On the first Tuesday of every month the book group meets to discuss a novel, biography or non-fiction book. We provide CDs or cassettes of the book the month before and we can try to meet requests for large print and Braille. We meet at 10.30am for coffee and a chat before the discussion. It is a very informal and friendly group.

Walking Group

This group undertakes walks in the local area on a Wednesday afternoon from April to October.
