Communities across Reading are being invited to stage street parties this summer without having to pay the usual road closure fees. Reading Borough Council is extending the 'no-fee' offer to neighbours over three weekends in June and July.
Residents are being invited to hold street parties for the Big Lunch on the weekend of Saturday 1st/Sunday 2nd June, The Great Get Together on Saturday 22nd/Sunday 23rd June and Reading Summer Street Party Weekend on Saturday 6th/Sunday 7th July.
David McElroy, Green campaigner in Redlands (where we finished a close second last time), said: “Big Lunch street parties are a great way to build community. I encourage everyone to talk to your neighbours about organising one for your road”.
Anyone who wishes to apply to hold a street party on any of the specified weekends should complete the form available at www.reading.gov.uk/streetparties and send it to: Street Parties, Communications Department, Reading Borough Council, Civic Offices, Bridge Street, Reading, RG1 2LU.
The deadline for applications is 22nd April 2019.
