Welcome to Sulhamstead & Ufton Nervet Community Website!

WELCOME to our new website, completely re-designed for 2014 and for the years ahead.
Hopefully you will find this website much more user friendly, a key source of information about our locality and what goes on, in and around our two villages.
We want to keep you informed about current activities and emerging news items of interest that are likely to affect the residents who live and work here. We have set ourselves the target of keeping up to date with new information and removing items that are no longer current, so we will review items on a fortnightly basis.
Essentially this is a live site that you will find useful, and we welcome your input on what you want to include yourself and what items you would like to see on the site that are not featured at present. A contact form can be found at the bottom of this page.
Happy Browsing,
Bill Jones
Chairman of Sulhamstead Parish Council

Invitation to Berkshire Patient Forum Meeting

Our first Berkshire Patient Forum will be held at Swallowfield Parish Hall , Swallowfield Street, Swallowfield, Reading, Berkshire RG7 1QX on Thursday 5 March from 5.30pm to 6.30pm .

All health professionals, patients and users of our ambulance services are warmly invited to attend.

The patient forum gives the opportunity for health professionals, ambulance service users, representatives of local organisations and local people who want to channel their passion for healthcare to come together to address issues that affect health services in their local community.

It also provides a stronger link between the trust and its members and improves communication by keeping the local people informed of any changes and gathering feedback on existing services.

Make the Batter Matter for the Spinal Injuries Association

As a charity we have limited resources and rely heavily on the goodwill of the public and individuals like you to help us out.

The money raised from this event will help the Spinal Injuries Association offer support to individuals who become paralysed as well as their families, from the moment a spinal injury occurs, and for the rest of their lives. We do this by providing services and publications which enable and encourage paralysed people to lead independent lives.

Every year in the UK over 1,000 people experience a spinal cord injury and there are an estimated 40,000 spinal cord injured people in the UK alone.
