“We are far more united and have far more in common than that which divides us”
– Jo Cox MP
In my year as Mayor I met hundreds of people in Reading and got to know about their lives, hobbies, passions and challenges. I loved Reading before I was mayor but the great people I met during that year made me love Reading more.
Reading has always had a strong community identity with thousands of different people getting along together all year long. We decided to hold a Great Get Together event in West Reading to celebrate and strengthen our community. So please join us:
Sunday 18 June
Kensington Road Park
Join our Great Get Together in Kensington Park, Reading. Pack a picnic and come along to meet your neighbours in Reading.
Any good at cricket, rounders or football? If you are bring a team game and get your new friends running around in the park.
We’ll have story telling for children from Eddie Winship.
You’ll be able to buy refreshments and BBQ from 103rd Reading Scouts who are supporting the event (£2 for a jumbo hot dog or 4oz burger. Vegetarian options available).
Reading has a wonderful community and has proved year on year we have more in common!
