Meet the team

Newbury Pride is a charity that consists of the trustees and committee.  There are also a large number of volunteers that work with us to make Pride a success, we really could not achieve what we do without the help of our lovely volunteers.  None of the trustees or committee members is paid and put the Newbury Pride events on in their own free time.
