Dear Neighbour

As promised please find below an update on the Maiden Erlegh consultation

Dates for Your Diary

Presentation to Wokingham Borough Council of the Petition.

Wokingham does not have a Council meeting in October, so the Petition, which now contains over 530 signatures in the paper and online form, will be presented to the Council. If you are available please meet at Wokingham Borough Offices, Shute End, at about 7.10pm for a photograph. The petition will be handed over at 7.30pm.

Consultation Drop In Meeting: Park Church Hall Friday 24th September

Come and discuss your issues and ask questions about the consultation. There will be members of the Parents and Residents group who will be available to answer your questions and help you fill out the online consultation form. The drop in meeting will take place at the Park Church Hall at the Park URC church, which is at the junction of Palmer Park Ave. and the Wokingham Road. The meeting will take place between 6.30 and 9.30. This will be a great opportunity to express your concerns and meet other like minded parents.

Wokingham Consultation Meeting: Maiden Erlegh School Friday 29th September 5.30-7.30pm

This is our main opportunity to express our opinions to Wokingham Borough Council. We hope that as many parents as possible from the affected area of Park Ward will be able to attend. We would like as many people as possible to walk to the consultation together as a community walk. This will really show Wokingham that we are together and determined. If you would like to walk up to the consultation together, please meet outside the Wokingham Road Fire station at 4.45pm. This will give us enough time to gather together then walk together to the school.

Consultation Document

Wokingham has produced a shorter version of the consultation. This can be downloaded from their website at:


The petition is still getting signatures, as I said above it now has over 530 signatures, but it would be great if when it is presented to Reading Borough Council in October it had more. If you know people who would still like to sign it, please forward this mail to them. The link is: If you would like hard copy sheets for your neighbours to sign please email me and I will forward a sheet for you to print off.


For updates and comments there has been a new website established:

Thank you for your support and I look forward to seeing you on soon.
