Choose Caversham

A Thriving Riverside Village Steeped in History

The Caversham Traders Association

There is a strong sense of community amongst the business owners of Caversham, and the flourishing Caversham Traders Association (CTA) works hard to make living, working and shopping in Caversham a pleasant experience.

Our aim is to attract shoppers to the village and support initiatives to improve the general appearance of the area. Over the years, the CTA has successfully lobbied local government and MPs over issues such as crime, street lighting and town planning. In our efforts to keep Caversham safe, we maintain strong links with the local police, as well as local residents associations and safety forums.

The CTA markets Caversham in a variety of ways. With over 2,500 followers across Instagram, Twitter and Facebook, we work hard to use our social media presence to promote our members' businesses. And one of our greatest achievements was the creation of this Choose Caversham website, which aims to be the definitive guide to the area for both locals and visitors alike. In our bid to stay ahead of the game, we are delighted to have completely revamped the site in 2022.
