A Work in Progress
The Mole Road road works were completed ahead of schedule, but now we have two more
major projects in the area:
Arbor Lane will be closed between Bathurst Road and Barley Gardens from 25 July for
approx 3 weeks to lay new electricity cables. Access to houses in Arbor Lane and
roads off it will be maintained from one end or the other of Arbor Lane as the work
proceeds along the road.
Road Works - July and August
The A329(M) Viaduct will have major repairs from 22 July. A contraflow will be in
operation with a single lane in both directions, with likely congestion and delays
at peak times. The entry slip road westwards towards Reading will be closed, but
the entry towards the M4 and both exits will remain open.
Annual Audit Return
The Council’s Annual Return submitted for audit may be inspected at the Parish office
on reasonable notice between 20 June and 29 July. For full details see the Audit
Abbeyfield Donation from Summer Fete
A great afternoon was had by many Winnersh and Sindlesham residents at the Winnersh
Summer Fete. The fete had well over fifty local voluntary groups and businesses providing
a fun afternoon on Saturday 18th June at the Bearwood Recreation Ground.
There were the usual popular attractions such as the bouncy castle, climbing wall
and dog agility display as well as some new ones such as mini-golf and a falconry
display which went down very well with those attending.
There was no charge for any of the voluntary groups but the fete raised funds centrally
from the raffle and charges for commercial participants. As a result a donation of
£500 has been made to Abbeyfield Winnersh towards a memory garden at the new dementia
care home in Woodward Close.
Parish Councillors were taken on a tour of the impressive 62 room home before the
Fete Working Group Chairman, Cllr John Southgate, presented a cheque to the Abbeyfield
Operations Manager, Michelle Cox.
Another donation from the proceeds of the fete will be going to Reading Family Aid.
Many thanks go to everyone who helped to make the fete a great success again this
year, including this years’s sponsors Prospect Estate Agency, Bovis Homes, Bromley
Garage Services and Bulldog Triumph.
