|Royal Berks Free School Anyone?|
Now, twelve months on, central government officials have been in contact with Reading council to ask if we supported Wilson's plan to turn the historic old front buildings into a free school. Council officers, I understand, were less than impressed with such a barmy plan!
Not put off, I also hear that NHS land at Craven Road is also the subject of some frantic speculation.
We will see. I think the best bet for a new school in east Reading is still at the Crescent Road site - recently purchased back by Reading council - land which others seemed content should be used for housing.
