A new session, a new venue, and new members – a great start with a turnout of 31 people.
Jack welcomed all and outlined the season’s syllabus. He also mentioned the splinter groups (circles and folios) which give more opportunities for members to discuss their work.
The committee seems to have chosen a good venue in the library: more light, less noise, helpful staff and I.T. on hand.
Judith gave details of this session’s running competition in The Pencil: short diary entries inspired by local life. Get in touch for more details. Other fairly short pieces by members are also welcome for The Pencil.
The morning finished on a light note with us inventing ‘funny definitions’ for unusual words.
