Fireworks at Laurel Park

On Saturday the 2nd November 2019 we held our Annual Charity Firework Display at Laurel Park.

This year, as previously, it was presented by Woodley and Earley Lions Club assisted by Laurel Park Football Club.
In spite of the weather the 20 minute high impact fireworks and music display went off well, and was enjoyed by hundreds of local families.  We would like to thank all those who attended for their support, and we are currently trying to find worthy causes for our Charity Fund. 

This event is generourly supported by Volker Highways who provide barriers and other street furniture.

Prostate Cancer Awareness Event

Each year we assist the Reading Lions Club in supervising their Prostate Cancer Event, when men are invited to come along and get a health check for Prostate Cancer.  This event usually occurs in March, but this year, 2019, it took place in November.
