The Nature Trail is a great way to begin learning about the flora and fauna in Charvil and some of the work being done to protect it. It’s especially suitable for young children exploring the country park but grown-ups will enjoy it too.
View from the Chair
From the Council Meeting of 20th June
We heard from several residents to the open forum at the start of the meeting, the issues raised included the disruption caused by waste tankers & large vehicles using Park Lane and the noise they cause, especially at unsocial hours. We are very sympathetic to the residents comments and pointed out that the Parish Council had opposed applications to increase the number of these vehicles using this route, however, there was little more the Council could do.
Changes to Councillors
We welcomed Isabelle Bray as a new co-opted councillor.
The Parish Council has been approached by a pre-school provider to use council facilities, we have agreed to this in principle with a possible start early in 2023. The Parish Council will be working with current users and the pre-school provider to agree how this will work.
Councillor Heath and the Clerk, attended a meeting which outlined a Borough Council proposed cycle track between Twyford and Charvil ( Proposed Woodley-Twyford Route). The Parish Council are very supportive of the scheme in principle although there is some discussion over the exact route. For more information, contact Twyford Together Cycling Group at https://twyfordtogether.org/our-impact/twyford-cycling-together/
Trees – Queens Green Canopy and Community Orchard
Councillor Heath reported the progress that has been made selelcting locations for the next round of planting trees and hedges around Charvil. He urged more residents to get involved and sponsor trees including helping to care for them after planting. He welcomed the involvement of rhe local school and the Guides, Brownies and Rainbows in planting and after care.
Jubilee Treasure Hunt
Councillor Walker was thanked for organising the Family Treasure Hunt, there were a few technical hitches but those who completed the trail enjoyed it; we hope to run a similar event in the future.
