Town Elector’s Meeting

Town Elector’s Meeting – Tuesday 25th May 2021 19.00-20.00

Town Electors’ Meeting – Your Town, Your Say

The Town Elector’s Meeting will have a new focus this year, looking back at the past 12-18 months and how the local community of Woodley has pulled together during the Covid 19 pandemic.

We want to celebrate the support and help the local residents of Woodley have received, and we will therefore have presentations from:

  • Jake Morrison, Citizens’ Advice Bureau
  • Peter Absolon, Readibus
  • Marjie Walker, The Link Visiting Scheme & Jayne Streak, Friendship Alliance
  • Richard Davies, Woodley FoodBank
  • Tracy Ward, Woodley Volunteer for Covid 19 Facebook Group
  • Deborah Mander, Woodley Town Council Town Clerk

The Town Elector’s Meeting will also give local residents the opportunity to have their say and ask any questions on the areas of Woodley that we look after. These include:

  • Centre Stage 
  • The Oakwood Centre
  • The Garden of Remembrance
  • The allotments at Reading Road
  • Community activities and events 
  • Halls for hire (Coronation and Chapel Halls)
  • Youth support work
  • Woodford Park Leisure Centre and The Gym on the Park
  • Woodley Town Centre Management Initiative
  • Local parks (Woodford Park, Malone, Wheble Parks & Bulmershe Open Space)
  • Maintaining designated bus shelters, the public toilet, street lighting, noticeboards, and public seating.

Do you have a question you would like to ask the Council about one of these areas?

Would you like to see more youth activities and events?

Would you like an annual Picnic in the Park or a Music Festival at Centre Stage?

Would you like to see any additional services or improvements to our parks and green spaces?

We’re encouraging local residents to join us on the evening of Tuesday 25th May at 19.00 via Zoom, when you will have the opportunity to ask your question. To obtain a link, please email

If you are unable to attend and would still like to submit a question, then please email or send your questions to our Facebook or Twitter pages. 

The meeting can also be watched live on the night on our YouTube channel

Please note that we will be unable to answer any questions related to Wokingham Borough Council and will ask you to contact them directly.
