Helmdon Reading Group

Helmdon Reading Group - An Introduction

The first Reading Group was set up in the village in 1999. It ceased to meet as numbers dropped off when members moved away or decided to take up other activities, and a second reading group began in 2005 and is now fully subscribed.

A book is chosen each month, up to two months in advance. We meet once a month in each others' houses to discuss the relevant book. We usually have wine and refreshments at these gatherings.

If anybody is interested in finding out if there is a vacancy, or would like to know more about the Reading Group or would like to set up their own, please contact Jean Simmonds or Audrey Forgham, or use the contact form below.
