Q&A over new primary school plans

Wokingham Borough Council is holding another information session on February 11 about its proposals for a proposed new primary school at Winnersh Farm.

The local community will again have the chance to put their questions to key members of the project team and discuss responses to the issues raised at the meeting on Thursday January 10, 2013.

The session is open to all. However to help the council gauge numbers, interested people are asked to let the council know if they plan to attend. You can view the plans here.
