BSANA Neighbourhood Association

BSANA AreaHello and welcome to the website for the people who live and work in the Baker Street area of central Reading in Berkshire.
The Baker Street Area Neighbourhood Association (BSANA) has been set up by local people to develop our sense of community and improve our local environment.

Thanks to all who came to the Big Lunch, AGM or helped with the gardening. It all goes to making our neighbourhood a nicer and more friendly area to live in.
