16th October is going to be a BIG day. On that Sunday I’m inviting all those passionate about walking, urban walking, story telling and Reading to join me on a walk. Not just a walk but walk & talk – we’ll venture the streets of Reading, find out hidden stories and history and have fun. We’ll meet at Palmer Park Library at 12noon and walk through the side streets from London Road down to town centre. We’ll finish nowhere else but at Harvest Feast Artisan Food Market, organised by Laura from Pop-Up Reading at Milk Bar. There’s going to be a lot going on!
Reading has more to offer than the Oracle and shopping in town centre. If you only walk few minutes away from the town centre you’ll find fantastic walking routes. Those urban trails wil show you different side of Reading.
This a continuation of walk posted last week. Second part of the walk along Oxford Road in Reading will make you towonder about the connection between its past and the future.
Reading’s Oxford Road hides more historical secrets than you may think. Under its messy surface there’s a lot to discover. Join me on this walk to find out what they’re.
Following last weeks post about walking in Caversham here’s an interview with Sarah Roy, aka Caversham Jam Lady. She’s been in Caversham for 11 years and has been running her jam making business for just over a year. She shared some of Caversham and business secrets with me.
You may have heard a thing or two about Caversham in Reading – it’s pretty and has that village-y feel but I believe there’s more to the north of Reading than just being pretty and posh. There’re places that speaks about local history and something for everybody to do all year round.
