After a short break over the festive period, we’re back with our regular timetable of activities and are looking forward to welcoming you all back in 2019! This week we will be running a reduced timetable as we ease ourselves back into the swing of things, therefore there will be no evening classes this week (7th-11th Jan). This also means that there will be no table tennis session on Tuesday 8th January. We plan on running all evening classes and activities as normal from next Monday.

Join us every week as we discover new authors and stories together. This is a lovely way to meet new people and enjoy reading together.
