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

The BVRA needs a new Membership Secretary and a Treasurer. Each role will take around 30 to 40 hours a year. If you are interested or would like more information please contact the Chairman, Alan Dixon email@example.com
It is with great sadness that we announce that our Committee Secretary Pam Edwards passed away on 20th July 2019, after a short illness. She has been a driving force behind the BVRA since its inception and we send our deepest condolences to her family and friends.
As co-founder of the organization which was formed by herself and Christine Thomas in 1987 to raise awareness of the threat of development in The Coombes, which then became the BVRA, she has been a major part of the community for many years. A keen bridge player, quilter and talented crafter who was always willing to give her time to run cardmaking sessions with the Barkham Ladies Club. She was active with so many groups, she will be sorely missed.
