Welcome to Tilehurst Parish Council

Situated to the west of Reading, Tilehurst Parish extends from the A4 in the south to a few metres short of the A329 in the north. The Reading boundary forms the eastern border whilst its western border follows the line of the Sulham escarpment.

The present Tilehurst Parish was created on the extension of the Reading Borough boundary in 1919. Tilehurst Parish Council became responsible for the rural area of the old Tilehurst and, with the remainder being within the Reading Borough area, it became known as Tilehurst Without. It now serves a population of approximately 14,500, with an electorate of approximately 11,100, and covers an area of 11 square miles.

The Council manages four recreation grounds and three community halls. The Parish’s Sports Centre and two further plots of land are leased to West Berkshire District Council to meet education and social service needs in the local area.

ROAD CLOSURES WITHIN PARISH - for updates on road closures within parish, please see our Latest News page.


Two new clubs for young people are to start in the Jubilee Annexe, Calcot, hopefully in June 2022.  There will be an Art Club for children in school years 7-9 from 7.00-8.30pm on Tuesdays, and a club for young teenagers from 7.00-8.30pm on Thursdays. 

Both clubs will be run, on behalf of Tilehurst Parish Council, by qualified youth workers from Berkshire Youth, and adult volunteers are needed to help on both evenings.

This is an exciting opportunity to help the local community and young people. Previous experience is not necessary, but anyone interested in volunteering will need to be available on Tuesday and/or Thursday evenings. DBS checks will be carried out on applicants.

For further information or to volunteer, please contact the Clerk by e-mailing clerk@tilehurstpc.co.uk or calling 0118 941 8833.
