The Team

We are immensely grateful to the following people who volunteer so selflessly on the Festival Committee

Chairperson - Caroline Lumley

As Chair my role is to support the Festival team and to make sure it functions efficiently.

I preside over meetings and preparation activities and make sure that all voices are heard and all relevant matters discussed.

After a long career in Sales and Marketing Management followed by running my own Management Training Consultancy, it is delightful in my retirement to give my time and experience to the Festival.

I have lived in Hungerford for over 25 years and have been associated with Hungerford Summer Festival for many of those years

Sponsorship Co-ordinator - Jane Mills

As Sponsorship Co-ordinator, my role is to contact and liaise with local businesses and individuals in order to raise as much financial support as possible. Without the generous contributions from all our sponsors and donors, the Hungerford Summer Festival would not be able to survive.

I moved to Hungerford just before Coronavirus arrived and was disappointed that all cultural activities were cancelled the first year I lived here. Therefore, when I saw a poster advertising for volunteers to get the Festival up and running again in 2021, I thought it was a very worthwhile cause to dedicate some time to. Although not ever having been involved directly in fundraising, I worked at the University of Reading for many years, taking on a variety of different roles.

I am a long term resident of Hungerford and am involved in many town activities, working as a volunteer at the Red Cross and offering my services to ecological and environmental initiatives. As Events Manager it is my goal to otrganise a diverse range of events that engage and involve as many people as possible from across Hungerford and the surrounding villages.

I have lived in Hungerford for over 33 years and enjoying retirement after a successful sales career.

Treasurer - Jeannette Baxter

As Treasurer my role is to support the other Officers and Committee of the Festival by keeping financial records up to date so that good decisions can be made by all members. At the end of the Festival it is my responsibility to ensure that accurate accounts are prepared and accepted by the Committee, so that future funding and sponsorship can be achieved.

With the experience gained from running my own business for over 30 years, currently keeping accounts for a variety of clients, I feel able to give the Hungerford Summer Festival the benefit of my experience and I feel privileged to have been invited to take up this role.
