Round at the local shop this morning I noticed the above headline in the Reading Chronicle. This set me thinking. Here are a few suggestions:
- New Reading
- West Sonning
- Greater Tilehurst
Number 2 would probably have been the favorite had Reading FC managed to come back from 3 goals down against Manchester United on Tuesday evening ("Coppell" is the surname of the Reading FC manager). Sonning is a small picturesque village a few miles down-river, the residents of which appear all to be millionaires. Tilehurst is a suburb of Reading. The last one is in recognition of the large number of Polish workers in the town, so many in fact that the Reading Chronicle actually prints a Polish language edition.
More details of the renaming plan can be found at the Reading Chronicle Blog.
