Theale’s Future: Get Involved to Refresh the Parish Plan!

theales_future_logoTheale has a Parish Plan which lists some objectives to improve the quality of life and facilities in the village. These objectives range from: promoting access to locally sourced produced, to improving the transport options, to improving facilities for the younger generation…. the list goes on. The full list of objectives can be found here.

Theale’s Future was formed to create the Parish Plan and assist in achieving these objectives. The plan was last produced over 5 years ago, and it’s time it was refreshed.

To refresh the plan, we need the understand the view of the community, which involves creating a questionnaire and gathering responses, analysing the results and updating the objectives.

Unfortunately, Theale’s Future doesn’t have a large number of people at the moment, which means that what can be done is limited.

And this is where we invite more people to get involved. We need to plan out how to undertake the refresh, and create a new questionnaire.

If you are interested in helping to keep Theale a rewarding place to live and work, please let us know and get involved! You can get in contact by emailing tf@thealevillage.com, or by attending a meeting, which takes place on the third Tuesday of each month. The next meeting is on Tuesday 17th March, at The Bull.

We look forward to hearing from you!
