Thames Hospicecare  (THc) (based in Ascot and Windsor) is celebrating its 25th anniversary  with the launch of a new Hospice-at-Home service.  An extra £315,000 will be needed and the Hospice at Home Appeal  was launched by its Patron  - Ascot’s Lady Catherine Stevenson, former High Sheriff of Berkshire  (pictured) , on Friday March 30th 2012.  The Appeal  has already attracted match funding from a local benefactor and is off to a flying start with a generous donation.

Thames Hopsicecare (THc)  want to keep patients at the heart of their service , supporting  people to die in the place of their choice, whenever possible. Hospice at Home aims to employ three specialist nurses,  providing care and support  all day all year.  The target is to do this for 120 patients at home  by the end of 2012/13 , rising to  200 by the end of 2014/15.  Chief Executive,  Jacqueline Clark   said: “This is taking out into the community , everything we are known for doing here at the Hospice”.  THc already cares for around 1,000 people a year.

Lady Stevenson said: “Thanks to medical advances over the last few decades, people are living longer with terminal illnesses . But this presents us with a new challenge – ensuring there are resources to support people effectively during this time. I’m in no doubt about the important role of Thames Hospicecare plays in the area and am delighted to be Patron of their new appeal. I hope you will get behind it and support this absolutely vital community service.”  Lady Stevenson then officially launched the Appeal with a substantial  donation of her own!

Residents and their supporters are invited to help combat rural decline by joining the Royal Hunt Pub Community Group who plan to help make the Royal Hunt into a successful pub and restaurant.

On 29th November 2017 local resident Bruce received a letter from the Bracknell Forest Borough Solicitor, confirming that his application (to Nominate the Royal Hunt as an Asset of Community Value) has been successful.

Local councilors are elated! This was indeed another successful battle, but there is more work to do.

The Royal Hunt Pub Community Group will try to purchase the Royal Hunt Pub and convert it into a successful pub and restaurant. When the pub goes up for sale, according to the circumstances, Royal Hunt Pub Community Group members may be invited to purchase shares to the value of their pledge.
