Barnsley & District

Discussion Group

The Discussion Group normally meets at 6.30pm on the last Friday evening of each month in the Tesco Community Room at the big Tesco off of Wombwell Lane (Stairfoot), S70 3NS.

Please Note
Please remember to tell the security desk, immediately to your left as you enter the main doors, that you are in the Community Room. They will record your car numberplate to avoid you being fined if in the carpark for over three hours. Also note that only the Group Coordinator needs to sign the register at the security desk by the front door. There is a separate register for group attendees inside the Community Room. (Sign out again when you leave so that Tesco can make sure you are accounted for in the event of a fire).

Members take part in a lively, friendly discussion on topical or controversial subjects, taking it in turns to lead the group on a previously agreed subject or one of their own choosing.

From time to time there might well be some wandering from the original theme but this usually adds to the interest of the ongoing discussion.

Last year we discussed a very varied range of subjects. In January we discussed our increasing reliance on money and all the modern technology it can procure for us.

The growing problem of teenage pregnancies was one topic of conversation and also the wider difficulties such as single parentage and the question of the cost of accommodating and supporting them.

At the other end of the cycle we talked of financing pensions and increasing longevity.

The expense of warfare was one very hot topic together with “should we be engaged in our current range of conflicts”?

The list goes on!...

Coordinator: Linda Francis
