Whitchurch's two charming pubs, The Ferryboat and The Greyhound, are open as usual and easily accessible by car from the north and by foot from the south, over the footbridge. In Pangbourne and Goring, traffic is flowing freely and there is plenty of parking for shoppers.
So please support our local businesses, they all need your custom to help them get through the closure of the Bridge.
