When I think back to holidays in my twenties, visiting the Greek Islands and there was always a bottle of balsamic and virgin olive oil on the table, sometimes entwined 😉 So today, 30 years on, when I start getting interested in how to reduce my timber for the good of my health I start… Read More Hemp Oil and Balsamic Vinegar on Your Greens
Sid had his second hair cut by Chloe today… he has a sister called Chloe so it probably helps calm his nerves 😉 Having your hair cut can be stressful for dogs and Chloe goes that extra mile to make sure Sid enjoys the experience, as best he can. Check out her Facebook Page >>>… Read More Chloe’s Dog Grooming: No Fuss, Just Fusses
Looking at the statistics for the RBWM Residents Parking Discount Scheme there appears to be learning to be had from Maidenhead residents about how to make the most of the Ringo App. Prices per hour are pretty similar, £1.60 in Maidenhead and £1.80 in Windsor. The first hour is FREE using the Ringo App. Currently… Read More How are Maidenhead Residents Maxing the Parking Discount Scheme?
One of the questions we’ll be asking next week at the World Cafe event is how would you spend £500,000 to help the Dedworth Community? The question is open to all but we are specifically looking for the thoughts of those under 30, who feel their needs can be missed… your chance to have a… Read More How would you spend £500,000 to help the Dedworth Community?

When did you last play tennis at Goswells Park, Windsor? Last week it was announced that the LTA were looking to invest in RBWM’s tennis facilities in order to improve the health of residents. See the story below the poll. If we take the funding, then from what I understand so far, an annual membership… Read More What Would You Like to See Goswells Park Tennis Courts Used For?
While at work yesterday a resident said the plans for building new housing estates could be off because the electricity grid is running out of power and can’t build the necessary capacity for 10 years or more! Googling around the topic and it appears to be a very real problem in West London, see stories… Read More Is the Electricity Grid Running Out of Power for Windsor?
Great to see Tiia today at Tesco Dedworth talking to local residents about Driven Forward’s Community Fridge on Oxford Road (near Boys School). The biggest misconception about the Community Fridge is it is for those who struggle to afford food. That is not the case, it is for everyone. The main focus is on PREVENTING… Read More Don’t Waste Food – Windsor’s Community Fridge
I contacted officers today and have put up a few signs at Castle Farm Spinney advising that all the trees have Tree Preservation Orders (TPOs) on them and if the new owner attempts to remove any trees there will be consequences. If you spot anyone chopping down trees at Castle Farm Spinney please contact the… Read More Castle Farm Spinney TPO Notice
Over the last few years there seems to be more and more litter picks but sadly they appear to be along political lines which, to my mind, comes across as virtue signalling and so has less value than if it was centrally organised and measured. I know of one Cllr who actually weighs his recycling… Read More Should RBWM Organise Community Litter Picks?
Please see my objection to the new plans for 58 Gallys Road… you can make your own comment here… search 22/01867… you can’t object to those things covered by the existing planning applications that have been granted.
