Welcome Back Ovingham W.I.!

The Women's Institute returned in style to The Reading Room recently with a 'Welcome Back' party. Cakes were baked, cakes were eaten, tea was made and tea was drunk. It's good to have you back! (Photo: L-R President, Clare Mould and Lynn East) Oct 2021

Listen To This Space! Stereo Finally Comes to The Reading Room after 127 years!

The Reading Room Committee successfully applied for a multi-thousand pound grant from the Lottery Community Fund to pay for acoustic work to make the main hall less echoey, completely replace the old mono AV system (so we can have proper cinema sound and greatly improved playback of music), plus install a new disco lighting system for dance groups and parties. We hope to have this all installed before Christmas. August, 2021.
