I heard that HP plan to complete the move to their Bracknell site in October, so I guess the parking there will depend on if/when they sell it. Call me an optimist but I can't see the site being that easy to sell, any firm wanting to take it over would probably knock it down and rebuild it.

Sooner or later it will go, and there doesn't seem to be 1000 spaces becoming available from other firms. Maybe its time to join CostCo.

It depends on when they move out rather than when they sell so it is unlikley there will be parking there after October. RFC are trying to get this decision changed and also find other sources of parking but it is not easy.

This is one reason STAR was not only willing but eager to sort out a season ticket scheme with Christ the King school at £80 for the season for secure and certain parking. Once it is settled and working well it can be used as an example with other organisations with spare parking so may in the long run give a real boost to possible parking in the area.

Exiles section of STAR website updated as below:

STAR EXILES

For those Reading supporters who live away from the town, whether North or South, UK or abroad, then STAR Exiles is for you. We aim to cater for all exiled Royals fans, putting you in touch with others in your area and keeping you up to date with news from the Madjeski Stadium, via the STAR website and our newsletter – Reading Matter.

If you’ve ever been to a Reading away game and wondered how many others live nearby and have made a similar journey, now’s your chance to find out. Whatever the reason you’re living away, either through work or family commitments, or perhaps whilst studying at University or College, your local STAR Exiles branch is there for you.

We have established UK branches covering the north and Scotland, midlands and parts of Wales and the south-west. Elsewhere we already have many STAR Exiles members and are keen to develop other local branches to serve the rest of the UK and overseas.

Our main aim is to put fellow Royals supporters in touch with each other and our UK branch members meet up for social events and regularly travel to local away games and the Mad Stad together. As well as the normal STAR benefits (eg, 10% megastore voucher) we are also able to arrange block seat bookings for most Reading games both home and away.

For Exiles living overseas we can still help you meet other Royals fans, maybe to watch televised games together until you can get to the UK and hopefully join us at a match. Despite the distance, we want you to be as much part of the STAR Exiles group as our UK members.

STAR regularly meet the football Club management who take a genuine interest in our members views. Trevor Mossman, the Exiles Co-ordinator is an active member of the STAR Board representing exiled fans and giving you a voice within the organisation.

So whether you’re based in the UK or abroad, we want to help you support the Royals from afar and hope you decide to join STAR Exiles. You’ll find a warm welcome amongst our members, and if there’s not yet a local group in your area, together we can get one going, we’re sure you’ll find membership worthwhile.

To join STAR Exiles or for more information, please contact exiles@star-reading.org

Hi.

I've heard a lot of talk about the Norwegian branch, but I'm not sure if it still exists. The domain http://www.reading.no doesn't exist anymore and when it did the site was never updated. In some time I could be interested in doing something here, but I need to know what's happened and if something will happen in the future. Does anyone know?
