July 2015 News

Petition
We, the undersigned, wish the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead to consider reducing the recently implemented 18 tonne weight limit on the Chobham Road railway bridge to a maximum of 7.5 tonnes.

We are concerned that the large lorries pose a safety risk due to the limited road width of the bridge causing the vehicles to cross the centre double-white line and limits visibility to on-coming traffic.

Download the form to sign here.

Signatures will be presented to RBWM cabinet on 28 July 2015. Forms returned to Parish Council, Broomhall Lane by 9.30am on 27 July or scanned to info@sunningdaleparish.org.uk

The Parish Council celebrated the accomplishment of Heathermount boys, Josh Giddens (pictured below) and Jack Wise, who had completed three and two years work experience respectively. The boys have been working with Graeme Kennedy every Tuesday learning the range of tasks involved in keeping the Recreation ground and the cemetery in good order.  The Parish Council has greatly benefitted from their hard work, while the boys have grown in confidence and skills.  They leave Heathermount to go to  college in the autumn.  Picture below shows Graeme making a presentation to Josh.
