Quince Players | January 2017 - Jack & the Beanstalk Written by Ben Crocker Directed by Julie Voice and Sarah Matthews 12th - 21st January 2017  BOX OFFICE  OPEN

This year the QPs are supporting The Cordes Hall as their nominated charity.  The Cordes Hall Committee have devoted much time, effort and indeed funds in updating many areas of the hall which has been the home of the Quince Players for more than 70 years.  The QP’s are very happy to offer the Committee the chance to raise further funds for more improvements to the lovely old building.  The Quince Players have also financed the refurbishment of the front face of the stage and updated the sound and lighting system so that other stage users can benefit from the updated facilities.

Charlotte Herring,  Resident in Sunninghill and Ascot for the past 11 years (prior to that, 6 years in Windsor).

" Having had a successful career in publishing and communications for 28 years, I now divide my time between freelance editing and managing rental properties in the area. I'm also a volunteer dog walker, often seen in Victory Fields. I'm just an ordinary member of the public, with a keen interest in local affairs. I have put myself forward to join the planning team at the parish council as I feel passionate about preserving the character of our villages in the face of ever-increasing development. While we can’t stop houses being built, we can influence what is built and where. I want to help in making sure that information on potential developments is communicated as effectively as possible, so everyone has a chance to have their say. I shall also champion the cause for ensuring that housing growth is supported by an improved infrastructure and community facilities, with a particular focus on managing traffic and parking.

I am an independent candidate with no political affiliations."

"John Gripton .

Lives at Red Wells, London Road, Ascot and has done so for 44 years. Married to Geraldine for 52 years.
Two children and four grandchildren who all live in Sunninghill and attended Swinley, Cheapside, St Michael's and Charters schools.

I was in the computer industry for 20 years before taking over The Station pub in South Ascot and creating JAGZ, which I then ran for 20 years.
I was previously on the parish council 40 years ago when I played a part in
establishing the Charters Recreation Centre.  I was also a parent guvnor for Swinley School.  I am a member of the Ascot Labour Party group and CND.
My main reason for wanting to join the parish council would be to fight for more support for Ascot and Sunninghill as I believe the Royal Borough is too focused on Windsor and Maidenhead.  These are exciting times with the new Ascot town plan, the rebuild of Heatherwood Hospital, Sunningdale Park development and the impact of the Longcross town."


The Ecology and Evolution Seminar Series is held in the Hamilton Building's Haldane lecture theatre, usually on Thursdays at 1pm.   On Thursday  January 19th 2017, Pete Smith from the University of Aberdeen will speak on Global Security of Food and Climate Change. Can we deliver nutrition security and climate change mitigation without wrecking the planet?
