Members of the Playground Committee help to maintain the recreation ground, keeping it tidy and litter free. They also check the play equipment and carry out simple repairs, clean the sand and weed the bark when required.
if you have young children - or grandchildren - who enjoy using the park, why not contact George Englefield and offer to help? The duties are not onerous and working sessions on the recreation ground are fun and sociable too.
The grass is cut by contractors to the Parish Council. The Councillors are also Trustees of the Recreation Ground, responsible for maintaining it and the equipment.
The playground is enjoyed by children and their parents from miles around. People all over the village subscribe to a weekly rota to keep it litter free.
If you have young children and would like to join the committee or support the litter collection rota, please contact George Englefield on 9476830.
We do not now expect the Gladman application to discussed at committee until mid-June at the earliest. It is still opposed by seven local parishes in South Oxon and by residents' associations in Emmer Green - and by Reading Borough Council. You can still have your say on the SODC Planning website. Just follow the link:SODC link
As SODC can no longer put up notices on site for every planning application we have decided to publish them on this website instead. You can use the link to look up the application on-line and make your own comments direct to SODCLook at applications
