Latest Parish News

Exciting news of an archaeological site in Greenham being excavated by Thames Valley Archaeological Services with Bronze Age, Iron Age and Roman features!

There this a new housing development building built to the west of New Road, Greenham. Thames Valley Archaeological Services have been contracted to carry out excavations onsite and a wide range of finds have been discovered.

Further information will be added to the webpage http://tvas.co.uk/news/post036-Greenham.html as the work progresses, but there are already several round houses as well as the tantalising edges of two ring ditches on the eastern boundary, which could represent the remains of Bronze Age round barrows, but which cannot be fully investigated at this time. A very Late Iron Age or early Roman burial has also been found, with an unusual flagon. There are also features which are likely to be medieval, or post-medieval.

Many of the pottery and samples have been taken back for analysis by the finds experts, to be written up in a final report, with the archive eventually deposited in West Berkshire Museum. We therefore won’t get the whole picture for a while, but it’s an exciting glimpse into the lives of people who lived in our ward, from over 3,000 years ago up to more recent times.

In February 2020, the District Council approved the Playing Pitch Strategy, which is a strategic assessment that provides an up-to-date analysis of supply and demand for playing pitches (grass and artificial) in West Berkshire.

The District Council would like your views on the proposal for a new sports ground at Newbury Rugby Club. In particular, they would like to know whether you support the proposal and the construction of an artificial pitch, what facilities you would like to see at the ground, and whether this new sports ground would give you more opportunities to participate in sport and physical activity.

For full details of the consultation and how to submit your views visit https://info.westberks.gov.uk/index.aspx?articleid=37835 the consultation closes on 28th February 2021.


Alternative option at Pigeons Farm Road

Greenham Parish Council understands that the District Council's plan B is to use the John W Mellow Playing Field, Pigeons Farm Road. Greenham Parish Council is opposed to the development of the Playing Field for this purpose. If you would like further details of how to get involved, please contact the Clerk, Lisa Blake.
