In this week's Newbury Weekly News......

IN this week’s Newbury Weekly News, communities have told West Berkshire Council - "tell us how to save our libraries".

In other news, we have all the local reaction to last week’s budget and Richard Benyon MP defends voting for controversial cuts to disability benefits.   

Also this week, West Berkshire Council has said it is running out of time to build a new primary school in Theale.

Meanwhile, people from across West berkshire have helped to raise tens of thousands for Sport Relief

In this week’s Hungerford edition of the Newbury Weekly News, we’ve got the latest on the town library’s future.

Plus, magistrates hear a woman was shocked to find her neighbour using her stolen strimmer.

In Thatcham this week, plans for 75 homes near the Henwick Worthy playing fields have been submitted.

And on the Hampshire pages, an Easter walk in Hannington, starting in Oxford, will honour a World War Two hero from the village and raise money for a new sports pavilion on the Hannington field named after him.

Our commemorative coverage of the First World War looks at an officer remembered on Cold Ash war memorial who chose to fight alongside his men.

As always, there’s also a roundup of the week’s entertainment and sport, and of course this week’s £25 free fuel giveaway.
