Friends of Waterloo Meadows

Waterloo Meadows is situated in the Katesgrove area of Reading off Elgar Road alongside the River Kennet and is within a few minutes' walk of the town centre. It consists of grassland including a wildflower meadow with bramble thickets and small areas of woodland. Along the river edge there are alders and willows. In February 2013 a new community orchard was planted at the site.

The Friends of group which was formed in 1993, organise monthly tasks throughout the year generally on the 3rd or 4th Saturday of the month, and on ernate Wednesday evenings during the late spring and summer.
