14th March 2019

Our meeting in March was with the Taxi Driver Poet -James Haddow – “performance poet and all round nice guy” whose poetry delighted us. He made us laugh and at times brought a tear to our eye, as he delivered a programme of poems both funny and full of pathos about his life and lost loves.  

14th February 2019

Our February meeting was a Valentines special! Members enjoyed Prosecco, cheese and biscuits, chocolate and had an evening of games and a Valentines quiz, using our new projector and screen (many thanks to the Parish council -they will be well used).

Our first book and supper club (for members only) will start on Thursday 24th January at the Bull Hinton- please contact Anne Brennan if you wish to attend.

New members are very welcome and can contact committee members via the Link.

8th November 2018

November was our AGM and we took time to reflect on the year. The committee and president Sharon will all be continuing on and our new programme was well received. 

After these more formal parts we moved into a fascinating talk by Nick Papuca. Nick brought along his two sons, and retold the story his father relayed to him at the end of his remarkable life titled “The Winter of the Wolf (Wolodmyr Papuca); about his father as a WW2 Ukrainian teenager growing up under Stalin and Hitler and his harrowing survival against all odds. It was a
