Due to the current situation with Coronavirus we will not be holding the normal face to face Annual General Meeting (AGM) in November. Instead we ask residents to send in by email any questions or comments that you have. These should be sent to the secretary - please click here
We will address all of these both with an individual response and publish the question/comment plus BVRA response on the BVRA website (we will not identify the originator on the website). This will be done in conjunction with the publication of the BVRA annual report.
As communicated in the last Newsletter we have suspended the collection of cash for annual subscriptions. Many members have now signed up to the Direct Debit option but we are still below the normal number of paid up members. Implementing the Direct Debit option is simple and is still only £2 per year. We would encourage you to do so using the process detailed in the link below, We will use the mandate to collect any outstanding 2020 subscriptions and for collection of subscriptions in 2021.
Unfortunately we have had to cancel the Quiz night scheduled in November and the Carols In The Park in December due to the corona virus outbreak. We hope to be able to resume our social events in the future so please keep checking back here or subscribe to our social newsletter here
This web site is about Barkham, an attractive semi-rural area on the outskirts of Wokingham in the county of Berkshire, and is the work of the Barkham Village Residents Association (BVRA).
Our aim is to:
- provide news of what is going on in Barkham and the surrounding area
- supplement the information provided by our BVRA newsletters (4 issues each year)
- provide regular reports on Wokingham Borough Council’s development plan
- develop a stronger local community

Ian Overton, the long standing Treasurer of the BVRA, has just “retired” after nearly 20 years in the role. In recognition of his sterling support of the residents’ association, we bought Ian a retirement gift of a terracotta planter (pictured).
