At the EBCA meeting on Tuesday 24th May 2016 it was decided to discontinue EBCA. As a result this website will no longer be updated.

East Bracknell Community Action is a community led problem solving group focused on identifying and addressing local concerns thereby improving the quality of life for local residents. It covers the Bracknell neighbourhoods of Harmans Water, Martin's Heron, The Warren and The Parks as shown on the map of Harmans Water Ward and also those of Crown Wood and Forest Park. It was formerly known as the Harmans Water and The Parks, Martin's Heron and The Warren Neighbourhood Action Group.

We are one of many NAGs around the country made up of volunteer representatives from the community including residents, police, local councillors, community organisations, schools and businesses normally meeting every 8 to 12 weeks. We focus our work around 3 main priorities identified by the local community. See the Thames Valley Police website for more information about the work of NAGs.

The path round Allsmoor Pond is currently closed while Thames Water repair the pond wall and footpath. Repair work is currently underway and scheduled to be completed by February 15th. Please observe the signs and barriers and keep off the path. (This work was completed on March 4th)

Sadly over the Christmas period new grafitti appeared on the fencing which we had painted earlier in the year. We are investigating.

About NAGs

NAGs are key to the success of neighbourhood policing planning on behalf of the community and organising tasks to be completed. This improves community safety and reassurance and reduces crime, disorder, disproportionate fear of crime, and local traffic issues.

Officers from Thames Valley Police play an active part in our activities. We are in the Bracknell Central North neighbourhood for policing, visit their page for details of who the officers are and to read their monthly updates.

Our Activities

Harmans Water & The Parks, Martin's Heron & The Warren Neighbourhood Action Group was formed around 2006 and has achieved quite a lot for our residents. See our 'Activities' section for a review of some of the things we have been doing.

We also discuss matters with the resident's associations in the area and have representatives at our meetings. These include the Martin's Heron & The Warren Residents Association [MHWRA] and The Parks Resident's Association.

Healthwatch banner

We also support Healthwatch Bracknell Forest. Healthwatch Bracknell Forest collects feedback and helps you to find your way around health and social care in Bracknell Forest. Our health and social care system is going through massive change, power is shifting from the centre to local people. The public has few ways to use its powerful voice and may not realise the difference it can make to services. People rarely speak up, for fear of repercussions, through lack of engagement, or because they don't think they can make a difference. Healthwatch is an opportunity for you to use your voice to have real influence and create a health and care system that meets all our needs. You can be involved in shaping local services in many ways. This can range from providing one off feedback to Healthwatch of the care you, a family member or someone you care for has received to getting actively involved as a volunteer. Further information can be found on the Healthwatch Bracknell Forest website.
