Volunteers have made a good start in adopting the stretch of Kennet and Avon Canal as it flows through Kintbury.
Flower boxes have been constructed and planted, a new cabin has been sited for volunteers use, hedges have been laid and plans are taking shape to improve the wooded area between the Canal and the car park with paths to be constructed and more woodland species of plants to be provided.
More volunteers are needed and the next day that help is needed is on Wednesday 21 June  11am - 3pm or as much time as you are able to give. There will also be a volunteers day on Saturday 1 July  11am - 3pm.
No experience is necessary and all tools are provided along with a cup of coffee or tea during breaks.
Just turn up on the day. parking will be available through the double gates at the end of the car park.
Update 25 March 2020 - The usual Wednesday morning at the canal has been suspended for the time being because of the Virus and the need for distances to be kept.

Public Conveniences - Consultation

posted 22 Aug 2014, 14:13 by Kintbury Parish Council   [ updated 13 Feb 2015, 05:15 ]

The Public Conveniences, by the level crossing, are under threat of closure by West Berkshire Council at the end of September 2014 and Kintbury Parish Council has agreed to pay for them to stay open from 1 October 2014 to 31 March 2015. The Canal and River Trust has agreed to provide additional funding to reduce the burden on the Parish Council and Council Tax payers.

The Parish Council would like to hear whether Kintbury residents would like the Parish Council to continue to pay for the Conveniences after April 2015 or whether they should be closed.

Whilst the current cost of £12,600 per annum is likely to increase by inflation over the years, the Parish Council intends to keep the costs as low as possible and seek funding from elsewhere. About £2,000 per annum has been promised by the Canal and River Trust so Kintbury Parish Council would have to meet the remainder. This would mean that each household in Kintbury would have to pay, on average, £10 a year in Council tax to keep the facilities open.

The Conveniences are felt to be an important facility for the Village, train passengers and visitors and the Parish Council would like to continue to keep them open and has the option to buy them from West Berks Council at nil cost. This would mean that the Parish Council could improve the area and meet other aspirations, which are included in the Parish Plan, relating to the area around the Canal and Lock, making it a more desirable space for residents and visitors alike.

Should Kintbury Parish Council keep the conveniences open?

The Parish Council would like to know what villagers think about this and welcome their comments before making a decision. Please send your comments via email to kintburyparishcouncil@gmail.com or in writing to be posted in the Response Box at the Corner Stores no later than 30 September 2014.

Thank you.

Miss Lawrence's Field - Public Consultation

posted 3 Nov 2013, 13:53 by Kintbury Parish Council   [ updated 13 Feb 2015, 05:15 ]

All households in Kintbury should now have received a copy of the leaflet shown below (please click on the picture to enlarge).


Our aim is to ensure that the Parish Council has as full a picture as possible of the views of Kintbury Parish before taking steps to improve Miss Lawrence's Field. We are therefore asking that everyone feel free to communicate their opinions, whether by email to 

kintburyparishcouncil@gmail.com

or by means of the Response Box at the Corner Stores.

We will be collating the responses soon after 1st December 2013, and will communicate again on this website and in the Fisherman with a consensus.





You are always welcome to attend the Parish Council meetings, which are generally held at the Coronation Hall at 7.30 pm on the first Thursday of the month (exact dates here) if you would like to discuss the matter of the Field, or any other matter concerning the village.

Thank you for your input into this project, from which we will all benefit.
