The Ding - Reading wiki.640w.png

The Ding is a guide to anything to do with Reading generally: arts, culture, community, business, services, history, sports, recreation, education, politics etc...

It's a Wiki (like Wikipedia): anyone can create and update pages (though you need to register as an editor first). (We have some RULES regarding discrimination, exploitation, advertising etc.)

We don't want to replace any existing sites and groups covering Reading or areas or groups within Reading: where these exist we'll link to them. For example there are:

We also have our own The Ding Facebook group for day-to-day discussions and events.

We currently have created only a few pages (here's the list) but have ideas for other topics this site could cover:
