CROWTHORNE PARISH COUNCIL AWARDED £5000
CROWTHORNE PARISH COUNCIL AWARDED £5000 POLICE AND CRIME COMMISSIONER COMMUNITY FUND GRANT FOR ANTI-SOCIAL BEHAVIOUR INITIATIVES
Crowthorne Parish Council was pleased to learn this week that it has been awarded £5000 by the police and crime commissioners community fund to spend on antisocial behaviour initiatives.
The funding will help meet the costs of additional CCTV, video entry provision, ANPR cameras at the Morgan centre car park and planned enhancements to recreation facilities.
The council, through its links with the local police neighbourhood team and neighbourhood action group is committed to preventing antisocial behaviour and providing high-quality facilities to positively engage with the community.
CPC is supporting BFC, as a partner organisation, with this initiative and has been involved in the consultative work and planning for the
‘Year of the Green Corridors’.
The YOGC project is important to Crowthorne as we work on the new Three Year Strategy for Crowthorne Parish which has a ‘green’ focus and also on delivery of the Crowthorne Neighbourhood Plan objectives which specifically provide:-
Policy C12 - Biodiversity
‘Proposals to contribute to, increase and enhance the natural environment by providing additional habitat resources for wildlife and green space for the community.’.
A whole wealth of activities are planned throughout the borough to improve and raise awareness of the Year of the Green Corridor - follow the link to find out more…

Enjoy new walking and cycling routes in
New circular walking and cycling routes have been created across Bracknell Forest, to encourage residents to make the most of the borough’s excellent traffic-free network, to stay active and explore the borough on foot, or by bike.
Routes range from 10 to 20 kilometres in length, and there are five in total to try. Maps of the routes can be downloaded online and there are also colour-coded stickers on lampposts along the way to keep you on track.
Cllr Chris Turrell, Executive Member for Planning and Transport said:
“The launch of these routes is one of the many steps Bracknell Forest Council is taking to boost more active ways to travel around the borough.
“We hope these routes will be an exciting opportunity for people to introduce themselves to the great cycling and walking network we already have…
There was a great turn out on Saturday for the long awaited Crowthorne Carnival. People lined both Dukes Ride and the High Street to see the amazing procession parade by, celebrating ‘The Platinum Years, Monarchy, Music and Mayhem. 1952-2022'
The Scouts triumphed with their ‘Singing in the Rain’ float. So despite the fine weather, everyone experienced a shower, or two, from a super soaker Scout, Cub or Beaver! Oakland Schools celebrated with their Ju–kebox-ilee with more than 180 pop and rock stars from across the Platinum years.
The procession finished at the Morgan Rec where burgers, BMXs, beer, and even bees featured! Cllr Bob Wade, chairman of Crowthorne Parish Council said “It is brilliant to see all the village out again, celebrating and taking part in this event. The dog show has been very entertaining as have the live music and the BMX display. Thank you to the Carnival Committee for organising such a great village event.”
Crowthorne Parish Council is awarded Foundation Status under Local Council Award Scheme

New path in the Walter Recreation Ground
The popular, local, cut-through to the High Street and pedestrian crossing, is now more useable throughout the whole year.
The steep, rooted path has been closed off for safety reasons. Please keep on the new path so the vegetation can start to recolonise the disturbed areas.
In addition to letting natural regeneration take its course, we will be sowing woodland wildflower seed which has kindly been donated by Wellington College. If the vegetation has a chance to thrive untrampled, this area will be a valuable wildlife habitat by this time next year.
Funding for this path was awarded by Involve and The National Lottery Community Fund. The Walter Recreation Ground is managed by the Walter Recreation Ground Charity.

Crowthorne Millennium Mural restoration
Community action is a core part of Wellington College’s Global Citizenship programme. Pupils are encouraged to explore and follow their passions, whilst developing Global Citizenship competencies and their own personal growth. Shreya and Amy have been doing just that by taking on a project a stone’s throw away in Crowthorne High Street. After noticing the Crowthorne Millennium Mural had weathered away, the pupils picked up their paint brushes to breathe life back into the 23 year old street art.
