Hello and welcome to the website for the people who live or work in the Baker Street area of Reading in Berkshire.

The aims of the Baker Street Area Neighbourhood Association (BSANA) are to develop our sense of community and improve our local environment. You are invited to get involved or join our mailing list.

Thanks to all who have helped with past events. It all goes to making our neighbourhood a nicer and more friendly area to live in. We look forward to seeing you at future events.

Oxford Road Safer Neighbourhood Forum
Time: 7:00pm – 9:00pm.
Venue: Salvation Army, 522 Oxford Road
The Oxford Road Safer Neighbourhood Forum is part of a force wide initiative that was established by Thames Valley Police in 2007 (originally called the NAG), that deals with key police and safety issues that have been identified by the community.
Anyone is welcome to attend and, if you want, raise any policing or safety issues for the area (in our case those living on or near the Oxford Road in Reading – in Abbey and Battle wards).
Representatives from Thames Valley Police normally attend and give a general update on policing in the area as well as addressing any specific concerns (without giving out confidential information on current operations).
