The Berkshire Flood Recovery Fund
Berkshire Community Foundation has launched ‘The Berkshire Flood Recovery Fund’ in response to the hardship being suffered by communities as a result of the recent extreme weather conditions.
Berkshire Community Foundation (BCF) will support community groups who in turn support individuals when they are most in need and at their most vulnerable.
BCF is also working in partnership with others to develop longer term support for affected communities, as they recover from the immediate impact of the floods.
Please donate online at www.localgiving.com/berkshirefloodfund or send a cheque payable to Berkshire Community Foundation to Berkshire Flood fund, 1650 Arlington Business Park, Theale, RG7 4SA.
Wokingham Borough Council has closed the road from Playhatch to Sonning Bridge for essential repairs. Whitchurch bridge is also closed for refurbishment.
We will continue to do what we can to manage the unusually high volumes of traffic being diverted through Reading, but motorists should plan for longer journey times until the situation returns to normal.
