A new community initiative is searching for more enthusiastic people to join them.
The recently launched Chalvey Community Partnership includes a group of community representatives who are dedicated to making things happen for Chalvey, as well as the council, Thames Valley Police, East Berkshire Clinical Commissioning Group, community groups and various other partners.
The aims and objectives of the group are to work in the interest of the community of Chalvey, focusing on key issues ranging from health and wellbeing, to housing and regeneration and community safety.
Mohammed Ahmed, Chairperson of Chalvey Community Partnership, said: “I am excited to be working with passionate individuals and groups who are committed to making a real change in Chalvey. We hope to work to develop a safer, stronger, and more resilient community through working together and taking ownership.”
Cllr Natasa Pantelic, cabinet member for health and wellbeing, said: “The strength of a community is in its people. This is a fantastic group which offers local people a real chance to be heard and to make suggestions to improve things now and in the future.”
As part of the launch, a competition is running for young people to design a logo for the group and win some prizes. There are two groups for the competition ages 4 plus and 11 plus, the logo will need to have either the words Chalvey Community Partnership or CCP in it – colours and design can be as creative as you want! Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for a logo competition submission form. The closing date for the competition is 2 April, with the winner and runners up selected by the committee.
The partnership is looking for new members to join or for any volunteers who may be interested in contributing in anyway. You can sign up at email@example.com
