Our meetings are held fortnightly in members home on Mondays starting 7:30 pm. Like all other UK groups we plan our own programme which contains a diversity of subjects. Everything is open for discussion, no holds barred. What else do we get up to at our meetings? We sometimes do crafts, we might do a play reading, we review books, we discuss politics, religion, sex, anything that takes our fancy. We like quizzes, we participate in the annual Telephone Treasure Trail. Some of us are in the national postal book group. But most of all we laugh. One husband has been reported to say that he loves hearing our animated discussions and gales of laughter. We take it in turn to host. Prospective new members can attend three sessions FOC.
