About WADRA

The Association for residents of the area bounded
by The Warren, St. Peter's Avenue, Upper Woodcote Rd.,
Blagrave Farm and Blagrave Lane

WADRA's Objective

The Association seeks to preserve and enhance the character of the area bounded by The Warren, St. Peter's Avenue, Upper Woodcote Rd., Blagrave Farm and Blagrave Lane.

What WADRA does for you

The committee monitors and considers a variety of local issues as well as fundraising for local projects, including:

  • Planning
  • Traffic
  • Roads and Pavements,
  • Trees
  • Noise
  • Reading Festival
  • The River
  • Mapledurham Playing Fields and Pavilion

We consult with Reading Borough Councillors and Officers when appropriate and are an experienced channel through which residents' views may be expressed to them.

 

Our biggest success to date was our involvement in the blocking of the selling of land and building of houses and a school onto the Mapledurham Playing Fields. We are currently working with local residents, clubs and Reading Borough Council to secure funding to extend and refurbish the present Pavilion at Mapledurham Playing Fields so that it can once again be a valued and valuable local resource.

We are always looking for more people to join the committee or just help out at events. Please consider joining the committee, your committment can be as large or small as you like, new faces are very welcome.
