The Council and public gathered at the Morgan Centre last night had the privilege of listening to inspiring and
informative talks by: -

- Jane Gates OBE - about the incredible selfless efforts that she and her family, fundraisers and supporters have undertaken as a legacy to her son, Sebastian, setting up the charity Sebastian's Action Trust and the Bluebells and Woodlands (Crowthorne).

- Richard Westwood - BFC Ranger - about the work that he and his colleagues undertake caring for our countryside and the local wildlife. Without them we would not have the fantastic green spaces, woodlands and parks that we are blessed with locally.

- John Allan - MD - Legal and General - about developing the community and surrounds at Buckler's Park, including the SANG, Community Hub and school as well as the social value work they do in the local community.

Council Chairman Cllr Bob Wade and immediate past Mayor of Bracknell Forest Cllr Mrs McKenzie-Boyle then had the honour of presenting grant cheques totalling £15,050 to 26 local organisations who are all doing fantastic work in the community. There are so many unsung heroes in our community! Some of the good causes were seeking more volunteers to help them with their services. If you have free time and would like to help a local charity, please get in touch via the parish council and we will put you in touch.

Important Information to Smart Meter updates for 2019 
As I'm sure you're aware, the Government is rolling out free smart meters into all homes and businesses before 2020. However, research shows that a huge percentage of the population are still not aware of the options available that could benefit them greatly and reduce fuel poverty, helping many families in the UK.

Working in conjunction with the smart meter authorities nationwide, we are ensuring that all local councils have the up to date, correct information on their websites to ensure we are fully prepared as a nation for this switch. Provided below are links to full guides domestic and non-domestic smart meters handed to us by the Government.

As the rollout is due next year, please treat this as a matter of urgency.
Could you please advise once this has been done so I am able to update my database accordingly.

Please get in touch if you require any further assistance.
