Vote100 & Heritage Open Days 2018

We are working with several University-related organisations and the Two Rivers Press, aiming to open up the Acacias on London Road during the national Heritage Open Days in September, with a particular emphasis on Edith Morley, the first female professor in the UK who was also noted for her work with refugees and her campaigning for women’s education and suffrage. The Acacias was a Palmer family residence which they donated to the University College Reading.
