As all residents of East Hagbourne are aware, the amount of traffic through our village has increased dramatically over the past 12 months or more. New Housing in the area, poor traffic infra structure in neighbouring towns and villages and Hagbourne becoming a ‘rat run’ have all contributed to our roads becoming increasingly busy. This has led to increased and inappropriate traffic speeds, and the inherent dangers these bring to residents.
With the support of East Hagbourne Parish Council(EHPC) and Thames Valley Police(TVP) it is proposed to set up a village speed-watch forum which will enable residents to effectively monitor traffic speeds and, where necessary, report excessive speeding by motorists to the appropriate authorities. To this end, I am looking for volunteers to assist me so that together we can make East Hagbourne a safer community. I am intending to hold a meeting mid September and then, all being well , starting the speed-watch campaign in October/November. If you are interested in assisting, please contact me on 07595 747644 or e-mail me on firstname.lastname@example.org .

It has been suggested that it would be nice to make new bunting for our 2019 St Andrew’s Church Christmas Tree and other Festivities and we would love you to put your name forward to help in this task.
We have produced an instruction sheet and a template to ensure
uniformity of size etc and would be very pleased to provide these and some material for anyone wishing to help make our bunting at home, which avoids having to take sewing machines, materials and an ironing board etc into church. Bunting instructions.jpg
We are also seeking materials, reels of thread and any other
sewing/embroidery notions you may wish to donate. Maybe too you have ideas for designs etc as we hope our bunting will be displayed and enjoyed for many years to come by everyone who loves and visits our beautiful church at this special time of the year.
If you would like to help, perhaps you would kindly contact as soon as possible Rosie Jackson-Kilham 01235 818020, 07942826282,
email@example.com or Sylvia Wilcox 01235 814648,
firstname.lastname@example.org and we will deliver the instruction sheet, material and template to you. Thank you.
