Lunch

In general we would recommend bringing a packed lunch or you can purchase things from the Morrisons supermarket next door. There is a pub about 10 minutes walk away, but it does not serve meals at Sunday lunchtime.

Directions

Travelling by car from the M4

At junction 10 on the M4 take the A329(M) towards Reading. Take the first exit and follow signs to Winnersh (not Winnersh Triangle). Turn right at the first roundabout with lights and left at the second with lights. At the third, larger, complex roundabout, again with traffic lights, turn left following the signs for Wokingham and Winnersh A329. Keep straight on on this road for some time (straight on at all the traffic lights). After about 2.5 miles turn right at a large roundabout signposted to Woosehill and Supermarket. The Community Centre is first left, but the car park at its rear is very small, so it is best to take the second on the left into the Morrisons supermarket, and park in the car park away from the shop entrance. After parking, walk back to the left past Morrisons and down the steps to get to Woosehill Community Centre.

Travelling by car from Bracknell

From Bracknell take the A329 towards Wokingham and Reading. When the dual-carriageway is about to turn into the A329(M) Motorway turn off following the signs to Wokingham A329. Turn left at the junction roundabout and travel into Wokingham. After about 1 mile the road bends left and you enter the one-way system in Wokingham town centre. Move to the right hand lane and follow the signs for Reading A329. After emerging from the short one-way system keep straight on following signs for Reading and Winnersh A329. About 1 mile out of Wokingham town centre turn left at a large roundabout signposted to Woosehill and Supermarket. The Community Centre is first left, but the car park at its rear is very small, so it is best to take the second on the left into the Morrisons supermarket, and park in the car park away from the shop entrance. After parking, walk back to the left past Morrisons and down the steps to get to Woosehill Community Centre.

Travelling by Train

Travel to Wokingham railway station. This is on the lines between London Waterloo and Reading, and Guildford and Reading. We expect to be running a ferry service from there, meeting those trains arriving between 09:00 and 09:50. If you inform us in advance then we may be able to meet trains until 10:10. If you fail to get a lift you can take a taxi. (Ask for Woosehill Community Centre or Morrisons in Woosehill - approximate cost £5.00) Alternatively you could walk. After exiting the station by the main entrance, turn right over the level crossing or foot bridge and immediately right into Oxford Road (or exit the Oxford Road side). Follow Oxford Road westwards until you get to the main road at a T-junction. Turn left into the service road. Turn left when you reach the steps by the large roundabout and follow the footpath through the trees. When out on the road again, take the first turning on the left (Emmview Close) to get to the Woosehill Community Centre.
