St Paul's Book Club

Launched during lockdown and initially online, our Book Club provides an opportunity to chat informally about a wide range of books, films and other media over a cuppa or lunch.  We choose a book every month (with plenty of notice) - some modern and some classics.  If you prefer we provide a link to a film version where available. 


We meet alternately lunchtime (at Coach House Cafe, 12.30) and evenings (at St Paul's UR church, 7,30), usually on the first or second Thursday each month and post the details on our events pages. Anyone from the local community is welcome to join us - just come along or if you would prefer to know a little more please contact Cathy H, Angela or Sue
