Hastings & Rother

Current Affairs 2

Current Affairs Group 2 meets at 10a.m. on the first Tuesday of each month at my house. There are 8 members. The group's discussion is structured, yet informal. We have social chitchat over coffee/tea on arrival and quickly go round the group asking for titles of topics people have brought along. Topics do not always have to be up to the minute subjects.

Each month has a designated leader who then invites someone to introduce a topic which is discussed for as long as the group feels right - no longer than 20 minutes. It is the task of the leader to diplomatically bring the group back to the topic if people are 'going off at a tangent' unless the group agrees that the discussion will be enhanced in this way. The leader then asks someone else for a topic. A second cup of coffee/tea is always available later in the morning!

Opposing views are always expressed and respected and it is the leader's task to keep things moving in an informal way.

At present, we have a waiting list. The core six have been together now for over three years and field a quiz team known as the "Witsend Wits". Witsend is the name of our house.
