Tai Chi
Time: 2:00pm – 3:00pm.
Venue: Walford Hall, Carey Street
Bangasumnida: Greetings!
New Tai Chi classes are every other week.
Body & Brain Yoga and Ki Gong is rooted in Korean Taoist tradition which develops the full potential of the brain, eliminates stress, and revitalises the body. Through physical training we release deep tensions, strengthen and detox the body, and develop flexibility. This allows our bodies and minds to become happy, healthy and peaceful. The classes are focussed in Yoga, Ki Gong, Meditation and Vibration and combine East Asian healing and energy philosophies.
These classes are for young and old, the able and the not so able. The aim is not to become super fit, or to gain the perfect physique but to simply focus on what is really important: your health.
We are hoping to host these classes on a long-term basis, but we’ll need a good attendance to keep them running. So get excited and bring a friend!
For BSANA residents, we are reducing the £8 per class to just £3!
Be quick and register by emailing BSANA at taichi@bsana.org
Clothing: comfortable, come as you are!
We look forward to seeing you there!

Tai Chi
Time: 2:00pm – 3:00pm.
Venue: Walford Hall, Carey Street
Bangasumnida: Greetings!
New Tai Chi classes are every other week.
Body & Brain Yoga and Ki Gong is rooted in Korean Taoist tradition which develops the full potential of the brain, eliminates stress, and revitalises the body. Through physical training we release deep tensions, strengthen and detox the body, and develop flexibility. This allows our bodies and minds to become happy, healthy and peaceful. The classes are focussed in Yoga, Ki Gong, Meditation and Vibration and combine East Asian healing and energy philosophies.
These classes are for young and old, the able and the not so able. The aim is not to become super fit, or to gain the perfect physique but to simply focus on what is really important: your health.
We are hoping to host these classes on a long-term basis, but we’ll need a good attendance to keep them running. So get excited and bring a friend!
For BSANA residents, we are reducing the £8 per class to just £3!

To show you how it will work they are starting with themselves as guinea pigs with a menu called Abruzzo to Veneto, which tells the story Laura’s Italian roots.

Venue: The Oasis, Baker Street
Join jelly artists in a family workshop for BSANA residents to create your own lantern for a very special parade with Santa taking place in Reading Town Centre on Saturday 3rd December. As part of ‘Light Up Reading’ for Reading’s year of culture, jelly artists are working with families in workshops located in north, south, east and west Reading to create lanterns and light up the town.
In this workshop, you will use willow and tissue paper to create a lantern. Refreshments provided by Pop-Up Reading.
After the workshop you will be invited to parade on a short walk from Jacksons through the town which takes place on Saturday 3 December at 5pm leading Santa back to his bus.
Jelly is an energetic charity championing the creative arts. We have played a strategic role in Reading’s cultural life since 1993 – enabling art to appear in unexpected places and creating opportunities for people to look on and join in. We believe in the power of the arts to delight, intrigue, challenge and enrich, and we’re committed to forming creative alliances and partnerships that encourage art and cultural life to flourish.

Anstey Road Bin Meeting
Time: 6:30pm – 8:00pm.
Venue: Salvation Army, Anstey Road, RG1 7JR
Bins – we all hate them. They’re smelly, block our pavements and they’re ugly, making home a less nice place to come home to. Anstey Road had a bin problem worse than most. With no front gardens to speak of, there were over 80 grey and red bins cluttering the pavement! Wanting to improve things for our residents, BSANA and Reading Borough Council developed the first collective street bin trial in town for the residents there. It’s had its ups and downs, but the overall reaction to the idea at least has been positive.
Our hope has been to have a successful enough programme so that other streets plagued with “ bin blight” can benefit too.
Finally it is the time to have your say! Wednesday, 2nd December from
6:30-8:00 p.m. at the Salvation Army on Anstey Road, Reading Borough
Council will be having an official Consultation on the programme to
collect feed-back on what has worked and what hasn’t. The Lead
Councillor for Neighbourhoods, Councillor Liz Terry along with our Abbey
Ward Councillors, the Street Care Team and BSANA will all be there to
hear your thoughts. We’ll also be discussing the “rat issue” at that time
as it relates to this programme especially and update the street on what
is happening.
Anstey Road residents are especially encouraged to come out for this,
but if you want to learn more – or hear the update on the rat situation in the area, too, please do join.
Reading Borough Council and BSANA are really interested in your feedback!
Alternatively, you can send your feedback to bins@bsana.org.

By now, there’s no one in BSANA-ville that doesn’t know we’ve got loads of money to spend around here. As such, with that much money coming in, we have been legally advised to become a charity. We have therefore had to wordsmith our current constitution into a Charity Commission format – and we need to have a Special General Meeting to get the Constitution approved to submit to the Charities Commission.
Please come by for a short meeting (as there really is not too much to go over on the finer details of the Constitution itself) but your vote is essential! We’ll also have a brief catch up on the latest BSANA news whilst we’re there. See our Proposed Constitution for details.
Come enjoy tea and nibbles with your neighbours (free)!
