Geoff and Carole have supported Tilehurst Globe for many years. They now need our support. You will have seen that there was a terrible fire at the top of Norcot on Tuesday. The fire has hit them badly.
There is one specific thing that you can help with now.
Carole posted this on Nextdoor and I am putting the post here too:
"Good morning, after the terrible fire yesterday, we lost everything.... we were in the prosses of making poppies for Turn Tilehurst red, over 300 poppies were made but sadly we have lost them, could people please keep plastic bottles cut the bottoms off (about 3 inch from bottom) thats the bit we need. and drop them off to the hardware shop or paper shop thanks in advance"
So we hope that you can help them. It is a small but very worthwhile thing to do, so just do it.
We have moved the answers to the quiz to our events page. Click here to see.

GLOBE stands for Go Local on a Better Environment.
Globe groups were set up across Reading in 1994 as part of Reading Borough Council's response to the Rio summit, where world leaders met to discuss global environment issues.
The Tilehurst Globe group takes action on a wide range of local environmental issues. These include the cleanliness and safety of Tilehurst's streets and open spaces and support for allotment holders.
One such project is a guide to exploring Tilehurst's woodlands and parks. The web site for this guide is www.walkontheweb.org.uk.
We have also been working on a project to collect local people's memories and recollections of Tilehurst when they were growing up. We have produced a small booklet called Memories of Tilehurst and we have also put together a website www.tilehurstmemories.org.uk.

Reading Borough Council announced that as from April 2007 they would no longer provide the same level of support and partnership for the Reading Globe groups. They have given us a small grant, and we now continue as an independent group. We are are proud of our achievements and are committed to continuing to work with the people of Tilehurst to provide a forum for their views and undertake projects for the benefit of everyone.
We continue to 'work to develop a community vision for Tilehurst', and to 'go local on a better environment'. We want to communicate with as many local residents and businesses as possible. So if you want to information about what we do, please take a little time to fill in the questionnaire to help us plan our future.
We have received fantastic support from local businesses. Many have become sponsors (see panel on left) and have pledged to help us. We are immensely grateful to them. If you are a local business and wish to help us, don't hold back!
