Public Meeting: 24th March

During 2010-2015, Reading West MP Alok Sharma held a regular series of public meetings for his constituents covering subjects such as policing, health, flooding, schools and housing development.

Continuing this work, Alok Sharma has organised a public meeting to discuss policing issues for residents living in Battle and Minster wards, which will take place at 7pm on Thursday 24 March 2016 at LifeSpring Church, The Pavilion, 143-145 Oxford Road, Reading, RG1 7UY.

Attending the meeting along with Alok will be Keith Stacey, who is Neighbourhood Inspector for Reading Town Centre and Oxford Road. Inspector Stacey will be accompanied by other officers.

At the meeting the police will update residents on the work they have been doing to combat local crime in Battle and Minster wards, including drugs-related and organised crime, litter and fly-tipping, and dog fouling. The meeting will also be a great opportunity for local residents to raise directly with Thames Valley Police any particular concerns they may have.

Further meetings for residents living in other areas of the Reading West constituency will be held during the year.

Alok Sharma said: “I know policing matters and combating crime are a real priority for many of my constituents and therefore together with Thames Valley Police, I have organised this public meeting for local Battle and Minster ward residents. Everyone is welcome to attend the meeting on 24th March but to assist with planning, I would be grateful if you could get in touch via or 0118 941 3803 to indicate whether you hope to attend.”
