CLEANER RIVER KENNET ... Continued from cover The scheme cost is approximately £28,000 and took only two weeks to complete. Robert James, representing the Town and Manor of Hungerford said ‘There are 27 gullies which drain into the river in the village of Eddington on the edge of Hungerford, after heavy rain the water going into the river is black with pollution from the roads. This work is an excellent step forward to protect our world-renowned chalk streams.’ Charlotte Hitchmough (ARK) said ‘This is an great example of groups of people working together to solve a problem. It is everyone’s responsibility to keep our rivers clean, gone are the days when we can use rivers as drains to take away dirty water and this project demonstrates how innovative solutions can work.’ Cr. Pamela Bale from West Berkshire Council said ‘We are delighted to play a key role in the project. This road is an ancient Highway and historic highway rights exist to discharge drainage water into rivers, but we recognise that we have a role to play to work with partners to reduce pollution in environmentally sensitive areas.’ -Charlotte Hitchmough

HUNGERFORD SCHOOL CHANGES REMEMBERS THE FALLEN CLARIFIED AT MEETING

© Tony Bartlett

H

CR. MARGARET WILSON RETURNS

G

ood to see Cr Margaret Wilson back chairing Hungerford Town Council’s environment and planning committee. Cr Wilson, who has just returned from two months in hospital, resumed her municipal responsibilities at Monday night’s committee meeting.

ungerford’s mayor Cr Martin Crane has clarified moves to change Hunerford’s John O’Gaunt School. Commenting on a non-public meeting on Wednesday, November 6 he told The Adviser: “Many thanks for attending last night’s meeting at relatively short notice to explain the background to the reported ‘decision’ to change John O’Gaunt School into a 4 - 18 All Through model. I offer my overall impression of the discussions but am sure these will be amplified when Ian’s report is posted. “Firstly may I thank Ian for his painting of the picture of Education in Hungerford from the perspective of the prospective numbers of pupils and the funds available from WBC as the due Authority. “It is evident that the current facilities for both Primary and Secondary education have major problems in the numbers attending. On the one hand the Primary school is oversubscribed and in need of extra space whilst the secondary school is currently undersubscribed and thus is ‘uneconomic’ in the terms of centrally directed funding formulae. “WBC have been aware of the growing problem especially in relation to JOG and have in the recent past been able to give financial relief from their resources not only with a £1m grant but also writing off £1.2m of accumulated debts. With a capacity of 680 and a break even of 520 students, the current level of circa 450 presages future debts unless some major changes are made to the structure of the education system for the town. “Attention has therefore been on where and how the oversubscription of the Primary school could in some way be used to bolster the economics of JOG.The innovative suggestion of a 4-18 All Through School has been proposed to allow the much needed improvements to JOG and at the same time relieve the special pressure on the Primary. “The excellent news that you conveyed was that the Primary was not to be closed and would remain for the foreseeable future. Confirmation was also given that there were no plans to sell the Primary School site to generate funds for use on the JOG site. “Although no consideration has been given to use empty buildings, i.e. in the Industrial area, that might be suitable for conversion at much lower capital cost than the £5m quoted for a new Primary school, the WBC favour utilising the JOG site to take the excess pupils from the Primary. What seems to have been supported is the notion of an All Through School that would incorporate a stream of pupils that would otherwise go to the Primary school and house them in currently surplus accommodation at JOG. The current suggestion is to absorb these from the entry level of the Primary and ‘grow’ the All Through School over time. “Whilst I an accept that the concept of an All Through School could have some advantages, as Ian sought to demonstrate, I cannot agree that grafting a small proportion of the Primary school pupils in this way would achieve the best result for those pupils. Instead I advocated you should consider that the Primary School be reduced in number by taking the top age group and drawing them into the JOG campus.This would enable the Primary School to retain the fantastic record of education as one entity rather than splitting a small proportion of students away who may or may not be joined by those from the existing Primary at a later stage. “Parents too will know the direct route that their children would be taking to reach secondary education and not have to be concerned that an educational by-pass had been created. “Although there was considerable variation of views on this matter, there was one over-riding common agreement and that was the interests of the children was paramount and that Hungerford should retain a secondary school. “However the brake on funding was the major obstacle to be overcome and some changes are necessary unless WBC and other Councils can pressure the Dept for Education to recognise the special needs of small rural communities that cannot reach the requisite number students that those from metropolitan areas do so easily. Without this change of Govt policy and even if the JOG achieves an All Through Status , it will still remain vulnerable especially in the provision of competitive higher level education and some degree of curriculum sharing must be seen as essential. Consultation: “I am pleased to learn that we now have a period of some 3 months for there to be a wide range of consultation on the options available for both Primary and Secondary education in Hungerford in which I believe that Hungerford Town Council has a major part to play and assist in finding the right solution for the problem that we all now know exists. “I look forward to receiving the WBC reappraisal of the options on the table”.

CLEANER RIVER KENNET

W

ork was completed this week to re-route storm water from the main road in Hungerford away from the River Kennet and Harvey’s Stream. Both the water courses and the adjacent water meadows are designated Sites of Special Scientific Interest and within a Special Area of Conservation, but for years have suffered from dirty water running off the road into the protected chalk streams. The pollution was first identified in 2008. For five years the Trustees of the Town and Manor of Hungerford have been working with partners to find a solution to the problem. The solution, funded by Natural England, ARK (Action for the River Kennet) and the Trustees of the Town & Manor of Hungerford with the support of West Berkshire Council, connected the existing gullies into brick chambers which will in turn feed into a soak-away. This will naturally filter pollutants before they get into the river. (Continued on page 9...) EST 1880
