The Santa’s Fun Run (which welcomes both runners and walkers) will see potentially thousands of Santas dashing for local charities – with an aim to raise £60,000.

This year the two lead charities are One Can Trust and Marlow United Charities, both centred on supporting those in need.

The frenetic Santa run takes place at 9.30am on Sunday, December 4 – with entrants congregating at Higginson Park, Marlow from 8am.

Marlow Rotary Club president Chris Kelsey said: “We want to create a fantastic fun weekend that includes teams from local businesses, schools, churches, charities, scout and guide groups, families, neighbourhoods, clubs – all running or walking for a great cause. We want the course to be a sea of red Santas.”

The organisers – all three Marlow Rotary clubs – are also introducing a carbon offset initiative for the first time.

All funds received via the ‘donate’ button on the event website will be directed towards incremental tree planting in the South Bucks area.

There are also some pricing changes to encourage early entries.

Entrants booking before November 17 will be charged £15 for each adult and £7.50 for each young person (5-17 years). There is no charge for under-five-year-olds.

After this date, the entry price increases to £20 per adult and £10 for each young person. Entries can now be made at www.santasfunrun.org

Theresa May launches Christmas card contest with 'Tiser

Arty youngsters are being urged to get festive for the return of Theresa May’s Christmas card competition this year.

The competition is open to children aged 11 and under who live in Mrs May’s constituency and attracts hundreds of entries each year.

The winning entry is personally chosen by the MP and will be printed and sent out with Christmas wishes to people across Maidenhead, the UK and beyond.

This year’s theme is ‘Christmas in Maidenhead’, with entrants needing to capture the feeling of the festive period in the town.

Entries for the competition should be marked ‘Theresa May’s Christmas Card Competition’ and sent to Maidenhead Advertiser, 48 Bell Street, Maidenhead, SL6 1HX.

The suggested size is A5. Designs need to be bold and bright and preferably done in paint, felt tips or crayons as coloured pencils do not reproduce well when printed.

Two-dimensional designs are preferred as glitter and cotton wool do not work when printed.

Entries should also include the full name, age and school or organisation (such as a cub or brownie pack) of the entrant as well as a parent’s name, address and phone number.

The closing date for entries is yet to be confirmed but will be in early November.

Judging will take place soon afterwards, and Mrs May’s winner will be announced in a future edition of the Advertiser.

The matter of St Mark’s Hospital – about which residents have been awaiting news for some time - was raised at a meeting of Frimley Health Trust on Wednesday.

As well as providing an update on Heatherwood Hospital, apologising for patient waiting times and highlighting some of the struggles the hospital trust is facing, the Frimley Health Annual Members’ Meeting touched on St Mark’s, following a question from a Royal Borough councillor.

Cllr Donna Stimson (Con, St Mary’s) raised the topic of the hospital, echoing perennial concerns by residents over its status. Cllr Stimson did not make explicit mention of its much-missed minor injuries unit.

The unit closed ‘temporarily’ in April 2020. Several members of NHS staff were redeployed to temporary roles forming part of the response to the COVID-19 crisis.

In October last year, East Berkshire Clinical Commissioning Group (which merged with other services into Frimley CCG in April 2021) said the permanent closure of the unit was ‘not being considered’.

The last update on St Marks was in January of this year. A spokesman for Frimley said that surges in COVID cases had caused challenges in workforce availability, meaning the unit would remain shut for now.

The Royal Borough of Windsor & Maidenhead is consulting until Friday 2 December on its Council Tax Reduction scheme for working-age applicants in 2023/24.
 
Council Tax Reduction is a means-tested benefit that helps people on low incomes by reducing the amount of Council Tax they pay. Councils must decide each year on whether to make any changes to the scheme.
 
In the Royal Borough, it is proposed that the scheme essentially remains the same, maintaining the maximum level of discount for working-age recipients at 80 per cent of their Council Tax bills.
 
The council is consulting on five proposed changes, focussed on simplifying administration of the scheme and aligning with national changes to Housing Benefit. Three changes affect working-age applicants in receipt of both Council Tax Reduction and Universal Credit. The remaining two affect all working-age applicants.
 
For full details and to take part, please visit www.rbwm.gov.uk/consultations or use the public-access computers available at all local libraries, where staff are happy to help if needed. A hard copy of the consultation may be obtained by emailing council.tax@rbwm.gov.uk or by calling 01628 683850.
 
Councillor David Hilton, Cabinet member for Asset Management & Commercialisation, Finance, & Ascot, said: “Most of our Council Tax Reduction scheme is proposed to remain the same, including maintaining the same level of maximum support, which we know will be welcomed in these challenging times.
 
“The majority of the scheme changes are proposed to simplify the administration of the current scheme for customers and staff, as well as align the treatment of customers where there is currently a disparity with national rules. We welcome people’s thoughts to help inform the final decision.
 
“While we have one of the lowest Council Tax rates in England, and the lowest in Berkshire, which certainly helps to keep down household bills, we’re very alive to the fact that the cost of living is rising for everyone.
 
“If you’re struggling to pay your Council Tax, please get in touch with the council as soon as possible, before you enter arrears, to discuss what support may be available, such as flexible payment plans or your eligibility for Council Tax discounts or exemptions.”
