Once a month the Group 'Via Zoom: Video Conferencing.) reads and discusses one book from the year’s schedule, which is democratically chosen by members each June. We rarely agree in our criticism, which makes for lively discussions, often producing amusement and even hilarity! We have just realised that since the Group’s inception we have read and reviewed 150 books, though, at our age, we may not remember all the titles!


Lockdown Easing July 2021
For the past year, since lockdown we have been meeting on Zoom once a month to discuss the month's book we have been reading, and this has worked very well, but we are keen to get back to meeting in person, so the beginning of July will be our first opportunity to meet inside, and all the members of the group are happy to offer their homes for our meetings.
At the beginning of August we plan to have our annual garden party, when we have literary quizzes and puzzles and discussions, followed by afternoon tea.
We have already compiled our booklist for next session.
Pauline Dennison.
