Caversham newspaper celebrates 600th issue

Caversham Bridge’s 600th issue Phil Creighton

A community newspaper for Caversham is celebrating its 600th issue … weeks after celebrating its 50th anniversary.

Caversham Bridge has been published for more than 50 years and, with its January 2015 edition, it is marking its latest milestone.

The newspaper is published by the village’s churches and contains a mixture of local news and features. With the recent demise of the Reading Post, the paper’s role in chronicalling life in the busy part of Reading is even more important. 

A note of the front page of the issue says: “The longevity of this newspaper is entirely due to the work and dedication of many volunteers over the half century.”
