The SNG Commercial Support Fund

Do you run a charity shop that’s in need of a facelift? Or a community cafe whose tables could do with a refresh? If you trade for social good and have a shop front premises, then we might have the solution.

The SNG Commercial Support Fund has been developed specifically for social enterprises that trade from premises (owned or leased) within communities where SNG residents live.

We know that social enterprises that gain most of their income via trading on the high streets have been hard hit post COVID and grant funding for costs that fall outside specific project running costs are hard to come by. SNG is offering a grant of up to £4,000 to pay for costs associated with running a premises that exists for social good within communities.

We want to ensure that shops and other trading spaces set up for social good continue to play a long-term role in creating vibrant commercial and community spaces in neighbourhoods and continue to provide impact to SNG customers and communities. Organisations must be able to demonstrate that they fall into one of the categories below:

The Commercial Support Fund will close on Friday 1 March 2024 at 5pm.

If you have any questions about this grant, please contact our grants team who would be happy to help on grants@sng.org.uk.

soil conditioner give-away event

Saturday 16 and Sunday 17 March 2024 there will be a soil conditioner give-away event at the Padworth Integrated Waste Management Facility (IWMF), Padworth Lane, RG7 4JF, between 10am and 4pm where residents will be able to pick up Veolia's locally produced soil conditioner for free! In addition we will have recycling collection points for old or unwanted vapes, small electricals and batteries.


The soil conditioner is produced at Padworth from food and garden waste collected across West Berkshire and is being provided free of charge to West Berkshire Council residents through its partnership with Veolia.

Residents must bring along their own bags/boxes to load the compost into their cars and will be responsible for collecting and loading the soil conditioner from the site to their car. All soil conditioner must be contained in bags or boxes and cannot be loaded directly into cars.

No booking is necessary, however we will be asking that attendees bring along ID or a bill with them to prove they are a resident of West Berkshire. Depending on demand there may be a need to queue for the soil conditioner. We also ask that attendees only collect a reasonable amount to ensure everyone has an opportunity to make use of this offer.

 

Please note there will be vehicle restrictions in place. Vehicles listed as prohibited in the Household Waste Recycling Centre (HWRC) user guide on page 12 will not be allowed. No commercial vehicles will be admitted; this is for householders only. Residents have to take necessary precautions for carrying the soil conditioner safely to their vehicle. The event organisers accept no liability for any injuries that may be sustained by residents loading their vehicles with the materials. Residents wishing to visit the household waste recycling centre must still book an appointment.

 

More information including FAQ’s can be found on www.westberks.gov.uk/compost.

weather alert 


SSEN moves to Yellow Alert status in central southern England ahead of Storm Isha

  

  Please see below the latest update from SSEN

Scottish and Southern Electricity Networks (SSEN) Distribution has moved to Yellow Alert status in central southern England ahead of a period of severe weather which is forecast for Sunday night (21 January) and into the early hours of Monday morning.

 

Our current weather model for this region shows south-westerly gusts increasing in strength during the second half of Sunday, with peak gusts of 60-65 mph expected between 2100 on Sunday night and 0300 on Monday morning. Thereafter speeds will drop, but high winds will persist into the Monday morning rush hour.

 

SSEN has been monitoring this weather system for several days, and we have already activated our well-rehearsed contingency plans. We are bringing in extra teams to deal with any damage to the network and subsequent faults, which may interrupt customers’ power supplies. 

 

Our team that responds to customer inquiries is also being bolstered in preparation for the storm’s arrival.

 

We will now be getting in touch with almost 250,000 of our more vulnerable customers who live in the Yellow Alert area in central southern England to offer them tailored help and advice.

 

We will continue to monitor this storm closely as it develops, and we will issue further updates depending on the forecast.  

 

The same weather system that is bringing this unsettled period of weather to central southern England is also forecast to hit our north of Scotland distribution area; we are also monitoring the potential impact this may have on our network there closely.   

 

If you see any damage to our equipment, please stay back, don’t touch it and instead report it to us directly by calling 105, or via our Power Track website, and our engineers will investigate as soon as possible.

Can I ask that you support by sharing the following messages with your communities: to help them prepare for the possibility of disruption to supplies by:

road closure on station road 

The Parish Council have received a number of email and phone enquiries regarding the road closure on Station Road. Although the PC is not responsible for road closures, we do appreciate the impact this is having on the local residents and have asked West Berkshire Council for an update as a matter of urgency. Please see the link below to the one network which has details of all road closures, responsible body and timeframes.

