Will Reading get the nod?


Have just read that Gordon Brown gives the thumbs up to Reading becoming a city in 2012.  The full article is here:


I do hope that our town is at last recognised.  I love Reading with it's eclectic mix of people, it's odd mixture of brand new architecture and the contrasting ancient; it's vibrant night life and quiet walks.  A stones through from countryside, yet a growing economic town with constant expansion taking place.  

I came to this town in 1993 and never looked back.  I do hope that we will be celebrating city status, just as those in Wolverhampton and Preston have done!!!

Downing Street was already talking about the town having a city centre the other day...
