Save the date! Reading Pride 2018

The date of the 2018 Reading Pride has been announced!  If you want to come to the best (in my opinion) free Pride then pop: Saturday 1 ...

Then everything returns to normal

Well the election is over, votes cast, Cllrs elected and things return to normality. 

This morning Cllr Khan and I had our monthly surgery (see box to the left for future dates).  A time to help residents with their concerns and chat about Thursday's results in between..

Tuesday we have our first group meeting, now with 26 Cllrs.  A time to sort out who is on what committee, forum, panel, outside body and group.  Group officers are elected.

Battle Cllrs have a few campaigns already in progress: 
  • opposing the proposed gaming centre on the Oxford Road(open 24 hours if they get permission), 
  • ensuring the problem with bin bag mountains is tackled on the Oxford Road
  • tackling fly-tipping,
  • asking some serious questions about the local primary schools allocation and admissions this year and in future years and supporting local parents
  • attending the Tesco appeal
  • working with the local Neighbourhood Action Group on their campaigns
  • making sure dumped trolleys get collected (and Iceland trolley is currently residing round the corner from my house.  A rare site this far away from the store).
  • getting potholes filled 
 We are planning a few different things this year so keep an eye out for when they are announced and do get in touch if you need assistance.
