What we love about Newbury West Berkshire.
It offers so much: good travel communications, only 1 hour from London and close to Heathrow, business and retail parks; racecourse, showground, theatre, cinema, arts venues, museum, library, international music festival, the Kennet & Avon Canal, beautiful countryside and villages, good schools and its own College, new hospital, top-class hotels and golf courses.
Why we're involved in the Newbury West Berkshire Project.
As the immediate past President of the Kennet & Avon Canal Trust, I am keen to promote the innumerable delights of the Kennet & Avon Canal as it passes through Newbury and West Berkshire.
