Our Group is not Academic. The only qualifications required are a love of, and interest, in poetry. We explore all kinds of poetry from the Classics to the Moderns. Books are bought on line as needed (at the best price) and we each pay for our own books. Long standing members have quite a range of books, and these can be ordered, if required, by one of the groups on behalf of new members. We have 'Free Choice' meetings at the beginning and end of each term, when members share their particular favourites will the Group. The format is that we choose the book from which we would like to work and then we take turns to read aloud, making any comments we have at the end of each poem. The Group is friendly and welcoming. A few of us have been in the Group for 12+ years and are still enjoying it very much.

This group will restart in September.
