We also organise cinema trips now and then and in the past have seen The Great Gatsby, The Book Thief and Philomena to name a few. Sometimes, we even just meet up for tea and cake and leave the books at home!

We know how busy life is, so there’s no pressure to come to every meeting, although we'd like you to attend regularly.  We look forward to seeing you at our next meeting!
