The Peasemore Good Book Exchange is now up and running. You will find a (rotating) book case and a book box (for the children’s books) in the back of the Church near the font. Please do go along, browse the shelves and borrow a book, we’ve tried to ensure there’s a wide variety of subjects and styles for you to borrow.

It is completely free so take as many books as you like and just return when you’ve finished with them.

If you have any books to give to the Exchange – novels, non-fiction or children’s books – then please leave them in the box in the Church porch. All we ask is that the books you donate are in good condition. We will check the book box and the shelves regularly to make sure that there is a range of titles available for you to choose from.

Many thanks

Prue, Lou and Sally

A note from West Berkshire Council, it looks like the recycling centres will be opening later in the mornings during the week from 1st April…..

Following our recent consultation, we’re updating the Household Waste Recycling Centre hours for both our Padworth and Newtown Road sites.

Starting from 1 April, weekday opening hours will now be 11:00am – 6:00pm. Rest assured, weekend and bank holiday hours will continue as usual and operate 9:00am – 6:00pm, including Easter Monday.

We are making these changes to increase efficiency as both sites are not being fully utilised, meaning we have several appointments unused every day. This will also see us save approximately £59,000 annually.

If you wish to visit one of our centres, please don’t forget to book an appointment and ensure your household is registered for a permit. Further details can be found on our website.
