Community Awards - Who do YOU think deserves to be recognised for their good works locally? NOW is your chance to propose an award for a deserving individual or group working voluntarily in either of the two parishes of Crowthorne and Wokingham Without.
Crowthorne and Wokingham Without Parish Councils wish to give public recognition by an award to individuals who have contributed significantly to the quality of life in either of the two parishes by their public/community activity. A Special Award may also be given to a group or organisation established in either parish for its contribution to community life.
Crowthorne Parish Council has appointed Oneill Homer (formerly RCOH) as planning consultants to assist in preparing a Neighbourhood Plan for Crowthorne Parish.
A Working Group has already met to discuss the plan and outline the necessary steps for completion. There will be regular Working Group meetings between now and the formal submission of policies to Bracknell Forest Council which the Parish Council anticipates will be in 2018.
Would you like to be part of the Working Group?
The Working Group, which includes representatives of both CPC and the community will meet regularly to develop the Neighbourhood Plan. If you have a vision for Crowthorne’s future and are interested in shaping its development, then please email…
Cllr Tina McKenzie-Boyle was warmly welcomed as the new Mayor of Bracknell Forest at the annual Council meeting on 24 May.
Having represented Priestwood and Garth ward since May 2015, Cllr Mrs McKenzie-Boyle now takes over the role of first citizen from outgoing Mayor, Cllr Tony Virgo.
Councillor Tina McKenzie-Boyle appointed Mayor
Cllr Mrs McKenzie-Boyle said: “I am proud to represent the residents of Bracknell Forest which has been my home for nearly 30 years. I particularly look forward to the opening of The Lexicon in September and meeting the diverse communities, charities and voluntary organisations that make such a huge contribution to our Borough.
‘My charity will be The Fire Fighters Charity. We are hugely fortunate to be able to call on the amazing professionals of the Royal Berkshire Fire and Rescue Service in an emergency. I want to ensure that the firefighters of Bracknell Forest who are always there waiting for our call, have someone to call on when they need help and psychological support.’
Cllr Alvin Finch, also of Priestwood and Garth ward, was appointed Deputy Mayor for the year.
