Peasemore Parish Council Meeting
Wednesday 15th March 2017
Peasemore Village Hall
Peasemore Village Hall, Saturday 18th March, 2-4pm
With ever increasing traffic volumes and more distractions for drivers than ever its hardly surprising that many villagers have raised the issue of safety on Peasemores roads. We've escaped any serious accidents or injuries so fsar, but it may only be a matter of time before such an incident occurs.
The Peasemore Road Safety Group (PRSG) are having an open event to tell you all about it and let you have your say.
Yes, the “Boys” are back! New sounds, new line-upbut still proving there IS a cure for your winter miseries!
The Good Old Boys are performing at the village hall on 25th March
Tickets are available for £7.50 including rustic snack
Bar from 7:30, Music from 8pm till 11pm
Join Parkinson’s UK on Sunday 9 April 2017 when we will be returning to Welford Park for our sponsored Walk for Parkinson’s. There will be two different circular walks available, a 2.5 mile walk and a more challenging 6.5 mile walk around the beautiful Welford Park estate, home of the Great British Bake Off. During the walk you will cross the River Lambourn, climb the hill to see the impressive cricket pitch whilst overlooking the historic Welford Park, explore the wonderful woodland before crossing the fields and taking in the lovely views of the surrounding countryside.
Entry fee is £10 for adults and £5 for under 16s and all walkers will receive a Parkinson’s UK t-shirt, plus a medal on completing the walk.
The funds raised from the Walk for Parkinson’s – Welford Park will go to Parkinson’s UK to support the vital research work taking place to find a cure for Parkinson’s and improve the lives of the 127,000 people in the UK who are affected by the condition. We support those living with Parkinson’s and their families and friends, so that no one has to face Parkinson’s alone.
M4 Junctions 12 to 13: Redhill and Dark Lane (Bradfield) – Bridge Refurbishment
Long-term monitoring has found that the two bridges which carry the M4 over Ashampstead Road and Dark Lane, near Bradfield in West Berkshire, require extensive repair due to chloride-induced corrosion.
To address these defects and ensure the structures remain in a safe and serviceable condition Kier Highways Ltd, on behalf of Highways England, will be undertaking the following works:
- Replacing the beams along the central reserve and longitudinal and transverse joints
- Replacing the waterproofing material
- Replacing the existing safety barrier (VRS) over the bridge central reserve
The scheme is scheduled to start in mid-February 2017 and is expected to take seven months to complete. Work will primarily be undertaken during day time hours, however some activities will be carried out at night when necessary.
Fourth Special Concert by Young Oxford Musicians
Following their delightful Concerts in St Barnabas’, Peasemore in 2011, 2013 and 2014, Sophie Biddell and friends have a further musical treat to offer us there at 7.45 pm on Saturday 18 February. Sophie, who is Director of Music at Christ Church Cathedral School in Oxford, is preparing another attractive evening of light classical music, to be performed by young professional musicians from Oxford. The concert is in aid of St Barnabas’ Church.
