Crowmarsh Recreation Ground – new play area

Do you support the building of a new children’s play area and outdoor gym in Crowmarsh?

The old children’s play area in the Crowmarsh Recreation Ground is over 20 years old and in need of removal or replacement. We can apply for grants from various funding bodies if we can demonstrate community support. Would you like to see it replaced with new equipment such as jungle climber, swings, roundabouts, riders on springs and slides? Our plan would include an outdoor gym (training aids) and facilities suitable for disabled children.

If you support this initiative, please add your name to the comment sheet either at The Village Shop, The Primary School or online here: EVERY NAME COUNTS! Only if we have people’s support can we apply for funding to pay for it. If you’d like to help us with any aspect of applying for funding please get in touch with Andrew ([email protected]).

Local 134 Wallingford to Goring – bus service saved

Please note the termination of the current ‘Go Ride’ Wallingford – Goring bus service on Saturday 28th January.

After unsuccessful approaches to other local bus operators to take over the route, Mr Mike Ward, a Goring resident, has set up his own new company, “Going Forward Buses CIC”, to not only take over the route as of Monday 30th January, but also to increase the number of daily services. Two mini-buses have been purchased, drivers have been contracted, the service has been registered with the Traffic Commissioners and all other necessary arrangements have been made. The following timetable will operate from 30th January. Crowmarsh residents note the return journey is NOT via Crowmarsh.

Preparing for Winter

Do you need a little extra help or assistance should the parish suffer a power outage in the forthcoming winter months? If so, Scottish and Southern Electricity Networks would like to get you registered with them so they can come out and ensure you are looked after during a sustained outage. It is a free service, and any information provided is strictly confidential. See leaflet below for more information.
