Members may contact the relevant coordinator for more information on group activities.

Book Lovers If you love reading, this is the group for you. We meet monthly, normally in the Ely library. Each month we have a different theme, and read one or more books on the subject and at the meeting describe whether our choice of book has lived up to our expectations, and whether we have enjoyed it. It is a really good way of gaining an introduction to different authors. But Book Lovers is more than a reading group; sharing member’s interest in everything to do with books.

If you would rather be in a group in which you all read and discuss the same book then Bookmarkers is for you. In this group, each member takes it in turn to choose a book 3-4 months in advance, and then hosts the meeting to discuss it.
Meeting are held in members homes on the 2nd Monday of each month at 2 pm and extra members would be welcome.

The Cryptic Crossword Group We are a very small group and meet in each other’s houses as often as we can. Meeting times are arranged as we go along. For further details please contact Susan.

Details about the Writing up Family History group are to be found on the History and Family History page.

Poetry This is a new group that meet on Zoom every two weeks. The next meeting is on Wednesday 10 February at 3pm. They will be reading light, traditional, modern and home-spun poetry and discussing the authors along the way. Initially the idea is to meet during lockdown and the darker nights but who knows how it will evolve.
