Have Your Say Survey

Chalvey Community Partnership is conducting an independent survey which has been launched to gauge Chalvey residents’ satisfaction with their local area as a place to live.

The survey, which will run until October 31, has been launched by Chalvey Community Partnership.

Weather they live, work, or study in Chalvey, they are being invited to have their say about Chalvey. The survey will ask about a range of issues including what their priorities are for their local area and which services are most important to them.

This will enable Chalvey Community Partnership to develop a prioritised action plan which will be used to brings together partners from Slough Borough Council, Thames Valley Police, and others.

Chalvey Community Partnership Chair Mohammed Ahmed, said, “We are encouraging all Chalvey residents, peopling working in chalvey or studying to complete this survey, we want to be able to get real representative sample so that we can get true picture of what the priorities should be for Chalvey, we will be able to device an action plan which we hope to work with partners to ensure that Chalvey priorities are being represented . Our findings will be published online on our website to make it truly transparent”.

Chalvey Community Partnership receives trees from The Queen’s Green Canopy project

On Monday (November 14th, 2022) Pupils from Grove Academy School, alongside Chalvey Community Partnership volunteers, Chalvey Councillors and Slough Borough Council staff, planted 15 trees (5 crab apple 5 Rowan and 5 Hazel) in total as part of the Queen’s Green Canopy project in the school’s grounds in Chalvey.

The Queen’s Green Canopy is an initiative that began in May 2021 in honour of the Platinum Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II in 2022. Following the sad passing of her Majesty Queen Elizabeth, his Majesty The King, became the Patron and in accordance with his wishes, the initiative has been extended to the end of March 2023.

Chalvey Community Partnership Chair Mohammed Ahmed, said, “we are proud to be supporting the initiative and thank all the pupils and volunteers for their involvement in the tree planting.”

Natalie Wismayer, the Principle at Grove Academy School said, “We are delighted to be part of The Queen’s Green Canopy project and we are excited to see the trees grow over time. This project and the support from Chalvey Community Partnership has provided an opportunity for students to learn about cultivation and develop some green fingers. Our student parliament have been inspired to utilise more space on the new school grounds for further planting and we look forward to supporting their contributions and the development of our green spaces.”

Councillor Shahida Akbar who helped with the planting, said, “It has been wonderful to witness young people participating in wider tree planting projects, and we thank them for their hard work, along with dedicated volunteers from Chalvey Community Partnership. Our contribution to planting trees in Chalvey along with the Queen’s Green Canopy would not have been possible without them.”

More than one million trees have been planted across the UK as part of The Queen’s Green Canopy project.

New lights and footpath installed at Chalvey Rec

A project has been completed at Chalvey Recreation Ground to provide new solar lighting across the park alongside a new path, making walking through it at dusk and in the evening a safer experience.

The footpath and solar powered lighting were installed after the council worked with Chalvey Community Partnership and through focus groups and surveys (online and street based). The recreation ground was identified as a location that would benefit from some improvements to increase feelings of safety. This project was also supported by the Police and Crime Commissioner.

There was previously no path connecting the park’s main entrances and no lighting in the park.  Now completed, the path consists of 16 solar lights on six metre columns and a 1.5m wide tarmac path. The path has created a circular walk linking the park’s main features (playground, MUGA, and outdoor gym) and entrances, helping to encourage use of the park for exercise.

The lighting columns are 100% solar, there are no energy costs, the dimmer setting also enables lower energy consumption, the columns emit less light pollution, and they are less harmful to wildlife and the environment.

Mohammed Ahmed, Chairman for Chalvey Community Partnership, said: “We are delighted that the work to make the Chalvey Recreation Ground has been completed. Parks provide a safe place for communities to connect, enjoy the outdoors and be active. As a result of the new footpath and solar lights going up, we have seen a significant increase in the number of people using the park. Feedback shows that improving local amenities helps to improve the local area through usage and make it feel safer.”

Councillor Mohammed Nazir, lead member for transport and the local environment, said: “This project has already encouraged higher usage of the recreation ground, and will continue to do so particularly in the winter months, during the shorter days.”

“It’s great to see that by making these additions to the recreation ground, residents are feeling safer and enjoying the space more.”
