Families Need Fathers - Thames Valley

FNF Thames Valley Branch - Maidenhead/Reading area. Meets 1st, 3rd, and 5th Mondays of each month (meets Tuesday if Bank Holiday Monday). We have been active for over twenty five years in and around the M4 corridor. We cover the Reading area, Maidenhead, Slough, Bracknell and Windsor and have had members even as far out as Oxford. For many years we met in a pub in Bray, which is why that is part of our domain name. You are welcome to come to meetings and we strongly encourage you to become a member of FNF.
