IN this week's Newbury Weekly News, Newbury's night shelter for the homeless will close next week as latest figures show an estimated increase in rough sleepers. 

In other news, West Berkshire Council has been asked to justify proposals for charging residents for garden waste collections. 

Plus, the council is to target its resources to tackle pockets of child poverty.

Meanwhile, a local dealer who recruited school-age boys as drug runners in the Newbury area has been jailed.

In this week’s Hungerford edition of the Newbury Weekly News, tributes have been paid to a well-known antiques trader who died suddenly.

Plus, police have appealed for witnesses after a dead horse was found tied to a tree.

In Thatcham this week, residents vent their anger over housing plans for Lower Way and there's a new head in town.

And in Hampshire, the County Council propose a Combined Authority and a Kingsclere student dances the title role in a ballet.

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

    There's lots of spare rooms at Englefield House! Perhaps Richard will help out.
