The Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) for Thames Valley, Anthony Stansfeld, has launched a survey seeking the public view on an increase in the police element of the council tax by £2 a month*
On Thursday 13th December the Home Secretary announced the provisional police funding settlement for 2019/20. In response to the exceptional operational demands on the police, particularly in areas such as Thames Valley, the Government is increasing the funding available to PCCs by up to £813 million. However, this is provided all PCCs increase the police portion of the council tax by £2 a month or £24 a year (equivalent for a Band D property), which, collectively, will raise £509 million of the £813 million increase in funding.
To help West Berkshire residents to have a green Christmas and recycle even more, West Berkshire Council will collect real Christmas Trees from residents even if they do not subscribe to the garden waste collection service.
Real trees should simply be left with your recycling on your scheduled collection day up until Friday 18 January. Any decorations, lights and pots must be removed before recycling.

Christmas Carol Service (and after drinks)
Sunday 16th December - 6pm (following the Santa Parade and lantens)
This will be preceded by the lantern lit Santa parade as before (full details in the lantern packs sold door to door by the 'Friends' so please buy yours) which will end at the church in time for the service. We thought it would be nice this year if the younger children could wear Nativity costumes (there are some in the church if they don't have their own). The Benefice curate Rev'd William McDowell will be taking the service - some of you may have already met him at the Peasefest pet service in the Summer.
After the service refreshments will again be served in the barn at Peasemore Manor and all are welcome. There will be mulled wine, tea, coffee and nibbles for grownups and hot chocolate, squash and marshmallows (remembered this year!) to be toasted on the braziers for the children. A nice opportunity for everyone to stop and chat a while before the rush of the week before Christmas starts.
