Book Group

We are a group of people who enjoy reading books and meet regularly in the Garden Room throughout the year.

Our aim is to provide an open and friendly environment within which members can discuss the designated ‘book of the time’.

We select a book by recommendation and everyone reads it prior to the meeting. Then, over refreshments, we discuss the book and have an open, friendly and stimulating discussion about the author and his/her work.

This arrangement gives us the opportunity over the year to read books in different styles and genres, and by different authors.

Here are the proposed dates for the 2019 meetings of the Book Club:

  • 17th January
  • 3rd March
  • 2nd May
  • 13 June
  • 29th August
  • 17th October
  • 5th December

Any changes to these dates will be posted on this website.


Our next meeting is on Sunday 3rd March in the Garden Lounge at 7.30pm. The book of choice is “The Hundred Year Old Man who climbed out the window and disappeared” by Jonas Jonasson.

Sitting quietly in his room in an old people's home, Allan Karlsson is waiting for a party he doesn't want to begin. His one-hundredth birthday party to be precise. The Mayor will be there. The press will be there. But, as it turns out, Allan will not . . .

Everyone will be warmly welcomed !
