FANCY getting out of the house today? We've put together a list of some of events for you.

Newbury Library is to host the latest of its Reminiscence Sessions as part of West Berkshire’s Dementia Friendly Community.

The free sessions take place once a month on a Saturday morning, starting today, from 11am - 12 noon, then on February 25, March 25 and April 22.

They're suitable for anyone with memory difficulties and their loved ones, and anyone of an older generation who doesn't have dementia but would simply enjoy the social activity and reminiscing.

Newbury District Ornithological Club will be hosting a winter morning walk on level ground around Speen Moors – suitable for all abilities. 

Those interested in attending should meet in Northcroft Leisure Centre car park at 9am.  Ring 07796 605016 for  more details.

Need to pick up some stuff for the kids? The Mum2mum Market will take place from 10.30am-12.30pm at Thatcham Catholic Hall, 7 Bath Road, RG18 3AG. There will be a baby and children’s nearly new sale.
