  • Thursday 10 June - The Street
  • Saturday 12 June - Car Boot Sale

Why are we raising money for Hart Wildlife?

Our Wildlife doesn’t get the support they deserve and is overlooked. We don’t realize our impact on the wildlife around us as citizens. Hart Wildlife rescued over 3,000 animals in 2020, With our help we can increase that number yearly through awareness of the charity. Over 50% of animals make a full recovery and can be returned to the wild, which as a community we can increase the percentage.

Did you know?

  • Around 330,000 thousand hedgehogs are killed on the British roads yearly. 
  • 100,000 foxes, 50,000 badgers, 50,000 deer died each year due to roadkill.
  • Rabbit populations have decreased 60% in the last 20 years.

Ask a Young Person - Thurs 17 June at 4.30 on Zoom

by Karen Taylor -

Cllr Gary Norman, Deputy Mayor, said, “When we asked young people if they felt listened to by us, your Councillors, they said that we needed to do more. On 17th June we want to invite young people to tell us what it is really like to be young and growing up in the area. We want to focus on the areas that they told us were most important; places to meet, mental health and inclusivity. All you need to do is show up and start talking, we are listening.” 

David Seward, CEO of Berkshire Youth, commented, “It is great that so many young people completed the ‘Make Your Voice Heard!’ survey and I would encourage young people to take part in this event. After dealing with the global pandemic, it is important not just for Berkshire Youth but also for our partners and supporters to make every effort to listen to the young people in our communities. I believe we should have young people at the heart of the decisions which affect them and should listen to and act upon their concerns, worries and ideas. I hope that these will help us find positive ways of creating a future for our young people.”
