Wildlife in Ascot is calling for help with coppicing in the Granny Kettle woodland along Whitmore Lane near Blacknest, on February 13th and 14th. There is a large number of hazel stools which have become top heavy over the years and coppicing is required to save them from toppling over. This will be done over the next few years as agreed with RBWM for this protected woodland. Coppicing is good for our local wildlife, it increases woodland biodiversity, as greater amounts of light can reach the ground, allowing a range of species to grow there. Many of these species are food sources for butterflies and other insects, which in turn provide food for birds, bats and mammals.
If you are able to help, go along any time between 12.30 and 4.30pm . See website for more details including a map of the location.
Please dress for working outdoors with gardening gloves. It may be wet underfoot. If you do have a pruning saw, branch lopper or larger saw to work; with please take it. There will be plenty of other work including making log piles for wildlife and fences to protect new growth from deer.
There will be a massive, Oriental World rug sale at the Cordes Hall, Kings Road, Sunninghill on Saturday 13th & Sunday 14th February

Tracey Williams (Associate Vicar, All Souls South Ascot & St.Michael's Sunninghill Parish, writes of the Gambia Project): Today I was given a box of Bunsen burners, magnets, assorted scientific glassware, litmus paper and spatulas and it felt like Christmas all over again! It might seem that I have a strange taste in presents, but my delight came from knowing that this was the first (we hope) of many donations of science equipment for the Revd J C Faye School in The Gambia. This equipment will be shipped out to the school in Banjul later this month along with four laptops, a printer and scanner, which have also been donated.
We are very grateful to everyone who has supported The Gambia project work in the parish in many different ways. If you would like to get involved and make a difference, we would welcome donations of pencils, pens and stationery items that can be taken out for the school students and teachers: Also needed are summer clothes for ladies and children, football kit for children up to the age of 18. The plan is to take as much as possible in our hold luggage. You can bring your donations to the All Souls’ Café any week-day morning before Sunday 14th February or to our Churches on a Sunday. Thank you and God bless.Read more: All Souls' & St.Michael's Gambia Project | Donations Deadline | February 14th

Berks and Bucks FA have confirmed dates for Berks County FC (formerly Sunninghill Saints) to host a fully licensed FA tutor Referee course this February in Sunninghill. This follows the successful free internal Berks County mini soccer course held last Autumn to train 12 under 15 players to officiate at lower age groups(Under7-10s).Nine 14/15 year old boys are now regularly combining refereeing and playing on a Saturday morning .This has given them responsibility ,confidence, leadership skills and an opportunity to put something back into the local community of Ascot and surrounding areas. They all attend Charters school and some will use their experience to assist with their Duke of Edinburgh Award development.
The Year 10 boys are: Joseph Smith, James Wigmore, Murray MacCrimmon, Finn Purcell, Dan Brown, Philip Jones Bateman, Tom Braithwaite, Josh Elsey and Jamie Fielding.
The fully licensed FA course will offer candidates the likelihood of achieving a full FA level 7/8 referee qualification by the end of this season and a useful addition to a CV .Many of the Berks County under 15 team(including two Dads) have already signed up for this course but there are still a limited amount of places for anyone in the local community provided that they are 14 or over by 1st February 2016 and reasonably fit.
Details and dates for the FA course are as follows:
