READING GROUP 1
Reading Group 1 was the first to be established for Runnymede U3A and it began in 2004. Since then the group has flourished with an average membership of 10.
We meet once a month in the leader’s home and we try to read as wide a selection of genres as possible. We always read at least one classic book a year and this year we have read Persuasion by Jane Austen.
Books are chosen by the members and are ordered by the leader through the SCC Library in Chertsey.
After reading the chosen book we meet to discuss it. Opinions often vary and that makes for a good discussion, and with a relatively small number in the group, everyone has the chance to speak if they wish.
The afternoon always ends with tea and biscuits and the opportunity to set the world to rights!
