Conservatives from across Berkshire were out in force to support the Reading Pride parade and festival on Saturday 1st September
The Conservatives have had a presence at Reading Pride since its inception in 2003 and a group of Conservative members from Reading East, Reading West, Wokingham and West Berkshire joined the parade through the town centre for the 15th consecutive year. Reading Pride has a great reputation as a very friendly and welcoming celebration of diversity. It’s a fantastic event for everyone in Reading as it successfully promotes equality whilst raising awareness.
Alison Swaddle President of Reading East Conservatives commented: “Reading Pride was again a huge success. Reading East Conservatives were delighted to be involved with the event and we had a great afternoon talking with visitors and listening to the views of local residents."
Prime Minister and Maidenhead MP Theresa May sent a letter of support for Reading Pride.
