Book Club

The Book Club is based in Brockhampton and is open to anyone who would like to spend an evening to discuss their current reading.

For more information about the next meeting and current books being read please contact Nicola on 01242 820369 or click here to email.

The books are selected by the group. We try to select more than one title to give people a chance to get on with at least one.
We are more interested in good conversation than highbrow literature, although we like a good book!
We meet every 6 – 8 weeks in each others homes from half past seven to about nine.

We would welcome new members if you are interested you can get more details
from Nicola on 01242 820369.
