The Best Things
  • being wokingham
  • fake tan
  • Moved out of London to be able to afford a step onto the property ladder.House prices still very high but area is seen as a very good one. For people that only know W'ham, London is not all that!!! Could be any capital city in the world. Overcrowded and way overpriced! Lovely market town close enough to a bigger town such as Reading if wanting to shop etc. Great local pubs.
  • getting on the train to reading
  • Wellcoolbuds delivers free to Wokingham. Check out www.wellcoolbuds for all your hydro needs!

  • What the hell is Brain Talbert on? Centurion Europe Limited Doncaster is an extremely successful and a good company to work for. I am in the last year of my Business Management degree, and wouldn't be if not for the support and dedication this company provided me. Not only did this company help me through a personal difficulty it made me realise what I wanted to with my life. People don't be fooled, Brain Talbert obviously has a chip on his shoulder! The spelling mistakes in his statement could be an indication to the low level of contribution he would expect to make to any future employer and the irony is that this person refers to himself as 'Brain'!
  • Knowing that I don't live there anymore.
  • CHILDHOOD MEMORIES
  • ELM PARKKKKK!!!!!!!!!!! rox on the dealers in elm
  • In wokingham? u gotta be kidding
  • Turning around in the taxi and seeing the dull town drift away into the distance.
  • the holt school and forest is the best schools in wokingham. Unlike St Crispins and Emmbrook.the only reason you would wanna go there is if you wanna get pregnat at 14 and be on dope for the rest of your LIFE!!!
  • The Emmbrook School it is now not Pykie at all. however forest attracts many gay pykie boys and holt attracts ugly pykie women
  • Greg's the bakers! and ramps of course
  • not everyones a pikey
  • No matter what anyone says, everyone that has grown up in Wokingham will always have a soft spot for it!
  • The Woozely Boyz, just luv em .I have lived in many places but Sirius is the best, 2 riots, well over 20 police raids, that car crash that took out 3 cars, Their is ALLWAYS mad shit going on. you can say shit bout Sirius but its not that bad people dont get robbed or beaten its well safe.Every just gets high and chills, unlike whinch boyz.a?
  • The pasty shop without doubt the only decent place to visit for a bite to eat when out browsing in the many Wokingham shops
  • ST CRISPINS, LONDON ROAD MASSIVE>
  • just walkin and talkin wid ya mates
  • girls-we have some real hotties
  • You can always bump into people you know and have not seen for ages, once in 'Nam always in 'Nam its like the f'ing bermuda triangle you can never get out, you always keep coming back. The best things .. =/ hmm well for me its the curry houses, and the amount of pubs in such a small area =) now people reading this are going to know who I am! I have spent many a bladdered night in 'Nam and will never forget it, even though now i have moved over to the darkside (Bracknell). ;)
  • nothing at all to be honest.
  • Nothing to do around wokingham, but that's OK because the flow of hard drugs into here makes it all worth while - you don't get much trouble out of Wokingham youths - they tend to love everyone. Officer! Check those pupils out!
  • You go home for the weekend to see your mum and you bump into at least 10 people you used to hang round with.
  • Not a lot really, other than Pizza Express and the mini Marks and Spencer.
  • loads of pubs and easy women. good proximity to reading as well. simons lane is also a good part of wokingham. this is probably the nicest place a person could want to live in. the best schools include forest and holt.
  • best things about wokingham is the public transport out of town
  • It is Wokingham. It is HOME.
  • The gnome:- A plastic Gnome shot through the head with a bb gun. The readily available source of drugs and a joke of a police force.
  • Now the Showcase Cinema has been built, I have no reason whatsoever to go to Bracknell. Woo Hoo!!!!!
  • Wokingham is a bit posh and the local paper keeps banging on about it being the most affluent Town in Europe. I suppose that's quite good. Reading is nearby and has loads of new clubs, pubs, bars and the brand spankingly new Oracle Shopping Centre! Also, we have a quality astroturf at Cantley. Everyone is welcome to take on the boys every Sunday afternoon...come and have a go if you think you're hard enough!
  • steves curb
  • If you ever get the chance and have several hours to spare, take aleisurely stroll around the Wokingham Town Football club souvenir shop. It features a massive selection of old programmes and is the size of an old airing cupboard. It is in what used to be the Skateboard Park entrance building.
  • The best thing about Wokingham is the memories. I had very happy school days at The Holt from 82 to 89 and often think back in a quiet moment here in Australia.
  • It is close to London
  • Good selection of pubs all within walking distance of each other. Plenty of curry houses. Still has some 'market-town' qualities about it.
  • The best thing Wokingham I think, is that you can be in a new Industrial Estate one minute and the next minute you are in a lovely old street with loads of character like Rose Street (where I used to live) with quaint (don't you just hate that word?) little low-ceilinged cottages and what have you.
  • The best thing is there are loads of pubs, the worst thing is, they are full of wankers. Beer = Morlands, Courage, Fullers, Brakspears(yuk!!)
  • WANKERS? I don't think so. Some of us really enjoy living in Wokingham... Loads of pubs with a nice friendly buzzing crowd who go to pubs then go clubbing in London, to exclusive places.
  • Ten pin bowling and Snooker at the Pheonix club.
  • Wokingham Town Football Club now in the 1st Division after being relegated last season. But the good news is they are near the top of Div 1 now.
  • Lots of motorways allowing a sharp exit from a god awful place.
  • You're right about the wankers and the pubs, but The Queen's Head? - For Pringle sweater wearers only. May I also add that Wokingham also has a burgeoning hockey club. The men's first team recently got promoted to the Southern premier division despite the consumption of shed loads of nasty Morlands.
  • Joel Park, a place when I was at school at Emmbrook we used to go to and chat up the girls at Holt School, then take them into the trees and get on down.
  • The best thing about Wokingham is leaving it. It's a grotty narrow-minded Thames Valley nowhere town where I had the misfortune to live for nine years.
  • Wokingham has one of the best choral societies in the area: ambitious, attracts excellent orchestras and soloists, not too expensive, and doesn't demand that you can sight-read with your eyes shut. Contact Debbie Hounsell on 0118 979 3406. Only downside is the lack of a decent venue for an audience of 500; Lower Earley leisure centre is wonderful if you don't mind the air conditioning and the smell of sweat, and aren't too fussy about the acoustics.
  • Lots of pubs and nice men especially my boyfriend: I Love you Simon!!!!!
