Our visit to Locks Heath Day Centre in March

This was a return visit. Our  morning of readings started with informal chat with everyone there over a welcome cup of tea or coffee before reading an assortment of stories and poems. We certainly enjoyed our visit and hopefully so did the staff and clients of the Day Centre.

Our Summer Lunch in August

Fortunately the weather was kind and we had a very enjoyable casual lunch at the Chairman's house in Hill Head.. Not everyone could make it for various reasons, mostly health related. We hope most of our writers will be able to be at the September meetings - we have lots to discuss!

Our Winter lunch

On Thursday, 22nd November we had our traditional Winter Lunch at the Wheatsheaf public house in Titchfield.

We had an excellent turn out and were all in good spirits. We probably all ate too much – for which we blame the Wheatsheaf for laying on such a tempting menu. It was a good opening for us to the forthcoming Christmas festivities, however I feel certain quite a few of us will still eat too much – anyone got an instant diet up their sleeve?
