Residents in Ashford Avenue are calling for a 'Home Zone' area to protect them from through traffic and allow their children to play in greater safety. A 2005 plan to block the Baskerville/Crowsley junction has been cited as the way forward. (See 'Rat-Runs' - Proposal '10' in the 'traffic Plan' website.)
Oak Tree Processionary Caterpillars
'One-Stop' Post Office Miniaturisation
Annual Parish Meeting (May 13th,7pm)
Not to be confused with a Parish Council meeting, this is an informal get together to discuss or propose how the village should meet the future.
These toxic caterpillars are now active again (May-June) and outbreaks have been reported just up-wind of us in Pangbourne. Apart from damaging trees their hairs are toxic and can cause severe reactions to humans
Sunday 28th April saw the annual event start from the Grove Rd primary school again. With options of different distances to cycle, or treasure hunts to be walked, over 700 people took part.
The Pages Orchard play area, not far from the Baskerville Rd play area, is facing calls to be re-opened after being closed down over 10 years ago for anti-social activities problems. The land now belongs to a housing association.
