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

IN this week’s Newbury Weekly News, a well respected, retired Thatcham businessman is exposed as a predatory paedophile.

In other news, an inquest has heard that a Newbury man killed on the A4 had narrowly avoided being hit by a car seconds before his death.

Also this week, a group of mums who first met at an ante-natal group 18 years ago and still keep in touch held an emotional party at the weekend.

Meanwhile, Aldermaston and Wasing celebrated a bumper 74th show; an ancient brewery may have been unearthed in Boxford and a protest was held outside Newbury's Sports Direct; we've got pictures of them all.

In this week’s Hungerford edition of the Newbury Weekly News, there is uproar after a dog reportedly attacked residents, leaving one man with a broken finger and lacerations.

In Thatcham this week, a petition calling for a bridge at Thatcham level crossing has been launched and plans for 75 homes in the town have been turned down. 

And on the Hampshire pages, a Tadley councillor fumes about the on-going waste war. 

Our series of articles on the First World War returns, looking at a Newbury teenager who was killed at the Battle of Jutland. 

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