Christmas Celebration. The annual Christmas Lights event took place on 28 November. We were blessed by fine weather, so the crowds came out to enjoy the hospitality of the shops in Sunningdale and to see Sir Bruce and Lady Forsyth switch on the lights. Sir Bruce entertained the crowd by doing an impromptu Q&A session including the inevitable question on the Christmas edition of “Strictly”. The other star of the show was Martha Collison, from the Great Bakeoff show, who decorated biscuits with the children in Fegos, while other children enjoyed seeing real reindeer and talking to Father Christmas. The children from Holy Trinity and Sunningdale Schools came to sing for us and bring on the Christmas spirit.The Parish Council was delighted to work with all the traders in Sunningdale, many of whom were open and laid on the mullied wine and pies for us all to enjoy.

Fit for Life is an RBWM project whose aim is to encourage individuals to be more active. The project will run for 3 years with a grant from Sport England's Community Sport Activation Fund (via the National Lottery Funding). Fit for Life Week, which will run from January 17th to the 25th, will allow residents to sample activities across the borough. In Sunningdale, Charters Leisure will offer Gym while Lynwood will have Aerobics for the over 50s. Both are free. Check the precise details in the leaflet (obtainable from the parish council office) or by looking at the getactiverbwm.org website.

SaplingFree Trees. The Borough is giving away 5,000 free trees on a first come, first served basis. There will be 800 available at Broomhall Recreation Ground from December 8th until December 24th, 2014. To pick up a tree, along with a stake and a shrub guard, simply cut out the voucher on P.31 of the latest Around the Royal Borough newspaper and present it at the Rec. The tree species available are native, both to enhance the underlying character of the area and to benefit wildlife. The Borough has produced guidance on what species will do well on which soil type. Click on the map where your house is to find out. Further information about the offer can be found here.

Sunningdale Park, owned by HM Government, has been the home of the Civil Service College and later the National School of Government since 1950. The site at present continues to be operated by our partners, De Vere Venues. At present the Government Property Unit is looking for potential opportunities for the future of Sunningdale Park. An information event was held at Sunningdale Park, Larch Avenue, 3rd – 4th December to update local people on the Development Opportunity Brief, which can be accessed from the front page of this site.
