Do you have any unwanted good quality clothes, shoes or accessories?  Silchester Primary School are having a collection on 16 and 17 June.  They will take clothes, paired shoes (tied together) handbags, hats, scarves, ties, belts, soft toys, household linen, curtains, towels and bedding.  Please bag them up and bring them to the school on Wednesday 16 or Thursday 17 June.  Just pop your bagged goods in the bike sheds at the front of the school.  All money raised goes to support the school.

We now have an Aluminium Foil collection point at the Village Hall.  Clean Aluminium foil only, please.  See Reduce and Reuse for the location of the recycling bins at the Village Hall.

Thank you to more than 80 of you who took our survey.  The results are now in!  You think that we should prioritise reducing waste and recycling, home energy and travel and transport.  For all the results, see What do Silchester Residents prioritise?

We are just starting, if you would like to get involved Contact Us, follow us on Instagram, Facebook or Twitter .
