More news, no ads


July 2022 has been the driest month on record since 1935 according to the Met Office.

The landscape across the district has changed considerably in just a couple of months and photographer Phil Cannings has recorded the changes in the scenery.

He has taken photographs across the district including from the Greenham Control Tower and the diamond – now known as the John W Mello Field – at Greenham Common.
