. He was a character larger than life and will be sadly missed. Our thoughts are with his family and friends.
