What better way to spend the dark winter evenings than sitting around nattering about books over a glass of wine? If better ways have popped into your head, do not read on… The first get together of the new village reading group is on Thursday 29th November at 7.30pm. A big thank you to Jude Allen for setting this up – the aim is to meet monthly, though not necessarily on Thursday nights. That can be decided at the first meeting, which will take place at Jude’s house at Tophempston Farm in Uphempston. All are welcome to come along to this informal gathering and to bring along any ideas on an appealing selection of titles. Contact Jude or phone her on 867 392 or 07895 192202 for more information.
