Wokingham in the News eBook

Local Historian and Society member Jim Bell has completed the mammoth task of bringing his collection of articles from local newspapers up to the end of the 20th Century and has kindly allowed us to reproduce his work as an eBook, Wokingham in the News 1858-1999, on the Society’s website at www.wokinghamsociety.org.uk/Wokingham_in_the_News.html.

Here is a picture of our press launch on Monday 15 August 2016:
