Welcome to the 'SonningCommonParish' website.
(Things to do...)
Sonning Common Society
Parish Council Allows Public Meeting Recordings
Under new Government 'open society' rules the Council is obliged to allow member of the public or press to record or film all meetings, subject to conditions. A motion for the Council to itself record meetings to counter possible mis-reporting was narrowly defeated by Parish Councillors.

After decades of being the 'Voice of Sonning Common' and organising many activities for the village the Society decided to wind down late last year due to falling memberships. Residents wishing to join this 'Voice' in a newer format please contact the Webmaster as there are plans afoot!
Cold Weather Planning
Current forecasts are suggesting that January may be colder and whiter than in recent years due to an anticipated 'SSW' ('Sudden Stratospheric Warming'!) event up by the Jetstreans which control our weather. This 'warming' affects the 'Arctic Oscillation' and creates more wintry weather further South!
The Parish Council 'Snow Team' is fully prepared and more volunteers in the event of 'heavy' snow would be more than welcome:
Historic Footpath Stile Destroyed
A steel footpath stile which was part of the boundary of private property has been destroyed and dumped in a field by unknown persons. The footpath runs along side Kidby's Yard towards Kidmore End.
Yellow Arrows Outbreak
An outbreak of yellow arrows mostly pointing at BT pavement hatches indicates an imminent outbreak of digging as high speed broadband arrives.
Village Police Report Back
After complaints that the Henley-centric Neighbourhood Police reports ignored our village our own village PCSO's incidents reports have been reinstated.
