A Caversham firm want to make a 49 acre marina at Tadpole Bridge on the Thames. WODC lowlands area planning committee are objecting tot he plan because gravel extraction will have to take place first a marina could be built. The decision has been put into the hands of the County Council.
Now 2021 and no marina has been built or gravel extracted.
After a very hot and dry summer the Bampton Horticultural Society held an excellent summer show although there were fewer entries in some of the flower and vegetable classes. The Lady Anne Montagu Cup for overall points was won by Mr J Horne. The cutting lists all the winners in all the classes.
