CROWTHORNE PARISH COUNCIL CELEBRATES 100 YEARS OF VOTES FOR WOMEN!
Crowthorne Parish Council has marked the 100th anniversary of women gaining the right to vote with a series of community based activities, this week, aimed at locals of all ages. The activities were funded with a grant provided by the women’s Centenary Grant Fund…
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.

This is the year the people of Bracknell Forest, Reading and Wokingham Boroughs are ‘taking recycling into their own hands’!
The influential TV programme, “Our Planet” by Sir David Attenborough, arguably kick-started a new era of environmental awareness. Recent year, has been supported by peaceful awareness raising, by people all over the World, with 16-year old Greta Thunberg at the forefront. Awareness seems to be leading to action and recent research from Recycle Now reveals that over 60% of UK households are now recycling more than they were a year ago because of environmental concerns.
