The club now has in excess of twelve members and a large back catalogue of modern fiction, classic novels, science-fiction, biography and travel books having been shared.

The meetings are very informal and members are free to speak as little or as much as they wish but of course it is always more interesting and lively when opinion is divided on the merits of the book under discussion.

Books are either bought individually or they may be borrowed from the local library. The reading group does hold a library card which entitles them to borrow books for an extended period.

There are no fees but every member takes a turn in hosting one of the monthly meetings and with the present membership this would then occur roughly once a year.  New members are always very welcome.
