Cav Court Completed

Bagpipes, a jazz band, Punch & Judy show and other entertainments were on hand to mark the reopening on Caversham Court after a long-overdue £1.6m renovation with assistance from the Heritage Lottery Fund.

It marked the culmination of a career in local politics and the highlight of his year as Mayor of Reading for Mapledurham's Cllr Fred Pugh, who was obviously delighted with the outcome.

Cllr Dave Luckett attended the reopening to support his colleague and came away beaming with enthusiasm for one of Reading's 'hidden gems'.

Meanwhile Reading's executive member for culture & sport, Cllr Graeme Hoskin, described the opening as a "lovely, lively afternoon" and said that the Gardens were "looking absolutely stunning thanks to the makeover."

Reading Guide was also in attendance to record the event for posterity with an album of photos shot under glorious sunshine.


Update: Reading East MP Rob Wilson tries to show he has a sense of humour.


  1. "keep buying your lottery tickets"


  2. are you being sarcastic or something?

  3. isn't he a sourpuss!
