READING

“IS A MUCH MALIGNED TOWN. TOO MANY PEOPLE SEE IT ONLY FROM THE RAILWAY AND DISMISS IT AS A MODERN PLACE…NO TOWN IN THE SOUTH OF ENGLAND HIDES ITS ATTRACTIONS MORE SUCCESSFULLY FROM THE VISITOR.”

We agree with John Betjeman! We are a small local charity based in Reading. We aim to work with other organisations to help enhance some of Reading’s cultural & heritage spaces (both real & virtual) and everyone’s understanding & enjoyment of them.
