WEST Lon­don Men­tal Health Trust ( WLMHT) is host­ing two ad­di­tional in­for­ma­tion days next month to raise aware­ness of de­vel­op­ments at Broadmoor Hos­pi­tal in Crowthorne.

The Vic­to­rian hos­pi­tal is set to un­dergo a £242m re­de­vel­op­ment project dur­ing the next three years to bring the 150-year-old high se­cu­rity unit up to mod­ern stan­dards.

Rep­re­sen­ta­tives from WLMHT and its con­trac­tor Kier will be at the Mead­ows Shop­ping Cen­tre, Sand­hurst, be­tween mid­day and 3pm on Au­gust 12 and at Crowthorne Li­brary on Au­gust 14 be­tween mid­day and 2pm and then be­tween 5pm and 7pm.

Res­i­dents are in­vited to at­tend and ask any ques­tions they have about the scheme.

THE hal­cyon days of 1950s and 60s mo­tor­ing will be re­cap­tured this Sun­day, as the Ru­ral Life Cen­tre in Tilford stages its an­nual Mark II Ford Rally.

Known as the Three Graces, the MK IIs were first man­u­fac­tured from 1956 to 1962 and were among some of the most pop­u­lar and recog­nis­able cars on the high­ways.

Lov­ingly pre­served and metic­u­lously main­tained, the cars from the rock and roll era will be on pa­rade at The Reeds Road mu­seum where their own­ers will be on hand to an­swer ques­tions about them. Vis­i­tors are en­cour­aged to bring along their own clas­sic cars, and there is a tro­phy for the best ve­hi­cle.

The cen­tre will be open from 10am to 5pm.

PEO­PLE liv­ing in Church Crookham and sur­round­ing ar­eas are in­vited to a re­flec­tive com­mem­o­ra­tion to mark the cen­te­nary of the out­break of the First World War.

The event will take place at Christ Church in Gally Hill Road, Church Crookham, on Sun­day. It will start at noon by the flag­pole in the church yard be­fore mov­ing into the church.

The pro­gramme of mu­sic, song and po­etry will last about 30 min­utes and is de­signed for all ages.

Chil­dren of all ages are par­tic­u­larly wel­come to at­tend the com­mem­o­ra­tion.

CRAFT and chat­ter is on of­fer at Yate­ley Li­brary on Mon­day in a weekly so­cial event.

The free ses­sion runs from 10am to 12pm at the li­brary in School Lane.

Also at the li­brary, a baby rhyme-time will be held for ba­bies and their par­ents to­mor­row. The free half-hour ses­sion starts at 10.15am. There is a cake sale the fol­low­ing morn­ing from 10am.
