All six Thatcham Vision 'Action teams' will be meeting on the 9th February to announce the top action's from the plan that they are working on and to hear about how the 'Refeshed Vision Plan' will operate. David Conquest, Vision Chairman and Tessa Hall, Project Manager will inform everyone about how to report back on project progress. We will introduce the new marketing team and explain how it will support the teams in their efforts to complete 69 the actions that you, the community have requested.
Two exciting events are being planned for local residents and volunteers by Thatcham Vision on the 17th and 22nd October. Look out for us in the Thatcham Festival programme.
On the 17th October Thatcham Vision will have a stand in the Broadway. Vision members will be ready to answer your questions about us and what we do and also to note down your suggestions for making Thatcham a better place.
Thatcham Vision’s aim's are to identify the issues that matter most to the local community. We have started working on the 65 actions from our newly revised plan, but we still welcome your comments.
Following on from Thatcham Vision’s Community Survey, the group of volunteers responsible for Thatcham’s Parish Plan put together a number of focus groups or“Topic Teams” to further identify the needs of Thatcham. The Childcare and Early Years’ Learning Topic Team recognised a need for low cost events for children during the summer holidays. Thatcham Town Council had previously held “Play Days in the Park” to celebrate the Queen’s Jubilee and the Olympics in 2012 and this had been a tremendous success. playday image

In 2007 Thatcham Vision published their first report, a series of topics, projects and recommendations for things that could be improved within the Thatcham area. These include items such as cycle racks, film and youth clubs, sports facilities, and much more. The information is now five years old and a lot has happened, internationally, nationally and locally that may change some of the information placed in the report(s). As such Thatcham Vision is updating the reports based on information collected from a new questionnaire that will run from October to December 2012.
