Library Service

Culture and Libraries Manager at West Berkshire Council, Mr Paul James will attend the next Parish Council meeting on Tuesday 12th September to advise us all about the progress of the new library service and to listen to any ideas and concerns that you may have.

This is your opportunity to come along and have you say about something that affects you and the village.  They are keen to learn how they can best support residents and also engage with you and to see how you may be able to help them.


Annual Parish Meetings

Annual Parish Meetings (APMs) (usually held in April each year) differ from Parish Council meetings in that APMs are devoted to reports from the various organisations, clubs and committees in the village, to highlight what is happening in our village, and hopefully get more people involved in village life. As the Annual Parish Meeting is driven by the Chairman of the Parish Council and the Clerk, those not able to attend the meeting in person must wait until the minutes have been written up before being able to see these reports.
