The RPCSG held a very successful awareness stand at "The Stage", Woodley on the 15th July, dispite the weather being foul and having to pack up early. Many thanks to those who came along and manned the stand. Below is a picture kindly taken by Steve Smyth - apologies to everyone else who took part.

Social Events

Here we capture a few photographs taken at our Events throughout the year. The main focus will be talks given by Professionals in the field of Prostate Cancer. Where the speaker agrees we will include a link to their slides and video clips so that all may study the material, share it with others and improve awareness of this wide spread form of cancer affecting around a half of all men at some point in their lives.

We also intend to cover social activities involving our members. In all cases you have the final say on what is included - especially where you are caught in a photograph - many of these might be off-guard! Names are not included except for those giving talks and have otherwise agreed to release this information.

Summer Social 9th August 2017

Our annual Summer Social will be held on the 9th August 2017, in the evening at the Calcot Hotel. Arrival is from 6:30 p.m. with the meal being served from 7:15 p.m. There were some adverse comments following the Summer Social in 2016, particularly about the food, and these have been expressed to the management of the hotel. They have said that they will correct the cause of complaints, and make extra effort this year to provide a satisfying occasion.

As this year is our 10th anniversary of the founding of the group, the committee has decided to mark this occasion by subsidising part of the cost, and reduce the cost to members to only £10 per person. The number of places is limited, so if you would like to attend the Summer Social, please let us know of your requirement for places soon. You can make payment at one of the group meetings, or you can post a cheque payable to 'Reading PCSG'. The contact person for reservation and payment is Graham Cook. You can contact Graham by email to confirm your requirement for places. If you prefer to make your payment by post or by bank transfer, please email Graham for details:

The evening will consist of a hot and cold buffet meal, a raffle and a quiz.
