2016 First Class supplement published today




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

IN this week’s Newbury Weekly News, we look at the potential impact of West Berkshire Council’s proposed £8m cuts next year.

In other news, read the chilling message to drivers issued by relatives of the family killed on the A34. We were in court for the damning verdict from the judge who sentenced the lorry driver. 

Also this week, plans to build a new state-of-the-art café in Newbury’s Victoria Park have moved a step closer.

Meanwhile, a teenage burglar who raided Newbury Rugby Club has appeared in court.

In this week’s Hungerford edition of the Newbury Weekly News, car parking charges are set to rise.

Plus, elderly people went without heating and hot water at an extra care facility.

In Thatcham this week, the future of the Priory looks set to be settled and a school is celebrating a good Ofsted award 

And on the Hampshire pages, a Tadley charity has revealed its latest financial position. 

Our First World War page looks at a baker who was conscripted away from his family and killed less than a year later.

And the moment parent's with children starting their first year at school have been waiting for has arrived; our First Class supplement.

Our photographer has been out to 72 schools across the area and the pictures feature in our 24 page pull-out.

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