All Wrapped Up for Christmas
A while back we were asked to support the World Literacy Foundation with a project called UK Reads which aims to get childrens books into every household across the country.
UK Reads in West Berkshire worked with Home Start and other local social services to identify children in vulnerable families with the aim that every one under the age 16 recieved a book for Christmas. UK reads identified 200 children in our area.
Our wonderful task was to help wrap all these books up ready for delivery!
Lion Margot Payne presided over her first meeting and one of her first duties was to present a cheque to West Berkshire Homeless charity.
Fancy some fabulous music from Newbury's own Brass Band?
Then come and spend an afternoon at the fete, where you will hear
Watership Brass (The Newbury Town Band)
They will be performing a mixture of good old fashioned brass band music plus modern arrangements of family favourites.
Why not have a cup of tea, a slice of cake, listen and relax!
