Junction Arch Heritage an Arts (JAHA), a Community Interest Company (CIC), based in East Reading, are attempting to acquire the Cemetery Junction Arch from Reading Council in order to turn it into a Heritage and Arts Hub.’
Reading Old Cemetery itself offers the locals a tranquil escape from the high volumes of surrounding traffic, and a large area of green space, rich in flora and fauna, which off-sets the dangerous levels of air pollution. The walls and trees completely shield the area to the extent it’s easy to forget you’re in a town at all.
If you believe in, and back this project, please don’t hesitate to get involved with the JAHA community group. The more people we can enlist to help, the more successful this project will be. It is a project worked on by the community, for the community.
