Newport Road street party 2016
Saturday 11 June 2016 – another excellent street party for the Big Lunch weekend! We were worried about the weather for the first time this year, but fortunately got away with only a few spots of rain while areas around Reading had downpours. New for this year were Splat the Rat, Readipop’s drumming workshop and our first live music courtesy of Joy & Christie and the Bell Tower Shower! Plenty of activities for the kids with loads of help from New Hope and another fiendish quiz courtesy of Rod – with prizes provided by the Standard Tandoori. Many thanks to everyone who helped and the residents of Newport Road for hosting. And special thanks to Readipop for their support in getting our live music going, and to the Moderation for the delicious free barbecue food and Thai curry.
