Greenham Parish Council (GPC) has been asked by some local community groups to look at how the Diamond Playing field’s existing community building might be replaced due to its dilapidated condition. GPC have done some initial work with West Berkshire Council (WBC), who own the Diamond Field and currently manage the building, with the aim of ensuring should a replacement be affordable that it meets the whole community’s needs. This survey is designed to ensure we have gathered as much information as possible from our community. The survey is open to all ages.
Please complete the survey and email to email@example.com The survey can also be found on the Parish Council Facebook and Greenham Community Pages. Alternately if you would like the Clerk to email you a survey, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to request one.
Your input is valuable in helping us understand the needs and preferences of our community regarding the design and purpose of a new community building. This survey aims to gather information to ensure that the building aligns with the community's desires and needs.

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.
