What's On 2021

 

Surge testing has started in the GU47 0 postcode area of Bracknell Forest, to help try and reduce the spread of the COVID-19 Delta variant locally.  

The council is urging all residents over the age of 11 (Year 7) who are living or working in the GU47 0 postcode area to come forward for a COVID-19 PCR test from now until 30th June, provided they are not showing symptoms. An interactive map is available to find out if your address is included.

This will allow us to identify cases, advise self-isolation when necessary and contain the spread.  This includes people who have had the vaccine as well as those who are doing regular lateral flow testing. If you have had a positive PCR test in the past 90 days, you do not need to come forward for testing. 

The surge testing will also apply to staff and pupils at all the borough’s secondary schools and colleges, as well as staff at all primary schools. Primary school children do not need to take part unless they attend Binfield CE Primary School where there has been a number of cases. 

The GU47 0 postcode was prioritised for surge testing based on high infection rate but low vaccine uptake. Low vaccine coverage further increases the risk of transmission and serious disease.  

Testing sites will be open until 30th June at: 

  • Pyes Acre car park (8am to 2pm   3pm to 8pm)
  • Sandhurst Memorial Hall car park (8am to 2pm   3pm to 8pm)
  • Owlsmoor Community Centre car park (8am to 8pm)
  • Bracknell Leisure Centre (2pm to 8pm)
  • Morgan Recreation Ground car park (8am to 8pm on 17, 19, 21, 22, 23, 24, 26, 28, 29, 30 June)

Please walk to a site where possible as parking will be limited.  Remember there may well be queues, so please wear weather appropriate clothing and bring water and a face covering.

A number of football legends will be attending the launch of Red Card to Racism at Pazzia , London Road, Sunningdale, from 7pm on June 22nd, and staying to watch England’s final group game against Czech Republic won the big screen.

And the author of Red Card to Racism will be there on the night to sign copies of his books, together with the football legends

The global Black Lives Matter campaign has given greater exposure to the extent and insidious nature of the structural and systemic racism that exists in all strata of our society and has provided renewed impetus to the urgent need to challenge and eradicate racism in all its forms and wherever it is found.

Sadly, sport has not been immune from this, especially so in the case of football. For too long, there were attempts to hide and mitigate racist attitudes and actions within the game, but thanks to the growing profile and visibility of black and minority ethnic (BAME) players both past and present - Viv Anderson, Cyrille Regis, Jimmy Carter, Les Ferdinand, Pat Nevin and Ruud Gullit to name just a few - and almost three decades of education and campaigning led by Kick It Out, attitudes have changed. However, now is not the time to be complacent - there’s still a great deal left to do.

As from Friday April 9th, everyone in England is being encouraged to take twice-weekly tests - even vaccinated you can still pass on the virus. Regular testing and the vaccine rollout are key in the government's plans to restart the economy, suppress and control the spread of variants, and allow us to do the things we miss.
