More news, no ads


The Environmental Day, which will take place between 10am and 4pm on Tuesday, June 26, will involve a number of community groups, including the Willows Primary School, the Newbury Community Resource Centre (NCRC), along with West Berkshire Council and the Neighbourhood Wardens.
“We’re looking for volunteers from the local community to come along and help out with picking up litter, cutting the grass and weeding to make this a more welcoming and attractive place to live,” said Rianna Lynskey, Senior Housing Officer with Sovereign Housing Association.
“Local residents should contact me via 0845 6000 340 or come along to the community centre anytime between 10am and 4pm.”
A number of skips will be placed at various locations around the estate so that people can dispose of their unwanted goods. The NCRC will remove anything that can be recycled, such as white good and electrical items.
In line with Sovereign’s aim to promote healthy eating and living, it has invited the NCRC to come along and sell fruit and vegetables that they have grown as part of their Cottismore Project, as well as plants that people can buy for their gardens.
Community volunteers, neighbourhood wardens and representatives of West Berkshire Council will help with litter-picking, grass-cutting, hedge-trimming and weeding.
The Community Café will be serving a barbecue and refreshments, while stands will be set up to provide information on recycling, environmental health matters, and restorative justice.
The event has been funded by Sovereign and Greater Greenham Project.
