I hope you enjoy this latest edition of the Slough Citizen magazine. Despite the British summer’s usual variable weather conditions, a bumper crop of events and activities have borne fruit around the town - including Slough’s Horticultural Show, the Junior Park Run, the market now on the High Street, ‘GoodGym’ volunteers cleaning Salt Hill Stream, and ‘Friends of Herschel Park’s’ Tuesday volunteering - all of which are featured in this edition.
The council has also spent the summer refurbishing Manor Park Community Centre and has been developing a ‘co-production network’ where users of adult social care services help shape future provision. Local young people are also helping shape future sports and leisure activities through the new Youth Advisory Board, while events during Carers’ Week in June provided opportunities for carers to access further support, advice and information.
Going into the autumn, the council will be moving in to our new headquarters on Windsor Road, a stone’s-throw from The Curve - its programme of autumn events and those for Black History Month in October, are previewed. While there are details of how to order tickets for the council’s Bonfire and Fireworks Spectacular on 2 November at Upton Court Park. There’s still plenty going on around the borough over the weeks ahead!
