Join us online at 7.30 pm on Monday 17 January for a general chat and a discussion of the poetry collection Black Country by Liz Berry. We may also be reading aloud some of her work!

December Book Club

The next Book Club is on Monday 6 December when we’ll be meeting upstairs at The Woods, at the slightly earlier time of 7.00 pm, for a bite to eat, our annual Secret Santa book exchange and to discuss The Light Between Oceans by M L Steadman. For Secret Santa, we each bring along two books, individually wrapped, which are ones we’ve previously enjoyed and would like to pass on for someone else to enjoy.

November Film Club

Join us online at 7.30 pm on Monday 22 November when we will be having an informal chat around Radioactive and Lucky, both available on Amazon Prime. Radioactive is a journey through Marie Curie’s legacy, her relationships, scientific breakthroughs and their consequences, staring Rosamund Pike. Lucky stars Harry Dean Stanton as an irascible nonagenarian maverick grappling with his mortality.

We continue to meet in person at St Matthew’s Church Hall on Wood Lane. Join us from 7.45 pm on Monday 8 November to learn about “Buy Nowt LS6” a new pay-as-you-feel Library of ‘Things’ created by a group of local volunteers in order to encourage people to borrow instead of buying the things they need.
