Abbey bid decision is expected any day


Jane Austen went to school there and Oscar Wilde languished in jail.
Now the council is waiting with bated breath to see if it has been successful in its bid for £285,500 to create an Abbey Quarter around Reading’s historic heart.
The Heritage Lottery Fund is expected to rule on the bid by the end of the month.
Plans to breathe new life into the area around the Abbey Ruins were drawn up under the coalition of Tories and Lib Dems and pursued by the current Labour administration.
