In 2018 Winnersh Fete will be on Saturday 16th June.
A traditional family fete with free entrance, parking and attractions.
The Parish Council rents out more than 75 allotments at its site off the Reading
Road. Plots are now available for Winnersh residents who wish to become allotment
Some of the allotments have been split into half-size plots which are more manageable
for some established allotment holders and provide opportunities for newer ones to
get started without taking on a whole plot (maintaining an allotment is hard though
rewarding work!). The annual rent is only £35 for a full plot and £20 for a half
All profits are for the Royal Berkshire Hospital appeal fund. This year funds are
being put towards the purchase of a scanner for breast cancer.
Charity Barn Dance
Winnersh Parish Council has a further vacancy for a councillor caused by the resignation
of James Bray. We wish him well as he goes off to university. A bye-election to fill
the vacancy will be held if, within 14 days from 18th September, ten electors for
the North ward of the parish give notice in writing claiming such an election to
the Returning Officer at Wokingham Borough Council. The formal Notice of Vacancy
can be found here. If no such notice is given the Parish Council may fill the vacancy
New Councillors Welcomed
Winnersh Parish Council welcomes four new Councillors to its ranks:
Cllrs Kiran Alluri, Vijay Bagha, Paul Fishwick and Ben Krauze.
Following resignations earlier in the year, parishioners were invited to express
an interest in joining the council and subsequently to make a presentation to a council
meeting. The council voted to coopt four of them at the September Council meeting.
The resigning councillors were Jeremy Curtis, David Green, Nick Kilby and Phil Ray
. They resigned due to moving away from the area or gaining additional work commitments
and we thank them for their considerable contributions to the work of the council
over the past few years and wish them well for the future.

Group, who presented the cheques to Sam Milligan from JAC and to Candy Kirkland and

Donations from 2017 Fete
The Council was pleased to welcome representatives from two local charities to receive
donations from monies raised by the 2017 Winnersh Fete. Just Around the Corner (JAC)
and Wokingham in Need (WIN) both received a cheque for £500 towards their valuable
work in the local community.
