On a mission to make Reading wild

The Wild Reading Project Reading, like many towns has loads of wild spaces, where children can roam free, play and learn. Sadly, these spaces are underused by the community. And it’s not just Reading – parents across the land are struggling to get their kids away from the screens, outside, active and having fun. The Wild Reading Project is through to the final of ITV’s People’s Millions and needs your vote to WIN £50,000. They’re on TV on 24th November and are going to need 1000s of people across the land to pick up the phone and vote for ‘The Wild Reading project’.

So how are they going to do it?

The Wild Reading Project is going to provide FREE nature-themed Family Wild Day events, workshops for schools, training for teachers, and outdoor playdays for children. There’ll be stuff you may remember as a child, like building dens, hunting bugs, conker contests… as well as learning about nature, all in local parks, woodlands and other wild spaces. They’re going to map the wild side of Reading and help people of all ages discover some of the amazing wildlife that lives there too!
