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.

Survey reveals 90 per cent of residents enjoy living in Bracknell Forest
Bracknell Forest residents agree the borough is a good place to live; they get on well with their neighbours, are satisfied with the way the council runs things and can influence decisions, according to the results of the latest residents' survey…
Bracknell Forest councillors have joined forces with our parks and countryside rangers to plant 7 oak trees across the borough.
The trees are prominently located to commemorate the 21st anniversary of the formation of Bracknell Forest as a borough council. The borough wide planting initiative has ensured at least one new tree in each of the parish and town council areas.
Twelve councillors attended the plantings, which were all completed on borough land, with the exception of the tree planted at Morgan Recreation Ground which is a Crowthorne Parish Council site.
There is also a tree dedicated for the borough itself, which has been planted in Station Green, the park outside our Time Square offices on Market Street.
Councillor Iain McCracken, Executive Member for Culture, Delivery and Public Protection said: “Thank you to all my fellow councillors who helped plant trees to commemorate when Bracknell Forest Council first became a unitary authority, on 1 April 1998.
Our trees, woodlands and hedgerows are a valued resource for the borough, providing social, economic and environmental benefits. This makes them an apt choice to mark the fact that our council is still going strong, 21 years later.”
To complete the project, commemorative plaques will be mounted on timber posts, which have been sustainably sourced from local trees.
Our vision for trees, hedgerows, orchards and woodland in Bracknell Forest can be found in our new tree strategy. You can view our tree strategy on our parks and countryside strategies page.

NOTICE OF ELECTION
Crowthorne Parish Council Election of Councillors
Dated: 26 March 2019 T R Wheadon, Returning Officer
The pre-election period (informally known as ‘purdah’) begins with the publication of the Notice of Election for an election, and runs until the election has taken place. Within the Bracknell Forest area this will begin at 12 noon on Tuesday 26 March 2019.
During this period, there is a ban in place on publicising the views of political parties, issuing press releases or promoting initiatives with quotes and photos from a particular councillor or group of councillors which could be seen as unfairly promoting one political agenda over another.
The basic principle is that any activity which could call into question the council’s political impartiality or give rise to criticism that public resources are being used for political purposes or ‘electioneering’ is suspended for this time.
However, this does not mean that the business of the council will cease. Work to deliver services continues as normal and all enquiries made will be dealt with in the appropriate way, although some responses may not be possible if they could be considered ‘political’.
An average of approximately 1x120 litre Bag of General Rubbish (6240 annually!) and ½ x 80 Litre Bag of recycling (2080 annually!) are cleared weekly by Parish Council staff.
We are also fortunate to have a member of the public who has recently ‘adopted’ their street and litter picks it with loan Parish Council litter picking equipment.
The Parish Council has recently applied for a grant for additional litter picking equipment and hopes to have additional loan kit soon. If you would be interested in litter picking your street please get in touch on 12344 771251 or email the Clerk on email@example.com.
The Parish Council is also hugely grateful to C.R.O.W. (Crowthorne Reduce Our Waste) who litter pick different areas of the village weekly and organise ‘big litter picks’ for the whole community too.
Everyone working together is making a considerable difference to the amounts of litter we are seeing. The local schools are also involved with C.R.O.W. and we hope that by providing education about litter and pollution that we will see a reduction in ‘littering’ and an increase in ‘recycling’ in the coming years.
