I love living in East Reading because of the community, diversity and proximity to both the town centre and the Thamesside. And I know from talking to many of you that you value the area for these and many more reasons.
One thing that I think lets Newtown down a bit is the litter and fly tipping.
Reading RESCUE is a community tidy up organised by the Council. They provide gloves, litter pickers, bags etc and will take away the rubbish afterwards. It is a great way to make a difference locally, meet others and strengthen our community. All we need is people...
Details of this year’s Newtown Reading RESCUE – organised by Newtown GLOBE and the Kennet and Brunel community Association – are as follows:
When: Saturday October 12 from 10 AM for as long as you like
Where: the bottom of Cholmeley Road where it meets the River Kennet
Depending on the number of people we will litter pick some of the Thamesside, Kennet Side, Kennet Mouth and the Coal Wood. We will probably do a few hours, but the event is informal so feel free to stay for as long or as short as you want.
If you have your own gloves please bring them along.
If you can’t find us on the day please give me a call on my mobile phone: 07985923938
There are other events across Reading, over about a week, see the website for more information: http://readingrescue.org.uk/
Looking forward to seeing you on Saturday, October 12 and making a difference.