Latest flood warnings

in the last 24 hours

As far as the ‘peaks’ of the rivers the Thames has now peaked in our area but will remain high for a while as it slowly discharges downstream. As it remains high it is keeping some of tributaries from releasing so they too shall remain high for some time and for the Lambourn and Kennet the levels are being added to as a result of the groundwater effect. Therefore, whilst it is anticipated levels will reduce most rivers in the area will remain high for quite a period of time.

 

We have had flooding across the whole district not only of roads but sadly in properties, we have also had flooding in areas which have not flooded before or to the extent we have experienced before or for a very long time.

 

Over the last few days West Berkshire Council officers and contractors have been working hard to assist where they can by engaging with other agencies to report issues, assessing flooding and putting in place road closures including footpath closures.  A list of the roads closed at the moment are detailed on our website: Flooding: Be Prepared - West Berkshire Council. We are aware that tomorrow morning with the number of roads closed or passable with care it may be a challenging morning, not just in West Berkshire but all our neighbouring Councils who have all been affected by flooding.

 

Over the coming days West Berkshire Council will be making more assessments as to the number of properties flooded internally (in living spaces) and preparing for the recovery phase as and when the water recedes to allow them to do so. Any feedback in relation to known flooded properties (residential and commercial) is welcome.

 

Finally, whilst we are in for a slightly drier period of weather it is getting colder with below freezing temperatures, we would therefore ask that people to continue to support people in the community, in particular those who may be more vulnerable.

Gigaclear works in the village

Following representations to the PC from residents and businesses we are pleased, and relieved, to report that Gigaclear postponed their scheduled work on the High Street until the PC have been consulted as to the best way to minimise disruption and facilitate diversions and parking arrangements.

It is anticipated that the work will be undertaken in February in a more structured and organised manner whilst retaining access for residents and visitors.

Village survey results

You may be aware that Kintbury Parish Council conducted a parish wide survey over the last 3 months to gather suggestions and ideas as to what people want to see being developed in the village

 

Thanks to all those who responded to the survey, a summary of the top selections reproduced below. As you’d expect there were many great suggestions, plus a few the PC can’t do as they’re not within our remit. 

 

The Parish Council is now looking at developing these ideas further. A meeting is being arranged, facilitated by the PC to discuss a village fete/event next year. If anyone is interested in taking part and being involved please let us know and join fellow parishioners at the meeting.

 

PC initiatives this year include tidying up the village entrance signs and gates, the first phase of these should be completed by the end of the summer. Likewise we’ll hopefully see some planters being installed shortly which we can evolve into the Kintbury in bloom theme.

 

The PC will be considering how we can work with West Berks Council on safe cycle routes and will explore the car club. Related to the latter we are planning on installing 2 EV chargers at the Recreation Ground later this year.

The proposed wetland will be within walking distance of Hungerford town centre, will be open to the public and will include an Education & Information Centre. The attached leaflet will give you more details about wetlands and our proposal. Kennet Valley Wetland Reserve 

 

We would like your input on this proposal. Your feedback is important to ensure we make this project as relevant and appealing as we can. Your responses to our survey will remain anonymous – only the statistics from the surveys will be used in any future material. It will only take 5 minutes or less to complete.

 

The proposed site is close to Kintbury so the feedback from the residents of Kintbury is very important to us in developing the proposal.  Thank you for your help.

Gladstone Memorial recreation Ground: Car Park improvements.


Kintbury Parish Council, acting as the Trustee of the Gladstone Memorial Recreation Ground, is delighted to report that the car park expansion and resurfacing at the Gladstone Ground has been completed. This project has been 18 months in the fundraising and procurement process and was completed at a cost of over £70,000.

 

The Trustee has an ongoing programme of investing in the maintenance and facilities at the Ground to meet our charter aim to provide “Outdoor recreation for the inhabitants of the Parish of Kintbury.” As well as the Football, Tennis and Bowls Clubs, the Kintbury Jubilee Centre, skatepark and children's playground are located at the site, so it was recognised we needed to provide enhanced facilities to accommodate safe parking for all users and visitors.

 

The Trustee would like to thank all who contributed to this project, including West Berkshire Council, The Good Exchange, local residents, local businesses, the resident sports clubs and Kintbury Parish Council.
