The Goring on Thames Parish Council is made up of elected and co-opted unpaid volunteers, a Clerk and two Assistant Clerks. We strive to represent the interests of the village and its residents.  Both the Full Council and Planning Committee meet regularly.

The Goring on Thames Parish Council office is at the Old Jubilee Fire Station, located between the Health Centre and the Hardware Store in Red Cross Road.

Please note: the office is currently CLOSED due to the COVID-19 pandemic.  The council is still working to support the community by working remotely.  Please continue to contact us in the normal way by emailing Clerk@GoringParishCouncil.gov.uk.

Public Spaces

The Gardiner Recreation Ground
Occupied for 73hours, the GPC paid for the services of an enforcement company to remove the travellers under common law.  The recreation ground remains closed, blocked by large rocks kindly provided by Grundons for which we are extremely grateful.  Urgent works to decontaminate the site are being arranged.

The Sheepcot Recreation Ground & Whitehill Burial Ground
We have today, 20th June, unlocked the gates in both locations.  We are hoping to get a schedule in place to have the gates open each day during the day time, with them locked overnight.  We will keep this page updated when we have more information.

The Council currently have a number of vacancies, for both Councillors and Staff.
