What we do

We are a small group of people who like to write, and we write anything we fancy from autobiographies, poetry, children’s stories, or purely descriptive articles to full–blown novels which may or may not be published at some stage. Our work can vary in length from a few lines to a few pages or more. We do not have a set theme.

At our fortnightly meetings we read our latest work, providing copies for other members which they take home and read again at leisure, and at our next meeting we will review what has been written and make helpful (we hope) comments on other member’s work.

We are all amateurs who just enjoy writing. If you like to write, why not join us?


November 2018

Since the Open Morning three new members – Gwen, David and Peter – have been welcomed to The Group, which means we are, at present, ‘fully subscribed’. We have, therefore, now got a little waiting list to which anyone can add their name if they wish to join us as and when the opportunity arises.
Please contact George, thank you.

August 2018

Fortunately the hot, dry weather has not affected the diverse wellspring of written pieces and comments that members contribute to the Group’s activities.

If there is anyone who would like to be a part of this fount of erudition, please don’t be backwards in coming forwards, you would be warmly welcomed whatever the weather!

May 2018

The Group has been sorry to say its ‘Goodbyes’ to Andrew and Nigel, and sincerely thanks them for their erudite and insightful contributions to our proceedings.

We have been delighted to say our ‘Helloes’ to and welcome Sue and Ken to our ranks, and we look forward to reading more of their work in due course.

As the way the group ‘works’ is not amenable to everyone, if you are thinking of joining us it is strongly advised that you attend one or two meetings before deciding whether or not you would like to join – the 20p charge for tea and biscuits will be waived on your first visit.
