Meet Rev Tonia Elliott, community minister at Arborfield Green

When we published our local plan, we committed to building communities, not just houses – and to provide schools, open spaces, roads and other amenities alongside new homes.

The former Arborfield Garrison was among the first of these major new developments and it is now a much-loved home for Rev Tonia Elliott and her family. She is community minister at St Eligius’ Church in Arborfield Green and says the neighbourhood is close-knit, which helped residents to support each other during the coronavirus lockdowns.
