Talk: Reading Abbey
The Society arranges a varied programme of events throughout the year; holds bi-monthly meetings to which all members are welcome; works closely with Sonning Parish Council; and has a Planning & Traffic Panel to advise on local applications and changes.
We hope to be able to restart our social program at the end of June with Simon Wenham’s Talk on "The Pursuit of Pleasure: Victorian and Edwardian Leisure" and we sincerely hope we'll finally be able to enjoy the "Quiet American" Film Club event in October.
We will obviously adhere to the latest Covid regulations so check here closer to the time for full details.
Our civic society is committed to:
The Planning & Traffic Panel contributes effectively to planning, environmental and highways consultations, offering considered views on issues affecting both sides of the river. We are fortunate to have found so many people who have been willing to give freely of their time on behalf of our Society. The Panels also welcome new members to share in the work.
The Society, through the Education Panel and the Social Committee, provides a varied programme of events, which members and non-members alike support very well. Our talks and walks have ranged from Thames Watermills through biodiversity to brick making. Full details of future events are shown on this website as well as being advertised in Bridge, the quarterly newsletter of the Society.

You'll find expanded news from our planning, traffic and educational panels as well as information on planning applications.
We've enhanced the events area to include local functions as well as details of Society talks etc. We'd encourage you to let us know if we're missing information so that we can keep everyone informed.
We are continuing to develop this website, so you'll see changes over the coming weeks, please be patient while we move everything across from the old site.
