WRITING FOR FUN
Our group meets every second and last Friday in the month.
All it costs is £8.50 per year, payable directly to the Bowls Club.
The Bowls club manager, John, does encourage everyone, though, to have their own key fob which costs £5 per year (so he doesn’t have to keep getting up to let people in)
The £5 is returnable if or when you hand it back.
The annual fee entitles you to use the Bowls Club as a social facility at any time
(it’s a pleasant way to enjoy a drink and to watch the bowling)
We are located in a small committee room which accommodates 8 people.
Currently we have 10 members so if we all turn up we have to beg a couple of chairs and squash up!
We are always happy, though, to accept new members if at all possible, so please contact me if you would like to give it a try, or just sit in and see what we get up to.
We take it in turns to be leader – then:
The 2 hour meeting goes like this……
We all read out our “homework”, the theme of which has been given to us by our previous leader.
Then we have a good gossip, usually based around the pieces (though not necessarily)
The leader then sets an off-the-cuff exercise, which we again read out. This usually ends up with us all laughing.
The object to the group is mainly to have fun and at the same time keep our brains ticking over.
So you don’t have to be a budding author, playwright or poet. Everyone is welcome.
