WORKING TOGETHER

Work done by Southcote GLOBE over the years includes:

rescue                    
Each year GLOBE volunteers join with others in RESCUE, the Rivers and Environmental Spaces Clean-up Event.
We usually work on the Linear Path along the Holy Brook, across Circuit Meadows to Southcote Mill and along the footpath by the railway line to Southcote Farm Lane.
Since the installation of the gate across the end of Circuit Lane at the entrance to the Meadows, the amount of dumping has got less, but there is always work to be done.

KENNET MEADOWS
This area south-west of Reading has been under threat of development for very many years. Prudential had  proposals for a 7500 homes mini town with associated infrastructure for the area. There were serious implications for flooding, wildlife habitat and traffic problems in the proposals, which were opposed by Southcote GLOBE.
Eventually the Kennet Valley housing proposals were scrapped -  In 2010 the Regional Minister for the South East said that the Kennet Valley Park development was not viable. This followed advice from the Environment Agency and vigorous local opposition.
