New Christ Church school celebrates its 150th birthday on 14 July

New Christ Church School, Reading

New Christ Church School on Milman Road in Katesgrove will be celebrating its 150th birthday in a special summer fair on 14 July.

The fair opens at 1.30pm and Reading’s mayor, Councillor Deborah Edwards, is due to arrive at 2pm. There will be a Victorian fancy dress competition, which is open to all,  and a martial arts master class and demonstration.

Plans for the fair include a barbecue, a bouncy assault course, an ‘escape challenge’ inspired by Reading’s 3Bs, a Pimm’s tent (for the grown-ups), photos from the Victorian Strollers, stocks to soak a teacher, face painting and a pop-up natural history museum from Reading University with artefacts you can handle.

Proceeds from the fair will go towards constructing a sensory wildlife garden on the school field.
