We are a friendly and active group that meets weekly in members’ homes on Wednesday afternoons at 2:30 pm. (We take it in turn to host and lead meetings.) We do occasionally meet at other times, such as Wednesday evening or Thursday afternoon, for example. When we don’t have hostesses available, we meet up in The Poacher. Our programme includes discussions, theatre outings, walks, craft and creative writing evenings, a book group, and many other topics.
In addition to the NWR membership fee, our group has an annual fee of £5 for trips, library books etc. and a fee of £2 which we give to hostesses when they host. There is no charge for meeting up in a pub. You can attend as many or as few meetings as you like, and you only pay the weekly fee when you actually attend a meeting hosted by a member. You can attend a couple of meetings to try us out before deciding whether you want to join NWR. Currently, the group has 17 members. Weekly attendance is typically in the region of 4 – 12 people.
