The Seasonal Wardens for Greenham, Crookham and Snelsmore Commons are conducting visitor surveys for the ground nesting bird season 2023 (from 1st March to 31st July). We'd love to have feedback on your experiences on the Common during this time, your opinion on how it has been managed, what is important to you and any suggested improvements. It only takes 5 minutes, just follow the QR code in this link. The survey is open until the end of July.
On the 4th May 2023 Parish and District Elections will take place.
If you are interested in becoming a Greenham Parish Councillor, and would like to nominate yourself to stand for Greenham Parish Council, please contact the Clerk on email@example.com for more details and a Nomination Form. Nomination Forms are to be submitted to West Berkshire Council offices by 4pm on Thursday 4th April 2023. There are 10 seats available for Greenham Common and 5 to represent the Newbury Racecourse.
West Berkshire Council will not be using physical Condolence Books in line with Covid-19 regulations. We will be encouraging the public to ‘sign’ the official electronic version which can be found here https://www.royal.uk/books-condolence
Alternatively, you may wish to create your own electronic Condolence Book.
Again in line with Covid-19 regulations and the wishes of the Royal Household, we will be discouraging the public from leaving floral tributes. Instead residents could consider instead, making donations to a charity of their choosing or one of the charities or organisations which The Duke of Edinburgh supported in his public duties. More information about this is available online at:https://www.royal.uk/donations
Cancellation of meetings and events
We are yet to receive any official guidance on this but at the present time we will not be cancelling any of our Council meetings which are all currently held via Zoom. However, we will be asking our Council Members to wear dark clothing and black ties for gentlemen.
Two minutes silence and date of the funeral
As yet, we have not received any further information on when a national two minutes silence will take place. Similarly, we have no details of the date of the funeral.
In the meantime, more information on Prince Philip and his life can be found on the Royal Household website: https://www.royal.uk/
