Prior to lockdown our friendly group – which has up to 16/17 members – met on the third Wednesday of the month in the church hall on Towers Avenue.

During the lockdown members have held Zoom meetings.

The theme for the next Zoom meeting on Wednesday 23 June  is “Freedom”. If you wish to take part, just choose a previously published poem of your choice on this theme and email the poem to John at johnmichael.waddell@btinternet.com  John is chairing the next two meetings and will send you a Zoom invitation by email. The meeting room will be open on Zoom from 6.45pm for a prompt 7pm start.

Our July meeting will be on Wednesday 15 July and the topic will be decided at the June meeting.

When social gathering can resume, all will be welcome, with or without a previously published poem, to join our informal and merry group. A glass of wine or fruit juice will be on hand to help promote conviviality.

Please note that the following ground rules apply to our meetings:

  • Everyone is welcome, with or without a poem.
  • As the meeting only lasts 90 minutes and with numbers often as high as 16 or 17, out of courtesy and respect, no-one should speak for longer than 5 minutes. This time is to include any introduction to the poem and the discussion that follows afterwards.
  • One of the best aspects of this group is the wide range of published poetry included at each meeting. This is to be welcomed and applauded.
