Anybody in Berkshire?

Hi, new here, as you may have guessed. wink Anyway, I was wondering if there were any local groups or people in Berkshire, because I haven't heard of any, and it seems that people down here are just...too passive to do anything, so it would be nice to know if anyone with a similar outlook exists around Berkshire. smile

(On a kind of random tangent, I found out a couple of days ago that apparently Berkshire hasn't existed formally for a few years! Everything I know about local geography is a lie! cry wink )

I come from west Berkshire but don't live there anymore, although all my family still do and have been involved in recent political battles like Newbury by-pass. There are a few people around, particulary in Reading, which is also, of course, home to the England's greatest football team!

BTW if you think Berks is quiet, try Kent!

where abouts in berkshire are you?? I live near slough although spend a lot of time in reading and maidenhead areas. am also quite a newcomer to this site. must admit, havnt really felt much of an anti-cap presence in this area, but i guess its up to folk like us!? have noticed the swp havin more of a recent presence in reading college (student union, loads of posters etc) Im involved at the moment with a campaign to stop the building of two huge waste incinerators near slough (colnbrook to be precise) if your anywhere around here (altho i should warn ya, its a local resident campaign and nowhere near as horizontal as id like, but may be improving!!)

cheers, cya, stuart.

I'm in Bucks but spend quite a bit of time in the Berks, mainly the Maidenhead area...used to live there and such but erm, no I haven't spotted any Anti-Cap presence in the area whatsoever, it'd be good to get a group started if enough like minded people were found to be in existence smile red n black star
