About us

Who are we?

We are a completely independent non-profit organisation run by volunteers, helping to generate some community spirit in a small corner of Reading. Our three main aims are to bring people in our area together, improve our local environment and represent the views of local people.

Where are we?

We are in the area between Reading town centre and Caversham. Our boundaries are Caversham Road, Northfield Road, Barry Place, the residential end of Cardiff Road, Addison Road, Denbeigh Place and Randolph Road. You can find a clickable map of our area from Google here.

How can we be contacted?

If you would like to find out more about us or can help with local activities please send an email to info@bell-tower.org.uk.

Where does the name come from?

At the centre of our area is the bell tower belonging to EP Collier Primary School, our main landmark that can be seen from all over the area. The neighbourhood has no historic name, so we thought it would be fitting to use this landmark in our logo and name.

What’s going on in the area?

We produce a quarterly newsletter, Neighbourhood News. Printed copies are distributed free to all households and businesses in our area – our total circulation is around 600. You can download this from our newsletter page. Our events page has information on local events, along with plenty of photos of our recent activities.
