Neighbourhood Action Groups (NAGs) are made up of volunteer representatives from the local community. They help plan local policing tasks based on priorities identified by those communities.
In June 2015, the Upper and Lower NAGs combined and now meet at different locations every six weeks.

Help Keep our Streets Clean

Please report to RBC all litter, fly tipping and similar problems via smart phone app or web link at http://loveclean.reading.gov.uk. Alternatively please phone RBC Contact Centre on 0118 937 3797.


Community Noticeboard
A team of EGRA volunteers manages the noticeboard. It is there for the local community to use to help promote local events and issues Please help us keep the surface in good condition by only using drawing pins. We know that’s not always easy, so you may need a hammer. Thank you.


Friends of Clayfield Copse
The group meets on the first Sunday in each month at 10.00am in the car park for active conservation work in and around the woods. For more details and contact information, visit http://www.econetreading.org.uk/clayfield/. New volunteers are always welcome. Phone Anne Latto on 0118 9484454 or email anne_latto@yahoo.co.uk.


Emmer Green Surgery Patients' Group
All our local surgeries hold regular meetings to give patients the opportunity to comment and discuss how things are run (not medical matters). Emmer Green Surgery hosts theirs on the fourth Tuesday in the month (please email RCCG.emmerpatientgroup@nhs.net to check as this sometimes changes).

New participants welcome. For more information see http://www.emmergreensurgery.co.uk/ppg.aspx


Highdown Sports Facilities
The pool is still accessible to clubs and schools, but for the time being there are no open public sessions. EGRA is liaising with the school regarding reopening of the pool for community use.
