Budget Consultation

With just over a week to go until our Budget Consultation closes on 31 Jan – if you haven’t already - take part & have your say.
Council budgets may seem dull but they’re crucial to everything a council does. They set out how we’ll use the available resources to provide the services you want and need.
This consultation is your opportunity to influence the council. It’s open to anyone who lives and/or works in the Royal Borough.
Your feedback will help inform discussions when the draft budget is debated at Full Council on 22 February.  
To take part, visit Budget 2022/23 Consultation | RBWM Together

 Our borough libraries also have paper copies if needed.

NEXT: Bird flu survey
Bird flu has been found locally so Defra has set up a 3km disease control zone around The Thames at Eton.
If you live within this zone & keep captive birds – in your home, garden, dovecote, allotment, smallholding or farm – please take part in this survey  by 28 Jan.
Birds include chickens, ducks, geese, game birds, aviary & caged birds, & racing or fancy pigeons.
Defra will use the survey feedback to advise bird keepers at higher risk to check the disease is under control.

And finally, here’s the link to yesterday’s Covid newsletter in case you’d like it:


I have attached reference numbers to each crime report. If you live in the vicinity of any of the crimes mentioned and have CCTV or a video doorbell, can you please check the footage.

Hi, I am Valerie Pike, Chair of Windsor & Ascot NHW Association
. The Association was formed in September 2019 and our objective was simply to help residents. In setting up the Association, we asked
How can each of us
·       help to make our community safer?
·       improve its spirit and neighbourliness?
·       help the Police to reduce local crime?
·       make our own home security better?
Starting up a Neighbourhood Watch scheme in your street is easy, and it’s free. Police statistics show that a Neighbourhood Watch scheme significantly reduces the probability of your house being burgled.
Neighbourhood Watch is about neighbourliness and making our communities and homes safer. It’s about being friendly and caring, and watching out for the elderly and vulnerable too.
Members of Neighbourhood Watch are assisted in a number of ways, including  having  free  home  security  surveys  conducted  by  a  local PCSO, to identify any areas in which security can be improved, and to advise  on  optimum  ways  to  safeguard  against  crime  and  improve personal and household security

But most of all Neighbourhood Watch is about helping the Police to keep us safe. They need the support of people who care. If that’s you - join us now!
Please contact us on and we will be delighted to assist.
