The Whitley Pump

The view from Katesgrove Hill

Matthew Farrall, 1968-2018

Matthew Farrall, friend, Reading enthusiast and author, died unexpectedly on Friday 20 April.

Here are the articles he wrote for the Whitley Pump. The breadth of his interests was extraordinary, and the sheer fun he had telling the world about the town he loved was always a joy to hear.

Reading will not be the same without him.

  1. A gem lost from the crown that makes Reading a wonderfull place.

  2. Matthew Farrall’s friends plan a tribute for him at Saturday’s football match.

  3. Mat did so much to promote what we are doing at JMA, he made our students feel good about their talent. I’m sure we are not the only ones he did this for. He will be missed.
