In other news, a second dog has died at Greenham Common after swallowing cattle feed pellets, it has emerged.

Also this week, there has been yet another delay to the controversial Sandleford Park development – as developers requested more time to iron out a number of planning concerns.

Meanwhile, we have a full round-up of this year’s Crafty Craft, and all of the pictures from the day.

In this week’s Hungerford edition of the Newbury Weekly News, Hungerford FC pull off another comeback win to take their place in National League South.

In Thatcham this week, the political wrangling over the future of the Priory may have died down but a financial and legal wrangle looms on the horizon.

And on the Hampshire pages, Tadley town councillors slam Government proposals to fast track planning applications, which could oust town and parish councils as statutory consultees in the process.

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