Village Pantomime - 24-16 January

SHADDO has been producing Village Pantomimes and various other dramatic events at Shiplake Memorial Hall since 2001. This year's Pantomime, Merlin, the Spellbinding Panto, is at Shiplake Memorial Hall January 24-26 with 4 performances including a matinee on Saturday. Tickets priced £5-10 are on sale now at Shiplake Corner shop and Binfield Heath Stores.

The panto is a great way for the community to come together and involves all ages. It is fun to be involved and fun to watch. We have a wonderful range of talent in our community: singers, musicians, actors, magicians,  artists and technicians ( to name just a few).  It’s great  to see these talents being used. A number of our previous members have even gone on to  a professional career in theatre and film  having been enthused by taking part in panto productions during their their childhood. 

Every theatre production needs an audience! Pantomime can’t exist without it.  Please support your local village pantomime and buy your tickets NOW ! We are sure you won’t regret it !

Seasonal Greetings & What Next for Shiplake's NP

It is Xmas Eve and nobody really wants to be thinking about planning applications and Neighbourhood Plans but we do live in interesting times with regard to SODC's revised proposed Local Plan policies and related decisions. Post the festive break we will update residents on such matters....the volte-face on housing allocations as referenced in the local press and its peverse consequences, serious concerns regarding aspects of governance related to the SODC's decision to approve the planning application for Wyvale and an assesssment of their impact on the Shiplake Neighbourhood Plan.

We do have good news to end the year with: the Retirement Village on the A4155 planning application (P18/S3210/O) has been refused by SODC.

Best wishes to all residents for Christmas and 2019, with a special thanks to the volunteers who do so much to make Shiplake the place it is.

Telephone Fraud Scam

We are receiving lots of calls regarding residents, especially in the Henley area, being called by someone claiming to be an police officer from Scotland Yard. This officer then attempts to scam the victim out of money by claiming the victim’s bank is under investigation and they need the victim to withdraw money to then be handed over to police as it may be counterfeit.

Please know Police would never ask anyone to withdraw money as part of an investigation or ask you to purchase expensive items. Please pass this message on to elderly relatives or neighbours, as they are most at risk. 

Kind regards
