  • Graham Evans will be there to help with IT issues.
  • Information about the Members On Their Own group will be available.
  • Jena Mason who convenes the current Creative Writing group will be at the Members Drop in. If there is a enough interest a second group can be set up.

Providing you have a Facebook account you can find our page by following the link below. Once you have requested to join the group, there is a short verification process prior to being accepted by the group administrator. The following link will take you through to the Group.
