On 10 March, I attended a forum at the Madejski Stadium that aimed to bring the physical activity and disability sectors together so they could share good practice, and explore new and improved inclusive opportunities for disabled people. The event was organised by Get Berkshire Active, whose aim is to work with partners and stakeholders to inspire, enhance, co-ordinate and deliver physical activity where they matter locally.

I’ve occupied my present home in Northcourt Avenue, Reading for 30 years, but I’ve lived in the Whitley area my whole life. In that time, I’ve witnessed a lot of change as Reading has grown and the number of people living and working in the town has followed suit. Traffic and parking issues appear to be an inevitable part of this growth.
