House Sparrows have been a most welcome neighbour throughout history for many of us, whether we live in large cities or more rural environments such as our own. But over recent years this dainty ‘little brown job’ has suffered declines, even in those habitats where they have thrived on our feeding stations and nesting features in our house

Over the last two years we have been gathering as much information as we can from residents across the Borough, essentially finding out where House Sparrows are still in good numbers and breeding, but even more importantly, where they seem to have disappeared. In these latter locations we will next look to see what might be done to re-establish them. This might include encouraging more feeding stations, or the installation of suitable nest boxes.

Let us work together to improve the lot of this iconic garden friend. And, if you're interested in getting involved in this or other surveys, get in touch at wildcookham@gmail.com.

This weekend is the start of Neighbourhood Watch Week (7th - 13th June 2020) in which we are celebrating neighbours, and we kick that off with a folding card (see attached for you to print and fold from home if possible) from us to you.

We hope that during Neighbourhood Watch Week you find ways to celebrate the neighbourly connections made in past and recent weeks. This can be by joining in with the Big Virtual Lunch edenprojectcommunities.com/your-big-virtual-lunch-pack weekend activities, displaying a poster in your window, gifting a postcard to a neighbour, or entering our competition.

To find out more information including details of our competition please visit our website www.ourwatch.org.uk/letsstayconnected. The competition provides an opportunity using cartoons to express what neighbours mean to you. We encourage you to share this with your community and join in.

Finally, but not least, we invite you to join us in a Facebook Live Quiz to be hosted by our CEO, John Hayward-Cripps, on Friday 12th June at 7pm. To find out more see our Facebook Event page: facebook.com/events/551427478871731/ or take part simply visit our Facebook page facebook.com/ourwatch/ at that time, ready with paper and pen.

Let’s stay connected!

Additional funding is nowavailable to businesses in the Royal Borough impacted by COVID-19.
 
It is aimed at small businesses who were not eligible for the previously announced Small Business Grant Fund or the Retail, Leisure and Hospitality Fund. The fund is intended to help cover fixed costs faced by the businesses where they can demonstrate that they cannot meet these.
 
The scheme is due to run for the 2020/2021 financial year only.
 
Full details of the scheme, including how to apply are now live on the Royal Borough business rates website page.

The M4 will be closed overnight in both directions between junctions 6 (Slough-Windsor) and 8/9 (Maidenhead) from the evening of Friday 5 to the morning of Monday 8 June 2020.

The diversion route for motorway traffic during this weekend will use the A308M, A308, A332 and the A355. This is the second weekend for work on the motorway bridge that carries the M4 over the River Thames near Bray.

There will be regular full weekend closures of the M4 throughout this year, view and/or sign up for weekly M4 closure updates from Highways England here. https://m4j3to12smartmotorway.commonplace.is/news

The Summer Reading Challenge has landed for 2020 and with it, of course, comes a brand new creative theme. This year, it’s ‘Silly Squad’: a celebration of funny books, happiness and laughter!

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, however, many libraries have had to close their doors to the public; which is why The Reading Agency has decided to go digital for 2020. That’s right, this year’s Challenge will take place online rather than in public libraries.

Whilst this is a little different to normal, the new online platform will help participants keep track of their books and reviews. It will be free to access and will also feature lots of games, quizzes and downloadable activities to incentivise and encourage children to take part in the Challenge. It should be a lot of fun!

Join the Challenge https://summerreadingchallenge.org.uk/
