Tenth Forum AGM a Success

There was a high attendance at the Tenth AGM of the West Berkshire Heritage Forum on 31st May 2019, hosted this year by The Old Bluecoat School, formerly St Thomas's Chapel, Thatcham's Grade I listed building. During 2018 to 2019 the Forum has carried out a further Local Listing Panel, and put forward five heritage assets to the Council,  the approval of which is awaited, and is setting up a working group to review the Historic Environment Action Plan (HEAP). Parishes and societies have been generous in their donations this year, and the Forum's finances are healthy as a result.

On 27th November 2015 a Local Listing Panel met to consider submissions for the former Newbury Carnegie Library, the Falkland Memorial, Church & Child's Almshouses, the former Thatcham Police Station, the War Memorials in Brightwalton and Bradfield Southend, and a milestone on the old Newbury to Oxford coaching route at Chieveley.
