Culture and Community
Every year the Reading Festival takes place which has been running since 1971. The festival takes place on the Friday, Saturday and Sunday of the August bank holiday weekend, and is the largest festival of its kind within the UK, aside from Glastonbury Festival. Until 2006, the WOMAD festival was also held in the town until it moved to CharltonPark in Malmesbury, Wiltshire. There is also a Beer Festival, one of the largest in the UK and is held at King’s Meadow for five days preceding the May Day bank holiday every year.
Pest Control in Reading
The older parts of the town centre have severe pest control issues with rats due to the poor state of buildings and infrastructure of some areas. The sewers are a constant source of pest control problems regarding rats & mice. Rats will thrive in older sewer systems where they can feed & burrow into the walls of broken sewers, then spread to the surface from collapsed pipes or other breaches. A railway line and 2 rivers run through the centre of Reading, both add to Reading’s pest control problems as both supply food and cover for rats & mice. As well as these factors PEST UK carry out pest control treatments for domestic & commercial premises which include: ants, bees, bed bugs, cluster flies, cockroaches, rats, mice, squirrels & wasp nests. Some parts of Reading are riddled with Bed Bug problems due some parts of Reading having densely packed housing conditions with poorly maintained sewer systems as well as a high percentage of these areas being near to railway lines, canals or one of the two rivers that run through Reading. PEST UK carries out pest control work for several housing associations in Reading (including Southern Housing, James Butcher & the Co Operative) & also pest control for all the local council’s in the area. PEST UK prides itself for helping councils with ‘difficult’ pest control jobs.
