LITTER COLLECTION IN CROWTHORNE PARISH
Since the 25 January 2018, our Litter Warden has been out and about in the Parish collecting waste and recycling. The first month of litter collection has been extremely successful, hopefully you have noticed that Crowthorne is already looking much cleaner in the areas shown below: -
Crowthorne High Street (Inc former Rogers Way)
Dukes Ride (Crowthorne Station to Prince Pub)
Lower Broadmoor Road
From the 25 January to 16 February 2018, the following amount of litter and recycling has been collected: -
9 full 120 litre bags of general waste = 1,080 litres in total
7 full 80 litre bags of recycling waste = 560 litres in total.
The Parish Council will be continuing with this initiative, so if you see any locations within Crowthorne Parish which require attention please email the location and details to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Crowthorne Parish Council has resolved to support Crowthorne Reduce Our Waste (C.R.O.W), who are committing to plastic free alternatives and supporting plastic free initiatives within the village to create a plastic free community.
The group's aim is to campaign to make Crowthorne Village reduce its use of single use materials and to encourage refusing, reducing, reusing and recycling.

Celebrations and Events take place to mark the Centenary of Women's Suffrage and National Democracy Week
Last week a number of events were held throughout Bracknell Forest to celebrate the centenary of women getting the vote and the first National Democracy Week.
The Suffrage Flag was raised across the Borough including at the Morgan Centre in Crowthorne, Time Square Council Offices by Bracknell Forest Council and at Brooke House by Bracknell Town Council. This was part of a national suffrage flag relay where departments and agencies across government have flown the flag and hosted wider events to celebrate the centenary.
Councillors also visited Wildmoor Heath Primary School in Crowthorne and Uplands Primary School in Sandhurst to talk about Women's Suffrage, democracy and fairness. Children learnt about the suffrage moment, took part in a mock ballot and discussed what fairness meant to them. They were also given a gift of a commemorative pin badge to celebrate the occasion.
This year marks 100 years since the Representation of the People Act 1918. The act gave women over 30 who owned property the right to vote, and eventually led to women getting full suffrage in 1928. The act also allowed men over the age of 21 to vote.
Further events will be taking place throughout the year including the siting of a permanent commemorative plaque in Crowthorne and Bracknell Town, a celebratory Tea Party at The Elms, visits to parliament for local schools and visits from local lecturers to Edgbarrow School on the impact of WW1 on the Suffrage Movement.
The events were held in conjunction with Bracknell Forest Council and the Women's Vote Centenary Grant Fund.
Crowthorne Parish Council is awarded Foundation Status under Local Council Award Scheme
