BOOK CLUBS

WeyBay supports three book clubs.  They meet regularly to review the suggested books - and enjoy a good chat with other members.  Ask at the WeyBay meeting about joining one of these groups - or setting up your own.


COFFEE MORNING

Thirteen WeyBay members including four new members met for the first monthly coffee morning outside the New Vic for the May coffee morning. They just walked over the road to enjoy coffee on the beach at the Boat Café.

This is a monthly event meeting outside the New Vic on the first Wednesday of the month at 10.30am. All members welcome. See you there.

WEYBAY LUNCH AND SUPPER CLUB

The WI lunch club meet every month. We are quite a large group, but not every member turns out each month. There is a rota, so each member takes a turn in choosing a venue.  We have had lunch or supper at some very nice pubs and restaurants. Anne O'Neill started the ball rolling with lunch at the Ship Inn on the harbour. Subsequent venues have been Cote in Dorchester, the Kings Arms in Portesham, the Balti House, the Nothe Tavern, The Springhead Sutton Poyntz and the Cove Inn Portland.

So far we have all enjoyed meeting up and having a good chat with members who we wouldn't usually talk to. It's been a good way of making new friends.

There are about 30 ladies on the current list, which is now closed. In June, by which time we will have  been meeting for a year, ladies can decide if they want to stay in the group. If some pull out, we will have room for some new members to join.

BOOKS

WeyBay members are invited to bring a book that they have read and swap it for another.  Many members add a short review.  Many thanks to Sarah Holmes for organising the book swaps each meeting.
