Parade with Pride to our Picnic

What better place to catch up with the people of Reading Hydro than to parade and then picnic together in view of the hydro site?

Reading Hydro PrideThe Reading Pride Parade is an annual opportunity for anyone in the area to show their support of equality and diversity. Reading Hydro will join this family-friendly event to celebrate diversity within and around us. We’ll have music and laughter, and you can even sing and dance along if you fancy it. It’s a great chance to get to know each other and learn more about the project.

11am Saturday 31 August 2019

Meeting outside Metro Bank at Broad Street Mall. Look out for our banner.

Ending by the Pride event at Kings Meadow riverside, below Caversham Lock

Reading Hydro will also have a stall at the Pride event, featuring our scale model and some water toys. Please do volunteer to support the stall for an hour or two, even if you don’t know a lot, as it really helps to have several people at a time.


On arrival we’ll picnic near the river. Bring your own food, which you are welcome to share (vegan food is the most shareable). You can also buy lunch at the Pride Marketplace, and bring that to join us.


Join us for a Summer Picnic by the Thames

What better place to catch up with the people of Reading Hydro than to picnic together in view of the site? As part of Wild About Reading, we’re getting outdoors for an after work picnic.

6pm Tuesday 30th July

Kings Meadow riverside, below Caversham Lock


Bring dinner and drinks and if they are veggie/vegan to share, so much the better. Being environmentally inclined is increasingly influencing many of our eating habits, though do eat whatever you like.

Water Fest Success

Some of the Reading Hydro Team at Reading Water Fest 2019

A continuous stream of interested people stopped to talk to us at Reading Water Fest on Saturday 15th June. Many signed up as new members of Reading Hydro.

David’s beautiful scale model of the technology option focused people’s interest and discussion. We look forward to our next opportunity to talk with local people, at Meadows Day on 6th July at Clayfield Copse, Emmer Green.
