Green­ham Con­trol Tower is host­ing Com­mon Peo­ple, an ex­hi­bi­tion of pho­to­graphs taken by award-win­ning pho­tog­ra­pher Wendy Car­rig. Car­rig was a pho­tog­ra­phy stu­dent in the mid-1980s dur­ing a time of so­cial dis­quiet in Bri­tain. Coal min­ers were strik­ing against pit clo­sures, and peace pro­test­ers gath­ered at Green­ham Com­mon to demon­strate against the in­stal­la­tion of US nu­clear mis­siles on Bri­tish soil. Com­mon Peo­ple records Car­rig’s time spent with women pro­test­ers.


Fash­ion and home­ware re­tailer Mata­lan will open a large two-storey shop on Brac­can Walk at The Lex­i­con in Brack­nell in the first quar­ter of 2019, lo­cated above and next to Costa.

Moun­tain Ware­house has also opened a new store on Brac­can Walk.

Rob Mor­ris, Gen­eral Man­ager at The Lex­i­con, says: “We are de­lighted to wel­come these two re­tail­ers to The Lex­i­con. Mata­lan has some­thing for ev­ery­one and Moun­tain Ware­house will prove pop­u­lar with those who en­joy walk­ing or cy­cling through the bor­ough’s huge forests.”
