Newbury Berkshire: Public space named in honour

Public space named in honour

West Berkshire Council has formally adopted a meadow in Greenham as a public open space in honour of an outstanding contribution to the community.

The area near to Mandarin Drive will be known as 'Audrey's Meadow' in recognition of many years of work carried out by Mrs Audrey Appleby on behalf of the local community, including helping to return Greenham Common to public use.
To encourage a variety of plants and wildlife in the meadow, it will be informally managed using grazing and sympathetic cutting.

Councillor Hilary Cole, West Berkshire Council Executive Member for Environment said: "I am very pleased that we are naming this space in Audrey's honour. People can use this attractive meadow to wander as a circular walk or a route through to the Pigeons Farm Estate and link to Greenham Common beyond."
Councillor Tony Forward, Chairman of Greenham Parish Council said: "We have been trying to think of a suitable tribute to Audrey for her unswerving commitment to the wellbeing of Greenham and its residents. This unique opportunity has presented itself and is absolutely fitting given her special love of green open spaces, flora and fauna."
