There are a number of websites which contain a wealth of information about clubs, societies, organisations and businesses in West Berkshire, mainly in Reading and Newbury. Below you will find links (in no particular order) to several such sites and we hope you will find this a useful "portal" for information about leisure and business activities "beyond Beenham". If you click on a link, the site will open in a new window, so that when you have done with it, simply close the window and you can continue browsing from here. Please note that many of these are commercial sites. The Beenham Parish Council accepts no responsibility for the content of external sites, and their inclusion here does not imply any endorsement.
