This is a small open group of people that gather to share a cuppa and listen to some stories and poems that are read out loud by the group leaders.Memories are often triggered by this, and shared if people wish. A small voluntary contribution to refreshments is appreciated. Text is provided for those that wish to follow the reading and an opportunity is offered for those that wish to join in the reading out loud, but just listening is fine also. The group is kept small 8-10 people but occasionally vacancies arise. Please contact Sue Pengilley before coming to discuss the availability and suitability of the sessions.
