Newport Road street party 2014

Saturday 31 May 2014 – we’re back again, with another excellent street party for the Big Lunch weekend! The weather was fine, and about 150 people came again for an afternoon of fun. The famous ‘hook a duck’ game and egg-and-spoon race were back, and another fiendish quiz, this year courtesy of Rod – with prizes provided by the Standard Tandoori. We also had a bike repair workshop, face painting and a cake stall courtesy of Sarah from Addison Road that raised money for Bell Tower. Many thanks to all the volunteers who helped and the residents of Newport Road for hosting. And special thanks to Andy from the Moderation for providing another free and very tasty barbecue!

The great Bell Tower quiz

In May 2014 we had a great fun quiz at the Crowne Plaza hotel by Caversham Bridge – a fun evening with laughter, competition and view of the river too.

Tidy-up Day 2013

The Big Skip’s back again! We had to postpone our event until October this time because of the building work at the school during the summer. As usual it didn’t take long to fill our giant skip, provided with sponsorship from Reading Festival organisers Festival Republic, and we had a great bike repair workshop going too.
