Revealing Reading's Hidden Histories

The Museum of Reading has been awarded funding by the Happy Museum project to explore the history of three areas in Reading: Orts Road, Dee Park and Oxford Road.  OHOS is pleased to be participating in the Oxford Road section of this project.  Interested neighbours on the the Oxford Road met in the Keep on 2 February to share knowledge and ideas, and plan ways of ensuring this project leaves a legacy for all to enjoy.  The aim is to document and celebrate local features and achievements and raise pride in the area.  The Oxford Road NAG and the Oxford Road Multi Agency (see Oxford Road Fun Day) are also involved.
Next meeting is at the Keep (571 Oxford Road, next door to Brock Barracks) on Saturday 9 February, 10.30 - 11.30am, coordinated by Nicola Mann of Reading Museum
