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 We have set ourselves the target of keeping up to date with new information and removing items that are no longer current, so we will review items on a fortnightly basis.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.
Chairman of Sulhamstead Parish Council
Advertising on this website
In response to requests from local businesses the Council has agreed to run some adverts on this site for businesses with local connections. From now until the end of September we will feature two local businesses to show advertisers what they can expect. This opportunity available from October 1st 2014. Copy will need to be in and the booking made by the deadline of one week before the above date. Your local community website has in excess of 3,000 hits a month (google analytics) and the council see this as an opportunity will be for local companies to promote themselves for a modest sum. Any money raised will go towards funding the council's work. Costs and information can be found by clicking on this link. If you are interested in advertising please send an email to the parish clerk in the first instance and we will be in contact.
A message from the Royal Berks Fire and Rescue Service
Once again, Royal Berkshire Fire and Rescue Service (RBFRS) would like to ask for your assistance in helping us to spread our safety messages.
As you may be aware, the Fire Brigades Union (FBU) has announced that further strike action will take place:
For 96 hours consecutively from 6pm on Friday 31 October until 6pm on Tuesday 4 November.
Over the weekend, you may be more likely to be at home, perhaps entertaining or visiting friends, or enjoying Bonfire Night or other celebrations with candles and fireworks.
On the Monday or Tuesday morning you may be busy preparing breakfast for the family, travelling to work and/or preparing for the school run after the half term break
Whatever you are doing during this extended period we would like to remind you to Take Extra Care.
Although RBFRS has contingency plans in place, during any period of industrial action we will have significantly fewer resources. We will therefore be prioritising ‘life critical’ incidents, such as house fires and road traffic collisions where people are trapped.
RBFRS will still be responding to 999 calls but we are asking members of the public to take extra care to reduce the risk of fire and road traffic collisions.
We would be grateful if you could distribute the attached documents among your colleagues, clients and other community contacts and mention that advice can be found on our website www.rbfrs.co.uk.
