Do you need financial help to further your education?
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.
It is currently unknown what, if any, community response may be necessary and what may be asked of people to help out others due to the virus.
Crowthorne Parish Council is aware of the desire of many of those who are well and not self isolating to help in any way they can to volunteer in the community, assisting those who are forced to self isolate at home due to their age or health vulnerabilities in line with guidance from Central Government concerning COVID 19/Coronavirus.
Healthwatch Bracknell, Bracknell Forest Council, Involve and the various parish and town councils in the Bracknell Forest area (including Crowthorne Parish Council) are working together on a co-ordinated response. Details of the scheme can be found in the link. If you would like to volunteer for the scheme, or need help from it, please follow the link and sign up.
