We have recently moved our long running coffee morning, The Pop-In, from the council offices on Bridge Street,  to the Hexagon.  The Pop-In runs from 1000-1200 on a Thursday morning most weeks in the coffee bar next to the main entrance. Attendance costs £1 and over the coming months we will have regular information sessions and speakers as well as the usual friendly chat over drinks and biscuits. Anyone is welcome to Pop-In! It’s a handy place to stop for a natter on the way to the shops. We would like to take this opportunity to thank Reading Borough Council for hosting us in their building for many years and continuing to host us in the Hexagon.

If you fancy a nice place to sit and chat on your way into town on Thursday then why not join us?

We are there most weeks apart from the pantomime season. Most weeks are a social coffee morning, but every month we have a visiting speaker. the sessions are informal and chatty so everyone can join in rather than a "lecture" format.

To find out more, please contact us by calling 0118 950 2480. Or just Pop-In!
