George Michael Celebrations
Goring Parish Council are aware of differing views amongst the local community on whether the June George Michael celebrations should become a regular event. The Parish Council has been asked by a George Michael fan group to have a ‘George Michael birthday weekend’ event somewhere in Goring in June 2019. As there have been supporters of this idea, there have also been some concerns raised about this becoming an annual event. The Parish Council determined it was best to consult on the matter prior to making a decision. Your views are very much appreciated.You may respond to these questions by an on-line survey, which you can find here: or download a PDF version from here to complete and e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org or deliver by hand/post to Goring on Thames Parish Council, Old Jubilee Fire Station, Red Cross Road, Goring, Reading RG8 9HGClosing Date: 5th January 2019
