We all saw that the parade was led with great enthusiasm by Scouts, Cubs, Beavers, Guides and Brownies. The participants were not only from Mortimer but also from Burghfield, Sulhampstead and Ufton Nervet. Neil Johnson, who organised this part of the parade, has pointed out that this was the first time since the 1968 St George’s parade in Theale that these groups had paraded together. Due to changes in the scouting world after that, the respective groups chose different paths. So, this joint parade was a moment in history.
I am sure Mortimer will remember the Platinum Jubilee celebrations for a long time! As Chairman of the Parish Council it is really great to read so many messages of thanks to all involved.
Calling all eco-conscious independent cafes, restaurants and pubs.
West Berkshire Council’s Economic Development and Environment team are working on a campaign called ‘Dine Out Sustainably in West Berkshire’. This is aimed at promoting sustainable food and drink businesses in the District.
There will be temporary traffic management including signals along The Street, Mortimer. The work will take place between Wednesday the 8th of June and Friday the 10th of June 2022.
The temporary traffic management is required in order to protect the work force undertaking the work including hedge cutting and disposal, along on the footway. The work will take place along a 300m section from Strawberry Fields to Kiln Lane.
