The BVRA annual general meeting will be held 11th November 2021 at 19:30 at the Barkham Village Hall. All residents are welcome to attend.
I retired five years ago having worked most of my life in IT marketing roles. I have lived in Barkham with my husband Martin for the last 22 years having moved here all the way from Arborfield! I am now at a stage in my retirement where I am ready to get involved more in the local community and engage in appropriate voluntary activities to “give something back”. Having enjoyed a number of past BVRA social events and activities the current vacancy for the Membership Secretary piqued my interest and I look forward to contributing in this role and the wider BVRA.
Congratulations to Phiala Mehring who is the winner of our Christmas hamper competition.
Mehing is pictured, having just been presented with the hamper by Suzanne Trigg, the BVRA Newsletter Editor.
The correct answer to the question "On what page of the BVRA issue 134, would you find Barkham Blue mentioned" is page 18.
Over 50 entered the competition, thank you for your support.

The AGM was not held as a Public Meeting due to the Covid 19 pandemic. Residents were invited through the BVRA Website to submit questions or highlight issues/concerns. None were received. The Committee Meeting did take place and any resident may request copies of the reports submitted by the individual committee members. This summary highlights the key points that were discussed and agreed.
