Mince pies Are you interested in the origins of the words we use? Did you know that Mince Pies are so-called from the Latin word minutiae meaning “small bits”?

The Etymology Group meets on Zoom at 7.30pm on the third Tuesday of each month. The group picks a topic to research during the following month. Then each member presents their findings to the group. Some people screenshare Powerpoint or Word descriptions but that is not essential. Recent topics have included Place Names (preferably rude or humorous), Insults, Music and Medicine.

If you would like to find out more, phone Joe on the number above or email him by clicking on the Bluebird.
