Recommended by WeyBay book club is their latest read which everyone gave one of the highest marks. It’s “The Thursday Murder Club” by Richard Osman of Pointless fame.  We could all relate to it about life in a very upmarket retirement village. It’s funny but had a good story - a real “who dunnit “.  

Everyone has relied on books, television and films to get through these last few months,  Any recommendations to pass on to other members will be very welcome.  

What a strange year we have all had but there is hope around the corner and with that in mind we are planning to have our annual WeyBay bike ride this year.  For new members this is open to everyone, e-bikes, road bikes or your daily bike you use for shopping, everyone is welcome.  In the past, we have cycled around Weymouth using where possible cycle paths, stopping for a coffee en route and then a café or pub for lunch.  For the hardy among us some have continued after lunch and then stopped for an afternoon cup of tea or even a gin and tonic. 

The planned date is Wednesday 14th July.  This is just before the school holidays and hopefully as in previous years it will be warm and sunny.   At this stage I just need an idea if you are interested.   Please contact Jan Summers for details.


Make your own stylised felt necklace. Over two Zoom sessions we shall make a colourful necklace using the wet felt process.  In the first session we will make the wet felted beads and discuss placements of beads.
