In 2017 Winnersh Fete will be on Saturday 17th June.
A traditional family fete with free entrance, parking and attractions.
On Saturday 17th June many Winnersh and Sindlesham residents, and lots from further
afield, gathered for our annual community get-together and enjoyed all the fun of
a traditional family fete. The sun shone brightly for the fete’s tenth anniversary,
after some disappointing weather over the past two years, and made the afternoon
all the more enjoyable.
Fifty six local charities, voluntary groups and businesses provided entertainment
for the many hundreds of people who turned out to support the fete and free attractions
included a climbing wall, bouncy castles for all ages, a mega-slide and the ever
popular Circus Scene.
The Parish Council rents out more than 75 allotments at its site off the Reading
Road. Plots are now available for Winnersh residents who wish to become allotment
Some of the allotments have been split into half-size plots which are more manageable
for some established allotment holders and provide opportunities for newer ones to
get started without taking on a whole plot (maintaining an allotment is hard though
rewarding work!). The annual rent is only £35 for a full plot and £20 for a half
Winnersh Parish Council has two vacancies for councillors caused by recent resignations
and it would like to co-opt two Winnersh residents to fill these vacancies.
The council sits monthly on the second Tuesday of the month. There are three Standing
Committees and all meetings are held in the John Grobler Room at the Winnersh Community
Centre at 19.45. New councillors will be expected to sit on at least one of the Committees
and will also be invited to contribute to the two main events organised by the council,
the Winnersh Summer Fete in June and the Christmas Lights Switch On in December.
So if you are interested in serving your local community then please register your
interest with the Parish Clerk on 0118 978 0244 or at firstname.lastname@example.org before
the end of June.
Spring edition of Winnersh Matters newsletter published
The Spring 2017 edition of the community newsletter for Winnersh and Sindlesham was
delivered to most homes in the parish in early June. Or you can read the newsletter
here. We hope that you will find it informative and of interest - if you have any
feedback please send it to email@example.com.
An impressive display of birds of prey, Morris dancing and a dog agility display
were joined by local groups to entertain in the arena and our thanks to those who
came forward to compete in the wheelbarrow races.
The Scouts almost sold out of burgers, hot dogs and drinks while the Winnersh Churches
provided cakes and cream teas in the hall.
This year Just Around the Corner and Winnersh in Need benefitted from our central
fund raising while all the voluntary groups kept there own ‘profits’ which ran into
thousand of pounds. Our thanks go to Prospect Estate Agency, Balfour Beatty and the
Wokingham Borough Council Tenant Involvement Team for jointly sponsoring the fete
with Winnersh Parish Council, and to Earley ATC for managing the car park.
