A community meeting will hear how neighbourhood action groups are faring six months after they lost council support.
The Bracknell Forest Federation of Community Groups has invited representatives of Neighbourhood Action Groups (NAGs) and Thames Valley Police to speak at the Jennett’s Park meeting on Wednesday, October 24.
Ed Glasson, chairman of the federation, said: “It’s now been six months since the axe fell so it’s probably a good time to review how our NAGs are doing and see if we can come up with any ideas to help NAGs, which are struggling without the administrative help they hitherto received.”
Representatives from groups in Harmans Water and Martins Herons and Great Hollands will be at the meeting in the Jennett’s Park Community Centre, in Tawny Owl Square, with Thames Valley Police acting Neighbourhood Inspector Charlotte Parker.
Also speaking at the meeting will be David Little, of Martins Heron and the Warren Community Association, who will talk about the newly-installed solar panels at his community centre.
The meeting starts at 7.30pm and there will be a raffle and refreshments.
