Come and join us


Have you ever read a good book and been dying to talk to somebody about it? Our group gives you an opportunity to discuss what excited, moved or annoyed you about a book in the relaxed and convivial atmosphere of Sampford Courtenay's New Inn.

You may find yourself reading books you wouldn't normally touch or recommending books that had an impact on you. It's a way of trying different authors and finding out how other people are affected by the books they read. Whatever book is chosen, it always provokes a lively discussion. 

So, if you want to stimulate your mind with interesting conversations, do join us! We meet at 7.30pm on the last Tuesday of every month. For further information, email Ishbel Gordon:
