We asked you which is best, Twiglets or Mini Cheddars. In a referendum-esque way, the result was very close: Mini Cheddars 56% to Twiglets 44%.
Therefore, the Twiglet voters are claiming a win and a fresh vote. The Mini Cheddars voters are saying, “Let’s get Cheddars done.”
The Retreat customers are contradicting the poll result by protesting from their seats and eating more Twiglets then Mini Cheddars.
Attempts at community conciliation have been made by Luke and Phil who are both residents of St John’s Street.

Quiz Master Mike Burt was away last week on Quiz Night. The event went along as scheduled. Mike wrote the Quiz and Mark Birmingham was the guest Quiz Master.
There was a huge spread of scores ranging from, “how the hell did they do that?” (84.5/100) to, “is this quiz always like this? (38/100). But great fun was had by all.
If you live in St John’s Hill, St John’s Road or St John’s Street in Reading RG1, you are invited to meet your neighbours at The Retreat in October. There are many long term residents and lots of newcomers to the Village. Come along and say hello. Children welcome.
