Theale’s event of the year is upon us!
Theale Village Community Association (TVCA) has organised the Theale Village Carnival and Fete, which will take place at North Street Playing Fields today from 12 noon until 6pm.
With something for everyone, this not-for-profit event aims to bring the whole community of Theale together and give local groups – including the Scouts, St John’s Ambulance, Army Cadets, Theale Church and pupils from both the primary and secondary schools – an opportunity to raise awareness of their activities. Any profits from the event will be divided and invested back into local community groups. There will be displays from Urban Stylez Dance Crews and Reading Tae Kwon Do squads, fairground rides plus traditional games and a variety of independent traders as well as a Grand Raffle.
The new pedestrian entrance to the station, just to the east of the new (not yet open) ticket office is now available for public use, making access to the east end of Brunel Road and Arlington Business Park easier for rail users.
