Loddon Valley Link


simonWelcome to the May edition of the Loddon Valley Link. I’m sitting here looking out at a lovely warm sunny day contemplating a trip to Palma later this month where it’s currently cold and blustery. Perhaps I should stay at home for the tan.

New Borough Councillors in our area are up for election on 2nd May. Summer is almost upon us with quite a number of fetes and activities so lots of dates for your diaries across the area. We have all the usual reports plus a centre page spread from Natalie Larner about her trip on Route 66. Looks fantastic and if anyone else would like to share their trip of a lifetime then please drop us a line.may19contents

I’m delighted to report that Stratfield Turgis & some Hartley Wespall residents can now get Faster Broadband with the recent connection of cabinet 3 at Turgis Green. The traffic jams were worth it (p42). Also in Stratfield Turgis we’ve got another village walk planned on the 5th May. All welcome (p43) and keeping it just down the road Hartley Mill is opening its doors to the public once again for their Charity Regatta next month (p42).

In Sherfield Village Percy’s plant sale needs your support so please go along to this long standing village event (p38) and the Village Hall is looking for volunteers (p13),. Loddon Quilters have their annual show (p12). The villagers are opening their gardens supporting Oliver Warner (p36) as is Bramley school with something a bit different (p42). The fete features on the back cover.

Sherfield Park are looking forward to Sherfest plus a pub night coming soon (p20).

This month's cover picture of the view over Bow Grove was taken by Mike Ralph. We’ll be running our cover picture competition again this year so keep your images coming in.Send your articles, comments and pictures (especially for the cover) to This email address is being protected from spambots.
