We have a monthly book discussion and various general social events at least monthly e.g. Sunday lunch pub roast, occasional movie, picnic in the summer (ever optimistic for the British summer) etc.

The book discussion Meetups take place on Mondays though I am now trying out Sundays aternoons occasionally for people who might find a Monday difficult.  Obviously you'll get more out of it if you've read the book and we won't hold back on discussing the ending which may result in spoilers - but it's not compulsory to have finished the book to attend.

Hope you'll be joining us soon for either or both the book meetups & the socials and please do make suggestions if you'd like to try a particular venue or activity.
