Parkside Cafe extending Opening Hours
05 Feb 2020

Parkside Cafe at YMCA Reading is extending it's opening hours from Monday the 10th of February for an additional hour to 4pm.  The kitchen will be open for hot food until 3.30.  

We are really pleased to be able to extend the hours following a cut back last year.  A recent customer survey showed that they extended hours were high up on our customers wish list and we are really pleased to be in a position to open for longer.  We have a great team working in the Cafe, and of course the soft play area is a big draw for those of you with little ones.

Join us for after school tea, snacks and a play.

It's all hands on deck at the YMCA Reading Milward Sport Centre in preparation of the closure for refurbishment. There must be 50 years of clutter to remove and staff are hard at it. Don't forget the Sports Centre will be closed from Monday the 2nd of March for refurbishment.  The works will take 4 months.  Look out for our grand re-opening later this year!  We are all very excited about the improvements that will be made, but it will be a difficult 4 months while the work is going on with reduced meeting space.  Please bear with us.

Landscaping Have you seen the front garden???  Another grand reveal will happen later in the Spring when the landscaping work being done with the tremendous support and hard work of Launchpad is complete.  In the meantime, locals won't fail to have noticed the really lovely changes to our frontage along Parkside Road.  The next thing to tackle is the landscaping around our car park.  We will schedule a community clear-up day for the summer when the Parkside Pre-school is on break.
