Mayor Mervyn Hall, Lt Col Simon Puxley members of 4MI and Home Start KennetMayor Mervyn Hall, Lt Col Simon Puxley members of 4MI and Home Start KennetTown Mayor, Councillor Mervyn Hall’s chosen charities - Julia’s House and Home Start Kennet - received a military boost today, 18 April, thanks to forty soldiers from the 4th Military Intelligence Battalion (4MI).

In June 2011, 4MI Battalion were the first Army Unit to have been granted Marlborough’s Freedom of Entry to the Town.  Based in nearby Bulford, the Battalion has had an ongoing relationship with Marlborough, which is demonstrated by its involvement with Marlborough’s Remembrance Day Parade and other civic and community events.  A Community Covenant was signed between the town and 4MI during the visit of the Duke of Kent in 2014, reviewed in February 2018 and re-signed by the Battalion’s Commanding Officer, Lt Col Simon Puxley and the Mayor.
