Katesgrove Residents Association was founded on Thursday 7th October 1971 and meets regularly on the 2nd Wednesday of each month at 20:15 at the Waterloo Meadows Play Centre, off Elgar Road.
We hold a ‘Street Party’ on the first Monday in May each year on Waterloo Meadows, based around Waterloo Meadows Play Centre. We try to bring in an act of interest as the centrepiece of the event. Also we normally plant a tree in the meadows on that day.
We are part of the Wider MAPP Partnership, which is trying to build a centre for its 3 component organisations – Reading PHAB Club, the Apollo Youth Club and the Mary Seacole Day Nursery – who are at present housed in sub-standard buildings. This project also includes the refurbishmant of the British School on Southampton Street
